Hello beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a fabulous start to your week so far and are ready to pull out those fat pants for Thanksgiving this Thursday. I am sorry for not posting lately or updating you about what has been going on here on the east coast. It has been a crazy past few weeks here and a lot of my free time has been taken up with work and planning. But I am back and have been brainstorming so much new content that I can’t wait to share with all of you really soon! For those of you who don’t know, I recently accepted a Media Associate position with a company called Starcom and I just finished my first-week last week. It has felt so nice to get back to a routine and start working in a field that I am super passionate about. So YAY! This Thursday is Thanksgiving and I am so excited to spend it, for the first time, in New Hampshire with my extended family. I am SO ready to have the food coma hit me hard and sleep my way through the weekend! Anyways, I have been giving a lot of thought to my list of things I am thankful for, especially since a lot has happened in 2019. So today I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share everything that I have been grateful for this year and always!
My Family (Near and Far)
A lot has changed. Specifically, a lot has changed from April to now and honestly I don’t think I could have gone through it all without the support of my family and Nick’s family (who I consider my own). Even now as I’m writing this, I feel emotional. I am so thankful for everything my family and Nick’s family have done to support me over the past few months. Between graduating, accepting a huge internship with Leo Burnett for the summer, losing my grandma suddenly, and a big move to the east coast, I honestly don’t think I could have done any of it without the constant love and support of family. So, I am absolutely thankful for my family as I always am!
Nick has definitely been a light through a lot of struggles not only since the move but throughout this year. I am always thankful for his constant love and support in anything I do and I hope he knows that his kind heart never goes unnoticed. Since we have started living together, we have grown closer because I think we both know that we have to lean on each other no matter what may come our way. We have had our fair share of struggles, but every time we come out stronger than ever and I am always thankful to go through life with him by my side.
Unfortunately, I was not able to bring my lovely best friends with me on this journey to NYC, but I have gotten nothing but love and support all the way from Michigan! I am always thankful for our fun moments together and I am extra thankful for those who have kept in touch with Nick and I. All of my friends mean the world to me and I don’t have any idea where I would have ended up without all of them in my life!
Health is so important to be thankful for because I feel like it can be something that is so easy to look over in our busy lives. I am especially thankful for my mental health. This year has brought so many new changes to my life and I know that if my mental health wasn’t in check, well then it could have been a very rough few moments. I am so thankful for being mentally, emotionally and (somewhat) physically strong and ready to attack anything that may come my way!
My New Job
Even though this is a new addition to my life, I am so thankful for the position I have at Starcom. I am learning a lot so far and it feels so good to be back in a routine and working in a field that I am so passionate about! When Nick and I first moved, we thought it wouldn’t take long before we landed something and started working. Little did we know that there was a different plan for us and the process ended up taking a lot longer than expected. I look at my new job so excited and thankful that I have this opportunity to learn and grow under some great leaders in my field!
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving this Thursday with your family and friends. I have so much new content that I am working on for you and I can’t wait for you to read what’s coming next. I’ll talk to you all again really soon!
