Oh what a whirlwind of a Summer!
I spent most of June prepping for my Cape Cod bride's wedding. Simply gorgeous! I saw some photos taken at the Wedding and I am in awe of how perfect the venue matched her style!
Definitely one of my favorite Weddings to date.
I'm currently working on a Christmas bride and an Autumn Bride, so lots of fun entries will follow for those!
July was a strange month for me. I had left my full-time job back in September to focus on some personal matters, but it was time to return to work. I spent July focusing on updating my personal site and my resume, applying for positions and contacting my agencies. Knowing it was probably going to be my last month at home full-time, I took advantage of the time and the weather to visit the lake a lot. I met up with friends for lunch, drove to visit friends I hadn't seen in awhile and trying to get into the working mindset again.
I was right about it being my last month at home. I found a new position and began in August. I went from designing my own stationery to designing for the financial markets. It's a good position to get reacquainted with the workforce. I'm dusting off my design skills I haven't gotten to use in awhile and even learning new skills. It's been hard, but, I think, worth it.
That brings us to September...
September was an incredible month, but the pinnacle was our first ever cruise. We're Disney fans, so we opted for going out to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream. That ship was exceptional, but my absolute favorite part of the vacation was going to their private island, Castaway Cay. It was beautiful, relaxing and just absolutely perfect! This is exactly the trip I needed after a whirlwind Summer.
October was spent meeting with new brides and continuing to comfortably acclimate back into the workforce. Now that it's October, I'm finishing up my Christmas bride and getting ready to deck the halls! Even though I live in New England and it's now below freezing in the mornings, I always love Thanksgiving and Christmas. They're such warm holidays and I enjoy decorating whenever I can.
That ends my Summer Round-Up post. I hope you got a good idea of what's been going on at An Inkling Design and I can't wait to share what's in store this year!
