Sweater Weather

In case you haven’t noticed, 2015 is in full swing. 16 days in and I already feel like I need a vacation (says the girl who is currently unemployed and on vacation). I feel like I haven’t posted in forever (it has been since last year, after all), and we’ve got some catching up to do.

December 31 marked not only the last day of 2014, but the last day of my job as a CAD Artist with Kellwood. I’m not sure how much I’ve diverged on that job, but it was a great experience and really bumped up my resume and experience to where I wanted/needed it to be…BUT…it was only temporary. I knew from the beginning that there could be an end. There was a small chance it would turn full time but it just wasn’t in the books. But that 2 month temp job did turn into 5 months, so I can’t complain about that. So along with 2014, I say goodbye to Kellwood. And with 2015, I say hello to all the new and exciting opportunities ahead! And 2015, you have yet to disappoint me. Zack and I have both already had some really unexpected and exciting doors open for us in these first few weeks of the year. Some of those doors have just been cracked open for us and we’re working on kicking them open and seizing those opportunities.

Along with the unemployment, I’ve had time to reflect and renew and do some preparation for the upcoming year for myself and for the blog. I mentioned it in a past post, but I’ve got some new things planned for 2015. Not everything will be happening all at once but along with the food and fashion, I’m going to start sharing some DIY posts, wedding posts, and more. I guess I’m turning this into more of a “lifestyle” blog..if you want to give it a name.

But right now I’m laying on a bed in my family’s house in Wake Forest, NC enjoying some much needed time with friends and family on the east coast. My week here is almost over, and it has been a whirlwind of fun, food, and friends…and the early stages of planning a wedding (more to come on that in a future post!). NC has also been so friendly to welcome me home with highs in the 30s almost every day, along with a little mid-week ice storm.

Loving my time in NC, but I can say with certainty that I cannot wait to get back to the west coast when a 60 degree day is considered chilly (and having my fiance there waiting for me is a plus too)! However, even though my days left in NC are numbered, my days until warm and sunny Los Angeles are a little more distant. I told you guys, January isn’t messing around. I’ll be making another venture across the good ole’ US of A. Zack and I decided to buy a car, and of course we chose one that’s located in NC so…here I go again! This trip will definitely much faster than the last, but I still plan on making it an adventure and taking in all the new sights I will see and places I will be.

And when to going gets tough, I’ll just look at these pictures of last week’s beach day, and look forward to another day of longboarding, when a sweater is the only thing I’ll need to stay warm (if that!).
