what's next + life lately.

what's next + life lately.

It's been six weeks since my last post...and SO much has happened since then like getting married! I plan on doing a full recap, but am waiting on a few details before I do a whole blog post. 

After the wedding, Connor and I opted to stay in Galena for a few days. I'll share more about our experience in the quiet little town next week, as well as why we decided to postpone our honeymoon. 

When we got back from the wedding + staycation, it was back to work. I've received lots of questions about what I'm doing for work now, so here's a little update for you: I work for Root3 Growth Marketing. I work with a few nonprofit clients which is super gratifying, and I manage their PR, marketing and business development. And, I love it. I always loved working on the essentials of my business even when I didn't love wedding planning anymore. Now, I get to do it for many clients, and watch their businesses prosper. 

Next week, I Grow is producing our first gala: Gather. We still have a few tickets left, and I would personally love to see you there. All the proceeds are going to fund our 2018 programming initiatives like: after-school care, hiring a new director, expanding our basketball court and expanding our urban garden to another lot. If you can't make it, donations are SO appreciated.

So, what's next for this little blog? Well, I'm planning on keeping this more up-to-date than I have in the past. Now that life is slowing down a bit, I plan on using this as a creative outlet. Expect to find posts about business, books and beauty as well as life updates. While I write content for so many clients now, this will be a little piece of me. 

So, for now, I'm enjoying this slower pace of life; if you can even call it slow? I plan on being a better friend, enjoying the long-list of movies I've never seen (Princess Bride, The Goonies, etc.) and trying all new restaurants in Chicago. 

With that, Connor and I are headed to Honey's tonight for dinner followed by a dance performance by amazing flybarre instructor Sarah. Lovin' these little date nights!
