Life changes + that one time my sister got married

The past 5 days have been a complete blur/whirlwind. Not only did I get a new job offer that I accepted, but my little sister got married this weekend and she made a gorgeous bride. I successfully didn't trip walking down the aisle, delivered my matron of honor speech, and am still sore from getting down on the dance floor.

Just a few phone/photobooth photos of us. :)

My mom and I. Convinced I look just like her (and she looks an awful lot like my grandma..)
Photobooth madness and DH jumped in

With my Dad. :)

On January 27th I will be starting a new job at a new organization. I'm super excited, nervous, and really really thrilled. I'm going to a non-profit organization which is a brand new venture for me. I've primarily worked for private companies for the past 7 years so this will be a change. It was a hard decision, but ultimately I couldn't say no. And so far, every coworker that I've told has been so incredibly happy so it makes me feel even more confident in the choice I've made.

Heading to Vermont (!) and NYC for the long weekend and to say goodbye to my NY office. I may or may not freeze in Vermont but I have been wanting to see snow.

When you've left a job in the past... what are some ways that helped you to transition smoothly?


  1. Congrats on your new job Laura! I left my old job in NY for one here and that is the only time I have had to change my place of employment. I am probably going to be working where I am now until retirement! Anyway, I think the best thing to do is observe the "culture" of the company/organization and then to try to fit in as best you can.

    On a side note you and your sister look great! Congrats to your sister!
