Weekend Rewind!

Now that I am officially in between jobs I am spending a little less time checking emails and a little more time catching up in the blog world! (Side note: It feels absolutely insane and liberating to not have work emails piling up on my phone or worrying about projects and deadlines.) This week I have big plans to finish unpacking, deep clean (goodbye construction dust), shop for home stuff, enjoy a spa day and more. I'm also hoping to take a bunch of pictures of our home progress to share with y'all too! Anyway, in the meantime, here are a few exciting updates from the past few days.
We unpacked our patio furniture!!!! Aside from Thomas still learning to navigate new steps, it has been so relaxing to spend time in our backyard. Also, there is nothing more gratifying than sweeping toddler dinner off the porch instead of scrubbing hardwoods on my hands and knees.
Matt is on the board of a local dance company, Caroline Calouche Co., and took Caroline to her first aerial performance over the weekend. She loved it and felt really special meeting the dancers after the show. She excitedly came home and told me and Thomas alllll about how she watched people dance from ropes.
We went to IKEA...with our kids. Caroline got an A+ for behavior and watched 2358743054 episodes of Little Audrey. Thomas was a maniac and wouldn't sit in the cart without screaming and basically touched every single thing in the store. But we made it out in under two hours with hot dogs and tons of stuff to assemble.
Oh, one last update -- on Thursday Sara hosted Supper Club! Her outdoor space is ridiculously amazing so I was excited when she picked a warmer month this year to host outside! The weather could not have been more perfect and a few of us stuck around late into the night sipping rose` and chatting. For dinner Sara made a delicious beef tenderloin, twice baked potatoes and her famous salad from last year!

A New Adventure!

So, I quit my job. And today is my last day.
Gosh it still feels really weird and sad to say that after five years of working for a law firm I have loved so much. Turning in my notice two weeks ago was honestly one of the toughest things I've ever done. My co-workers are like family to me. I adore all of my attorneys. I love my firm.

To be completely honest, I hadn't really thought about leaving. And I've been given a lot of opportunity through the years at my firm. But a really fantastic opportunity with another firm just a few doors down was presented to me. After several months of interviews, many nights of tossing and turning and tons of conversations with Matt, we ultimately decided the position was too good to turn down. In fact, it's an exciting promotion for me.

So today I am packing up my office, turning in my badge and saying my last goodbyes. I am so thankful I took this job five years ago. I had an incredible opportunity to grow in my career and learn from some of the best and brightest minds in the industry. And I've made some of the strongest friendships along the way.

My new adventure as a Business Development Manager begins May 1!

Carolina Charm Re-Branding Reveal!

Something look different?! Here's a hint...
Carolina Charm got a facelift!  

Over the past few months my bestie Laura has been designing my new look and I couldn't be happier with it. I love how simple and clean the header is, the new navigation bar, the fonts, the colors -- the everything! Isn't she talented? This is the third blog design she's created for me over the years and I think it's my favorite yet!

With so many exciting changes in my life, it felt like a good time to re-energize my blogging with a re-brand!

One more big announcement to come soon..stay tuned!
