Where I've Been | Blog Update

Well hello, my sweet readers! It has been a little over a month since I've been able to get a new blog post up. I wanted to hop on here today (finally) and give you all a quick update on where I've been and what I've been up to!

For starters, I had major technical difficulties with my blog over the last few weeks. I'm a party of one over here, so it took extra long to get all of the coding and technical glitches figured out. I was locked out of my blog for a little over two weeks (ugh!) but I'm back, and everything is solved!


Okay, so where to even start!?

I had new blog photos taken by my extremely talented sister, Jena. My sister has always done photography on the side and helped some of her photographer friends with second-shooting at weddings, or just taking candid photos at various events. She decided this year to really take her personal photography business to the next level, and I couldn't support that decision more! She is so great behind the lens and really made sure to capture exactly what I was looking for.
You can find her at: www.onebeautifullifephoto.com



My best friend in the entire world is expecting a baby boy! I have such a love for kids and I can't wait to be able to have a baby so near and dear to me, I am so excited! She is due in late October and I can't wait to meet the little guy. We had a reveal party to see whether it was a boy or a girl, and it turns out she will be having a little boy, Carter! By the way, isn't this cake amazing? Our friend Bess makes amazing cakes, and this one was no exception!
You can find her cake business (local to Olympia) over at her business Facebook page!

I've been playing a lot more golf lately, which is making me extremely happy! I played in high school and half of college, but after college I took a long break. I have joined a league once a week and I'm loving it so far. It keeps me active, helps me meet new people, and keeps my competitive nature going ;) I got paired with a super cool partner, so we've decided to do the summer league as well, which starts in a few weeks!

Oh, I should probably mention that I finished my masters program, I guess that is pretty big news! This was by far the highlight of my last few months, and a big reason as to why I've been absent from the blog. I've been enjoying my stress-free life being graduated, and I am trying to soak up as much of summer as possible. I received my Masters of Education in Guidance and Counseling, and I am officially done with school! I have accepted a position as an Elementary School Counselor (dream job!) and I start in September. I can't wait to start this lifelong journey of helping kids. 





So that's what I've been up to! Graduating was definitely the biggest bulk of what I've been up to, so I thought it was appropriate to update you all. Thanks to some of my readers (you know who you are) who have sent me sweet messages supporting me through grad school and my journey to becoming a school counselor. I am so thrilled to finally be done with my six years of college, and can't wait to go help some awesome kids! 

So what is happening with the blog? Nothing out of the ordinary:) I will be resuming normal posts very shortly, but am going to try and lean my blog toward more lifestyle posts potentially. They are getting higher views that my beauty posts, and I'm at a point in my life that those things aren't a huge passion of mine anymore. If there is anything specific you'd like to see, please let me know. 


As always, thanks for reading.
xoxo, Jaimie
