Oh Happy [Boxing] Day!

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday filled with laughter and cheer, warmth (and snow), and lots of delicious food. We did. Everything but the snow. No white Christmas in Oklahoma this year. But we did have lots of laughter, cheer, and surf and turf! Before I'm ready to close the book on Christmas 2010, I'll give you a little show of what our Cowboy Christmas was like.

I love Christmas :-) Only 364 more days until Christmas! Or better yet... only 36 more days until my birthday! I should start my birthday list now...

Because you were so patient and did not pressure me at all into telling my great, exciting news (except for you, Michelle) I am ready to share. Drum roll please....

I got my dream job.

Yes, my dream job. What is that, you ask? I work for The Little Black Book. Which is a part of

For those of you who don't know what that is, I will explain. It is the ultimate wedding resource for brides. Filled with amazing real weddings, beautiful wedding inspiration, and the most current bridal trends. It is the blog I visit every day. It is the first thing bookmarked at the top of my Mozilla page. In short, it is a wedding blog. But not just any wedding blog, the wedding blog.

I do not say all this because I am now an employee. I would have told you this two weeks ago, before I even applied for the job. I would have told you this two years ago, before I was even married. So now you can see why I am so excited to be working for this company. 

I am a Research Colleague for The Little Black Book, the part of Style Me Pretty which works with vendors. We have vendor relationships all over the country, and it is only growing. This means I get to work with and talk to (on a daily basis) people who love weddings as much as I do. People whose livelyhood depend on weddings. In short, people just like me.

I work from home, which means I can take this job with us wherever we get stationed. Born in New York, raised in Michigan, educated in Colorado, and now in Oklahoma, I am a person who is bound to be moving a lot. The Air Force pretty much guarantees it that way. And with the wedding industry being based on the relationships you make, being a successful wedding planner was going to have to wait until we separated from the USAF. But now, I get to take my job with me. I get to stay with The Little Black Book wherever I go. I get to work from home, and stay current ahead of the curve in the industry I love.

So there you have it. There is my wonderful news. I have my dream job.

And yes Amy, I have always wanted to be a wedding planner, but since I decided to marry an air force pilot, my dream has changed to work on a wedding blog! So now I work for the ultimate! :-)
