Happy Friday y’all! I don’t know if you’re feeling the same way, but it sure seems life has been moving a thousand miles a minute, so I thought today would be the perfect day to take a deep breath and play a fun game of catch up with y’all! There’s been a ton going on so lots of updates to share!! Grab your coffee and let’s get to chatting! 🙂
TRAVEL– just made it back yesterday from NYC and Philly! Last Sunday I headed up to New York for a few big meetings for work, and then took the train to Philadelphia for some additional meetings in Westchester. It was my first train ride ever – such a fun adventure! I love traveling for work because I feel like it really inspires me to be out of the office and see what’s happening “out there”. I always come back full of ideas and ready to tackle any new project that comes my way! This was definitely an inspiring trip- although I sure missed my boys at home!
PATRICK BRETT FOUNDATION– some of y’all might remember that this year I’m honored to be the president of an amazing non-profit here in St Pete: the Patrick Brett Foundation. We give college scholarships to “second chance” students & in four years have given over $200,000!! Last Saturday we had our fall gala (our biggest fundraising event of the year) and it was a huge success! Not only was it amazing to see months of hard work come together, it was so exciting to see how much support there is in the community for our scholars and our mission! Truly a night I won’t forget!
PS- Planning a post soon on how I got involved in non-profit leadership and how I balance it with work and my social life! If you have any specific questions let me know!
DATING– I can’t even believe it, but it’s Rob and I’s 6 month anniversary today! It’s been the fastest, most fun, wonderful & magical six months of my life! Not to get to sappy on y’all on a Friday, but I had no idea just how wonderful being in love with your best friend could be until he walked into my life. We’ve had the best time ever and now he’s planning a surprise date night tonight to celebrate half a year together! I can’t wait to see what he’s planned! 🙂
(PS- I don’t share too many details about us, but would y’all want to hear more about how we met? How we make time for each other? Etc? Happy to share more if it’s something y’all would be interested in!)
