Breaking News!

If you read my post yesterday, you know i am VERY VERY excited! But about what, maybe you weren't so sure!?!?

Well, the news is now OFFICIAL, so i can tell you... 

{yes, i know there is a typo. i promise that was the flower place, not Aaron! Haha}

Um, yeah. I got a JOB! Not only a new job, but a job working for Aaron of Eye Wander Photo!!!!! Basically the really cool & hilarious guy that i was taking photography classes from is now going to be my BOSS! WHAT! 


They sent me flowers. FLOWERS! What kind of a new company sends you flowers to welcome you!? This one does! 

And no - i didn't shine in that photography class so much that he decided he had to have me immediately as a second shooter. HA! :) No, honestly, i JOKED with him asking if he needed an admin assistant & he said, 'Actually...I do!" Um. Say what??? Since then, it's been constant texting & calling & emailing to figure this out. The main thing was figuring out insurance for me, because i have to have it. But i got it figured out. And y'all - the way everything fell into place...the way every problem that came up was immediately resolved... the way all of this has unfolded...has been an obvious God-thing! He did this for me! God did! And i am SO THANKFUL! 

What is crazy is Aaron seems just as stoked as i do. (I never say the word, "stoked". But i just did. I think that is what this insane good news has done to me. Ha!)

 ANYWAY. I am going to be his administrative assistant! I will be working with clients, making them feel like family, sending them thank you notes, following up with them, making sure they are happy. I will be helping with designs & editing at some point, too. I will be keeping up with his database. And his BLOG! Hahaha! And a whole lot more, i don't even know what all! 

It is a steady 40-hour a week job. Monday - Friday. I may occasionally need to go on shoots with him, if his mom or wife can't (they both work for the company, too), but i am TOTALLY fine with that - and even hope to get to do it sometimes! 

There are about a million reasons why I know this is the perfect job for me! Everything about it has been smooth.  Total peace. Today i let my boss know i would be leaving, and she was completely supportive. 

My last day at my current job is February 22, and i start with Aaron on February 25th! Which happens to be my birthday week! I was worried this would be a crappy birthday - but now i think it might actually be one of the very best! :) 

ANYWAY - this has been something in discussion for almost 2 weeks, so... i am so glad to say it is finally OFFICIAL!
