Finally...My Summer Announcement!

You know those times where you feel like you have to pinch yourself? Well, I've been pinching myself constantly for the past two days. In the midst of finals I mentioned that I had a big announcement about my summer plans...and finally, here it is!

A few weeks ago I had no idea what I would be doing this summer. I thought I'd probably find a little job and work part time. Little did I know that I would end up with the amazing opportunity to be Kelie Grosso's intern at Maison Luxe

To say that I'm excited about it would be an understatement. I knew that I needed an internship in order to graduate next spring, so I had been on the hunt for one. 

I seriously would have been fine with an entry level internship where I did filing in the back closet of a design firm. That would have been fine. Unfortunate...but fine. But even though I would have been content with that, I couldn't help but dream of myself being in some cool building downtown. And here's why I'm pinching myself. That picture at the top of this post? That's where I'm working. I've been sitting in those white chairs. What? WHAT? Glorious.

You guys, I know it's the best and I've barely begun. 

Maison Luxe is in the coolest space right in downtown Seattle. And Kelie is so sweet. And there's a pile of poufs in the office. A pile of poufs! Can you tell I'm excited?

Deer head...check.

Anthropologie knobs...check. 

I'm so grateful for this opportunity. I'm looking forward to what's in store for this summer and can't wait to show you guys more of what I'm up to!

Hope you're all having a lovely week :)

PS: Don't forget that I sometimes do 'Gather' posts at my mom's blog, The Inspired Room, and I'll also soon begin updating the Maison Luxe blog
