It's Been Awhile {Catching Up}

Well hello! It's been awhile. And by awhile, I mean since March.

So for those of you who have been waiting on my blog for the past 7-ish months clicking refresh waiting for a new post to appear and wondering how long I'm going to have a weird post about foxes at the top...this one's for you.

Since my last post I have:

-GRADUATED from college with my interior design degree. Hallelujah.

-Created my portfolio showing off my favorite projects from design school...which I will be sharing here soon!

-Started a job that I love as a designer for Restoration Hardware!

-Continued to work for The Inspired Room, which is the best.

-And on that note, hung out with some of the Better Homes and GARDENS crew while shooting a photoshoot in our kitchen that we designed together! The coolest! I think we'll be in the January look for us! :)

-Made a little Rifle Paper Co inspired recipe box for my art class...and have yet to become a master chef. Shocking.

-Turned 22, and been outgrown and outweighed by my 13 year old brother.

-Had the time of my life in a mathematics well as a biology class...and have now changed my career goal to be a scientist with an emphasis on mathematics. #PSYCH

-Found out that a former bachelor from Emily Maynard's season is one of my neighbors, and added him on Facebook, so there's that.

-Made lots of music with some of my best friends in our little band called Friends of Friends.

-Traveled to Canada for the first time for work in Vancouver, then met my family in Victoria for a lovely little vacation! It was a treat.

-Continued to ferry to Bremerton every weekend to help with the church my family and I started, and to work on The Inspired Room projects. Although ferrying every week, I've yet to see a whale leap out of the water by the ferry. But I remain hopeful. And I love Seattle a little more every time my ferry pulls back in.

-Added this little fluff named Lily to our household as Jack's little sister.

-Grew by 11,000 followers on my Pinterest...for reasons that remain a mystery to me. But I'll consider it a gift from the big dogs at Pinterest.

-Watched all the Harry Potter movies for the first time, so that I can now be a real true part of society. Favorite character: Nagini.

-Read the book 'Quiet' by Susan Cain and became even more fascinated by the differences in introverts and extroverts. Whether you're an introvert or extrovert, seriously read it!

-Laughed/cried/died at Kyle Mooney's videos, all day everyday. Videos such as this one.

-Went on a wonderful girls business/fun trip to Georgia with my mom and sister! While there, successfully helped remove a salamander from the depths of my mom's suitcase. After us all carefully pulling the suitcase outside with kitchen tongs, removing clothes with said kitchen tongs, and screaming.

And I think that covers it for now! Be back soon. Maybe sooner than 7 months this time.

Well. This was satisfying! Though I did really enjoy that fox post too.
