We're gonna have a good day

I wrote this while on an airplane yesterday. I am now safe and sound at my parents summer house drinking coffee and watching the today show with my mommy. 

We're gonna have a good day…This is the song that keeps playing in my head, and it couldn’t be more true. If you were with us on our wedding day (almost 2 years ago) you know that this is the song that we walked out to as husband and wife. Now, two years later, we embark on a new journey. I am currently on an airplane home to be a part of my big brothers wedding. Big things are happening and I couldn’t be more excited.

Yesterday (August 30, 2011) was my last day as a marketing specialist at my old job. Some of you might call me crazy for resigning (this sounds much better than quitting), but I am here to tell you to follow your dreams. Do something that makes you happy and don’t just stay somewhere because you are too lazy to do something else. If you aren’t happy – for God’s sake, GET THE F OUT! Now! It isn’t worth it. You only live once and dedicating 2.5, 5 or 10 years to a job that you don’t love isn’t worth it. I knew that I wasn’t happy a while ago, I would dread getting up in the morning and the tasks became much more menial and less rewarding. I wasn’t doing something that I was passionate about, and I wasn’t able to incorporate the things that I was passionate about into my role. Yes, I did have a pretty cushy life. I worked from home and had some great connections and didn’t have to commute. I made pretty good money and we moved to Minnesota for my job. But you know what? I’ve already found something else. Something that I LOVE. Something that I will tell you more about later.

This summer has been the summer of traveling, and as I mentioned, I am on an airplane on my way to CA (for the 3rd time this month J)

I can’t wait to spend time with friends and family for the next 1.5 weeks, but most of all – I can’t wait to be a part of my brother and Kyla’s special day. I couldn’t have hand picked a better sister in law or wife for my brother and I know that they will be incredibly happy.

Expect much more from me in the near future. I’m back to blogging and will probably be doing so poolside for the next week. 


  1. i hate my job and have for the longest time. Im too lazy to find something. Im too lazy to even look. i hate this place and the people. I hate my boss and everyone else. I hate that i work 12 hours a day, get a measly 30 min lunch, 1 sorry week vacation a year, no sick days, on salary and still get docked time and $$ if i miss an hour here or there, no benefits, no insurance...i hate it and i just cant get over my laziness to find something. part of the reason i hate myself for keeping tracy and me and the kids in this shitty situation. oh well.

    Im glad for you that you are doing a great thing and being happy. Good luck to you and Dru. Im sure you will rock at the next job you get
