Ladies and Gentlemen...

I have a job.

I have been on the job hunt since May 15-ish. It was nearly an exactly 6 month long job hunt, when I was offered the job last night.  This job allows me to go home for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This job pays decently. This job lets me be in my industry.

This job is a Sales Consultant at David's Bridal.

I am nothing less than grateful for it. If anything, I'm so relieved to stop hunting for awhile. I'm so happy to get to work with brides. I'm so many things.

I'm feeling judged. I won't pretend that I haven't noticed that most of my school friends have stayed silent. (Not you E. <3 ) I won't pretend that I didn't know that people wanted so badly for me to have a 'real' job. One with an office and e-mails and on and on... But what's more important to me is having a job. That I feel like I'll be good at and enjoy. Plus...there is an addition to the DB family, come February. A woman synonymous with wedding. A woman with class and style, who will bring DB a whole new customer.


Finding joy, even in the common things of life....


  1. Congratulations on the job! I'm so happy for you! As for me, I'm starting the seach as well. I hope you have a fabulous first day!!

  2. I am SUPER happy for you! I can't imagine anyone in this economy not being grateful to have ANY job, and I think you'll be fantastic! I'm sure all those brides to be will love having someone so fashionable & enthusiastic helping them<3

  3. How awesome Jessica! You are going to do so amazing! And Vera...well she makes me want to marry my husband all over again so I can wear one of her dresses!


Like it? Hate it? Let me know! Keep it simple, civil, and PG-13. <3
