Life Lately!! Big Changes Around Here, Date Night, Sweetest Boy and More

Hi friends!! Happy Monday! Another week is here already.  Does anyone else feel like this year is just flying by?  I can’t believe it is already August!  I have written this post about 5 times, but keep having to update it because I haven’t gotten around to posting! So today is the day!

You may have noticed my lack of posting this past month.. not to say I am on regular blogging schedule these days, but my posts have definitely been more sporadic lately.  I’ve shared with some of you that I have been feeling extremely stressed with my job and that I felt a big lack of a work-life balance, which is really important to me.  My job was starting to affect my relationships with my friends and family, and my husband, and I was overall was not happy in my job anymore.  I am a firm believer in standing up for yourself and making a change when something isn’t right or doesn’t make you happy anymore.  I told my husband I needed a change, I put myself out there and put in my two weeks with my job.  I had a really great opportunity pop up with a new company and I said “this is It! I am done!”  Sometimes when you know, you know.  I just knew in my heart it was time for me to move on from this job as I knew nothing would change unless I took action to make a change.

So anyway, here we are.  I started my new job 2 weeks ago (it is in the same health field I was previously in, just with a new company) and traveled to DC for training the first week.  I am so excited for this opportunity.  I instantly connected with a few people at my new company and just knew it was the right choice.  I won’t have to travel much for my new job, just once in a while, but the best thing about my new job is that it is remote so I will be working from home.  This is a much better fit for my family as you all know we tend to move around a lot.  For now, we are staying put in San Antonio, but with my new flexibility, who knows how long we will be here. 🙂

Last weekend Jon and I tried out a new-to-us restaurant in San Antonio.  We had reservations at Bliss.

We were celebrating my new opportunity!  This is a really fun place for a date night.

We split the mussels for an appetizers and my husband got some fish dish.

I got a really yummy veggie dish that I forgot to document, but it was delicious!

We grabbed a quick drink at a nearby outside bar then met up with my brother in law for some pool.

These two are doing just fine. 🙂

We got to watch my girlfriend’s little boy for the day a couple weeks ago and ohmygosh.  He is the cutest kid.  We took him swimming and out to eat and he spent the night with us.  After about an hour with him, Jon was like, “I am SO exhausted!” LOL.  He was nonstop.  He ran into our closet and put on Jon’s boots and goes, “I want to be Jon!”

We took the pups on a walk in the morning and he really loved Riley.  He said, “Taylor, it is important to share and you have two doggies and I don’t have any so I think you should give me one….just one.  I’ll take Riley and you can keep the big one (Callie).”  LOL I could not stop laughing.

  1. So happy all is wonderful with you Taylor. CONGRATS ON THE NEW JOB. It sounds like it was all just meant to be and the working remote part is INCREDIBLE. All great stuff.

    I also just gave my two weeks notice after 9 years at a job i loved. Just lots of STUFF was happening and it wasn’t feeling right. It is still very sad. For me this may mean a completely new chapter in my life as I am older (in my 50’s) so starting something new may not work for me. Time will tell. We have some vacations coming up so the timing is good on that.

    Really proud of you for living your truest and best life and being true to what brings you happiness. Life is short, never stop living this way.

    Sending hugs,

    1. Donna! So great to hear from you!!! Wow, good for you!!!! Sometimes you just know it is time to go, but it can still be hard. It was very bittersweet for me too. 9 years is a long time though so I can imagine that is really hard to leave. That is so nice you have some vacations coming up to look forward to… me too and I can’t wait. I know you will do great things no matter what your next path may be. Looking forward to hearing what is next for you!!!!
