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.
Love this guy!
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.
So much more to share with you guys this week!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great week ahead!!!
