They say that when one door closes, another one opens. When it comes to your career, you might close the door yourself in pursuit of a new opportunity. Job hunting is quite the process and the feeling of accepting a job offer for a new position can be bittersweet. On one hand it’s exciting to move on to a new role and begin a new chapter of your life, but on the other hand leaving behind coworkers and a role that you’ve become accustomed to is sad and a bit scary.Read More
Are you getting ready for your significant other to pop the question? Getting engaged is such an exciting thing and it’s such a great relationship milestone to share with your loved one. From the anticipation to the actual proposal, there are so many little moments that make an engagement special.
You might remember that I shared all of the details from my proposal in Greece on the blog a few months back. Each time I look at my wedding rings I think back to that trip and how my husband asked me to marry him. It was the perfect day and I’m so happy that we get to share that memory for the rest of our lives.Read More
Instagram has certainly changed the way people capture and share photos when they travel. With hashtags and location tags, people can easily search for any destination and skim through photos posted by others. I have definitely searched location tags to find photos from other travelers before heading out on a vacation or trip of my own. There's something so cool about seeing shots from others - you can find cool places to visit, new restaurants to try out or even fun activities to partake in during your travels.Read More

Over the weekend I found out that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award! I'm so excited that others are enjoying my blog and the content that I write. It's awesome to see so many bloggers supporting each other by nominating one another for this award.
For a little bit of background, the Liebster Award is given to bloggers from other bloggers. It’s a way to get our blogs out there and share the love!Read More
If you've been following my blog for a while, you know that I LOVE to travel. I'm always looking for new places to go and new things to see. There's something so exciting about exploring a new place with family, friends or even by yourself.
I'm the type of person who would much rather spend my money on experiences than material things. If you came to me and asked if I wanted to go on an all-expense paid vacation or if I wanted a handful of free designer handbags, I'd pick the vacation in a heartbeat. But, that's just me!
Since I'm always on the move (playing off my blog's name - see what I did there?) I wanted to fill you guys in on my travel plans for the upcoming year. I'm definitely looking forward to all of my upcoming trips and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to travel for pleasure and for business purposes.Read More
Whether you’re a high school student, college student or someone who is interested in exploring new career opportunities, job shadowing is something you should consider. Job shadowing is beneficial because it allows you to get an overview of a position and a deeper look at the day-to-day functions of a job or position without having the commitment of being employed. It's a great way to get your feet wet and determine if a field interests you.
Some high schools have programs set up where students can job shadow people in the community or do an internship for class credit.
From what I’ve seen, job shadowing is most popular among college students. If you’re in college, my advice is to set up a few job shadow opportunities in fields that you’re interested in before declaring your major. Like I mentioned earlier, this will give you a chance to get your feet wet and explore a few career options before signing paperwork related to your college major. If you aren't able to job shadow before declaring your major or if you feel that you’ve made up your mind on the field that you’d like to go into, you can always try to set up a few job shadow opportunities directly related to your line of study.Read More
Wedding season has officially begun! I thought it would be fun to share the songs that my husband and I chose to be played during parts of our ceremony and reception. I remember looking for music inspiration when I was wedding planning and it was so helpful to read blog posts about what other people played at their weddings.
We were lucky to work with an awesome DJ. He was recommended to us by someone on my husband's softball team and he did an amazing job. On top of it, he gave us a really good deal and we saved a ton of money on that portion of our wedding expenses.
If you're engaged and looking for a DJ for your wedding, you definitely want to make sure that you do your research ahead of time and meet with multiple DJs before you decide who you want to book with. Consider things like pricing, the number of hours that the DJ will be at your reception and the overall vibe that you get from the DJ (Are they nice? Are they knowledgeable? Have they been in the industry for a while?).Read More
