I have some news…

My office
I’m feeling a little guilty as I’ve been holding out on you guys. I’m not entirely sure why it’s taken me this long to confess, but a part of me believes that I wanted to make sure that everything came together before making the announcement. I’ve had pinch-me moment after pinch-me moment over the course of the last few weeks; it’s all just been too good to be true. But alas, it’s time!

I’m so thrilled to announce that I quit my day job and I’ve been hired to blog for Style Me Pretty at Home full time. As in, I get paid to stare at beautiful things day in and day out (pinch me). I can’t even believe that I get to oogle goodies the likes of what you see below while lounging in yoga pants each and every day. It’s been a crazy transition but I have honestly been grinning from ear to ear since I started on Monday. It’s hard to imagine that this is real life!

In case you haven’t heard, Style Me Pretty has recently announced the launch of their new blog, Style Me Pretty at Home. While we wait for our new site to get all set up and prettified, my new co-workers and I are holding down shop on the SMP wedding blog each and every Sunday, so be sure to check it out! And thank you all for being so supportive during the last 2.5 years. It’s been a whirlwind and without you none of this would have been possible.

Have the very, very best weekend my dears. xx
