Here Comes the Summer

Memorial Day Grilling

We had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend­, filled with friends, cookouts, the beach and lots of fun birthday activities for me on Saturday. It definitely feels like “the end of the year” the way it used to when I was in college—so many fun summer things to do bundled with friends visiting, flip flops and that slightly sun burnt feeling. The biggest reason, though, is that this is my last week at my current job. Our art department was cut earlier this month and Friday will be my last day.

Thankfully, I’ll be heading to a wonderful new job on Monday as a Web Designer / Front-End Developer at Wingard Creative. I’m really excited about it and it’s sure to bring lots of new experiences. It is located directly in historic 5 Points in Jacksonville, where I’ll be working just across the street from antique stores, quaint boutiques, a classic theater and some incredible restaurants.

One of the things I love about Wingard Creative is the focus they have on Jacksonville and local businesses. Developing and improving the local community is a big priority for them and it’s something I’ve always been passionate about. They have very diverse clients and I’m thrilled to be working with them.

Shaved Ice

So in the next few days, I’ll be packing up my cube, filling out lots of paper work, and getting ready for change. My blog posts may be a bit sparser in the coming weeks as I get settled in, but I will try to post when I can. I know I’ll be doing a lot of exploring this summer and have quite a few projects and recipe plans up my sleeve. Not to mention plans for many, many more cups of shaved ice!
