Well friends, I did a thing last month.I made a very big and bittersweet decision. I said good-bye for now to my home of almost 4 years, the National Institute for Civil Discourse (NICD).
Over the past 2 years, Honey & Lavender has been my fun side hustle as I’ve also juggled a full-time job, being a great wife and mom, and running this blog. I’ve made the leap to running Honey & Lavender Events full-time! 🎉
While this decision has brought waves of wistfulness, vulnerability, and uncertainty, if COVID has taught me anything it’s to seize the day and treat every day like it’s your last, to believe in myself, and know I have the most supportive network a gal could ever ask for in a lifetime. I am so thankful for the love and support of my family, friends, clients, former bosses, and mentors and I can’t wait for all that is to come for Honey & Lavender Events!
My official last day was July 10th and my last staff meeting (and farewell) was last Monday, July 13th. In this short time I have already seen rays of light and signs from God that this was indeed the best choice for me at this time. Of course I realize there will be challenges and times of self-doubt as I navigate this journey, but I have my faith, friends, and family to lean on.
Cheers to new adventures!
