I'm so excited...

...and I just can't hide it! I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!

I didn't write yesterday and, honestly, I wasn't planning on writing today. After finally finishing my last photo project, I was anxious to get back into my photography lessons and I just didn't feel like I had anything to write about! However, I am writing so there must be a reason, right?!

I WAS JUST OFFERED A JOB!! I interviewed about a week and a half ago for a position at a bakery doing wedding cake sales and consulting, with a little networking and marketing to expand their clientele. Today, the owner called and said she was sorry it had taken her so long to get back to me, but that they had several great potential candidates and they really wanted to think it through and choose the person that they thought was the best fit. Then she said that she thought I was that person and offered me the job!

I'm so excited! This job is right up my alley! Not only do I think I'll be really good at it, but I think I'll really enjoy it too! Not to mention that the wedding networking can only be positive for my photography goals as well! Yes, that's right, I'm not giving up my photography classes and I've set even more goals for myself since 2 different people have now asked me to potentially photograph their weddings in 2010! So exciting! I'll start training in 2 weeks and officially start the first week of July! I already have lots of networking ideas for them brewing in my mind, one of which involves a new blog so I'm hoping you'll all be supportive and help me spread the word when the time comes!

I'm so grateful for the support you all have been to me and, don't worry, I promise to keep up with my blogging too!!
