Hey there friends and fam. It’s been quite some time. In all honesty it was rough time, so it was hard to blog in the thick of things. However, a silver lining is finally showing itself and that kind of stuff is way easier to write about. Everyone loves when struggles turn into success and there’s hope everywhere. Thus, I have a post filled with lots of new hopeful things to share. It’s about time.
New Mexico. After about two months, my time here is coming to a close. And what wonderful time it has been. I came here seeking space and a break from the difficulties California was throwing at me and I certainly got just that. Funds are finally starting to run out, but I’ve got a few more weeks before my new job starts- a few more weeks of travel and adventures.
Right. The new job. I am officially beginning a position with the Girl Scouts of Gulf Coast Florida as a program specialist. I’ll be helping to design and run programs for girl scouts throughout that region- in a full time position nonetheless. I’ll be relocating to Sarasota, Florida in about two weeks- just enough time to swing by home in Virginia Beach and say a quick hello before a quick goodbye.
Those are my big updates. I think I’ll keep this short and sweet and make a follow up picture post. I absolutely milked California for all it was worth before leaving- Yosemite trips, Redwood forest visits, Joshua tree a second time, and lots of quality time with my favorite folks. It certainly wasn’t easy to leave, but it was as good a decision as I felt. New Mexico time with Carrie has been a wonderful gift and desert time with mountains a surprising treat. Albuquerque itself is a quirky and cool little town and I feel really lucky to have this little window of life to experience it. I even managed to throw a NYC trip in to see both Jeremy and Waitress and it was easily one of my favorite New York trips ever. Anyway, here’s a couple pics and for more regular photo updates on my life, check out my instagram too :) online or @scfrench23 on ze app.
