{Thankful} A Big Girl Job


Have you ever been thinking, hoping and praying about something very specific and then boom- it just happens, gets answered and all falls into place? I equate none of this to luck, a coincidence or fate, but rather God's hand in my life and on this journey. He is so good and has the best timing.

Last week I wrote this post about how I long to do big things once I graduate, but even more, how I desire to work with people who are passionate about people and good design.  I was praying that doors would open and close where God saw fit, so I would be directed to a job that combined all of my passions. Last Friday I had the opportunity to go grab coffee {or tea in my case!} with Sara, the owner of Lulu & Georgia.  I was so excited to meet her, network, and get a glimpse into the life of a young woman business owner.  What I didn't expect was for Sara to tell me that she was looking for an assistant!  Needless to say, I was over-the-moon to hear this and immediately accepted the job :)

Working for Lulu & Georgia will be fun and creative, it will give me great skills and knowledge, and more than anything, I'll be combing many of my passions: people, good design, social media, the home, and style.  If you don't know about L & G, it's a chic online home decor boutique, carrying everything from beautiful rugs, lighting, wall art, furniture and accessories.  I've been a fan from day one, and to have the opportunity to work for Sara is a total answer to prayer.  I'll be helping to run the Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram of the company, as well as writing blog posts, helping Sara style photo shoots, choose products for the shop, and other fun things like that. I can't wait.  I am so thankful!

On another note, I had the best weekend! I spent it in Newport Beach with a friend and then even got to squeeze in an appetizer and drinks date with my sweet friend, Courtney from A Thoughtful Place. I love her to pieces :)

I have a few very exciting things coming your way soon: my bedroom reveal feature and an awesome giveaway! Stay tuned. How was your weekend?

Happy Monday!
Love,

  33. Michaela, this is amazing!!! I'm so excited FOR you. It sounds completely perfect for you...designed by God. Praying it's as wonderful as you hope it will be. Makes me think of Proverbs 3:5-6..."Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do and He will direct your paths."
