Life Lately

My last "Life Lately" post was history themed, but I'm not quite sure what the theme should be for this post. End of summer activities? Random experiences thrown together? Let's just go with: life.
Click to read now or pin to save for later! The end of summer has held lots of fun - here's a recap of life lately!

In August I had a business trip in Denver the week that Ally moved to Colorado Springs, so the timing could not have been better! We got to eat ice cream and explore bookstores and do nature things too.






Joe and I had a beach day down near his family's home. He was so excited to swim and I fulfilled my one and only beach day of the summer quota.


Joe and I also got to spend some quality time in the city, including sunsets and a Yankee game.




The end of summer also held Austen's birthday! If you don't already, make sure to follow her blog and Instagram, and you can read the story about how we became friends here.

This month I went to a conference called Mogul X with Sheetal. Mogul is a technology platform that allows women to connect and pursue opportunities to be "moguls." The conference had a slew of impressive speakers (the head of BBC America, Molly Bloom) and was a great place to reset your mind to focus on career development.

Something that really stood out to me was in the first session when the speaker asked for those who had a job to raise their hands, and 90% of the room responded, then she asked us to raise our hands if we felt like we were in the perfect job and not a single hand went up. It was a great reminder that no job is perfect, but we discussed how we can get closer to what we are meant to do and how to ensure that each career decision we make puts us in the right direction.
It's been a good summer, with lots of travel and fun, but I'm ready for fall to arrive!

How has the end of your summer been? Any exciting plans for this next season?
