Happy Halloween

Halloween-O

I can’t believe it’s Halloween already.  The past month has flown by in a flurry of job search activity.  There was one week where I had 11 interviews in 4 days.  It was exhausting but all so worth it.

I’m beyond excited to report that I formally accepted a fantastic job offer with an amazing startup here in San Francisco.  And the best news?  The people I’ll be working with are even more amazing…incredibly kind, smart and fun.  I think I finally found “my people” on the career front.

I’m looking forward to a lazy day trotting Orelia around the neighborhood in her costume.  There’s one lovely neighbor in her 70s who always points me out to her friends as Orelia and I pass by through out the year saying….”Yeah, that’s the lady who dresses her dog up for Halloween.”  I could be known for much worse things right?!  ;-)

(p.s. Just realized it’s my one year blogging anniversary.  Thanks so much to everyone who has read along and supported me along the way.  I’m truly shocked that anyone other than my parents follow my blog, but I’m very grateful.  It’s been awesome getting to know some of you online over the year. You rock!!)

Boo!

GraveThe entryway to my apartment has always been rather depressing.  So I was super excited when my neighbor suggested we capitalize on it’s darkness and transform it with spooky Halloween decorations.  It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time.

Orelia even got in on the action and supervised our work.  She’s pretty pleased with it.  Now if I can just make sure she doesn’t use the bathroom on the leaves in the graveyard, we’ll be golden.
