settled in Asheville

Today marks Day #5 in Asheville! It's beautiful here! But coooold. The past few days the mornings have been in the 40s and the highs are around 60. I hate cold weather so living here is going to be a challenge this winter.

In terms of my apartment, everything has come together nicely. I still have several things I want to buy (mainly decor) and have a few more pictures to hang. But for the most part it's starting to feel like "home." I've posted a few pictures below.

Tomorrow will be my first day on the road in the new territory. I'm excited!... and just a little nervous. I know this new position will be more challenging, more work and much more time consuming but I'm excited to start the next step in my career!

Living Room
Dining, Kitchen, Desk
Closet! That fits everything!
Wonderful shower/tub

It's been a while since I've been on this thing. A lot has happened in the 2 months I've been in St. Louis. But no reason to bore anyone with that. What's going on now?

I'm moving. Again. For the fourth time this year.

Professional I'm super excited about taking the next step in my career! I'll be working with one of the top reps. I know I'll learn a lot from him that will better and continue my career.

But personally, I DO NOT want to move. I L.O.V.E. Saint Louis. And more than that, I love the friends I've made here! I've shed countless tears over this and I know I'll continue to for weeks.... or months.

So, next Monday I'll be heading east. 601.25 miles later I'll be in Asheville, NC. I pray my time there is as wonderful as my time in Saint Louis has been.

The beginning

In less than a month I'll be packing up my bags life and moving.

Anxious, excited, nervous, happy, worried, calm, hopeful, impatient,

Just a few of the hundreds of adjectives that describe how I feel at this moment. The parents and I are heading up there the week of the 19th to find an apartment for me to call home. For at least a yearish.
