I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far. A lot has happened since I saw you last. First of all, I'm getting married! I guess someone had to be the first of our group to take the plunge.
As you all know, Ole Miss is very near and dear to my heart. Mason did a great job incorporating the town that we met with our special day. Now, I am super stressed out and confused about what I need to be doing to get ready for the big day. Who knew that planning a wedding would be so hard?? Although we don't have a date nailed down yet, it looks like we will be getting married next June!
Last week, we drove down to Orlando to go to Disney World and Universal Studios for one last celebration before my internship officially began. We had a great time (as expected), but I think the parks tripled in size since the last time I visited. It has taken me a few days to work out the soreness in my legs and feet, but I don't want to blame the pain on being out-of-shape or getting older. So, if you don't mind, let's just say the parks got bigger.
This summer, I am interning at Mainspace Office Solutions in Hattiesburg, MS, which is a commercial furniture dealership. I know a few of you attended the Lunch-and-Learn hosted by Mainspace earlier in the spring, so you probably had the chance to personally meet my boss, Jason Richards. We have a few projects that we are working on this summer for USM, so thankfully I will spend a fair amount of time in my comfort zone.
Right now, Jason and I are the only two people working at the company. His wife, Lauren, will be joining us this week as the company's marketing rep. I can't wait for her to come on board! Jason has told me that he wants me to work with her in addition to working on interior design projects so I can use some of my marketing skills, as well. Because of this, I think that Mainspace is a great learning experience for me, and I can't wait to continue learning the ins and outs of the commercial furniture world!
Well, I think that's enough for today! See y'all in a couple days. Same place, same time!
