Hey y'all! It's hard to believe it's been over seven months since I've last written a blog post. So much has happened since October. Let's catch up!
In November, I was accepted to the University of North Georgia for the Fall 2016 semester and I couldn't be more grateful or excited. I am now officially enrolled as a Night Hawk in the Corps of Cadets and will begin my journey in Dahlonega this August.
In February, I graduated from AIT at Ft. Gordon. I became an official American soldier and claimed the title 25B, Information Technology Specialist. I headed back home on February 10 to re-start my life as a civilian.
Upon returning home, I got a job as a barista at Starbucks. I have fallen in love with the people and culture of Starbucks and couldn't be happier. Oh, and now I know all the best additions and modifications to my favorite drinks-- it's a win-win!
I'm in a really great place right now, and I'm so thankful to be where I am, doing what I do. Now that I am back to a regular lifestyle, I am anxious to return to the world of blogging and share my ideas with the world. I'm grateful to have been able to do that via Stay Fabulous for the last four years and I have come such a long way from the undecided sophomore in high school who started this blog as a completely different outlet one summer afternoon. I have met so many inspiring people and have made so many unforgettable connections. Getting emails and comments from all of y'all over the years and seeing the impressions that I made brought me such joy. It has been a blessing to say the least.
That being said, blogging is definitely not something I want to give up. In fact, I want to make it an even larger part of my life. Stay Fabulous has been great to me, but I'm ready for a fresh start.
On May 5, I'll be launching my new blog: Lilly & Lattes. It will have content very similar to that posted on Stay Fabulous, with a little more of a personal touch. I've been working hard to make it into something great, and I hope you'll consider reading along as I continue my journey.
Thank you again to everyone who has read Stay Fabulous over the years. I know some of the content, especially the tutorials, is still very frequently referenced. For that reason, I'll be leaving Stay Fabulous up until further notice. You can still contact me with the email address posted on the contact page, and I'll still do my best to help with any tutorial or general questions.
See y'all May 5 on Lilly & Lattes and as always, stay fabulous!
