I look up to my husband in so many ways.
Earlier this evening I was in Bountiful helping Jesse, his brother Kyller, and their friend Adam with a huge window display project they have been working on for a company in downtown Salt Lake. I am not allowed to say what it is since they signed a disclosure. However, if you are in Salt Lake City for black Friday, you might wanna hang around the City Creek area...that's all I'm gonna say. :)
I took this photo earlier tonight
Anyways, on my way back home, I drove in silence. I was thinking about Jesse and all the wonderful things he has done for me since we met. One of my most precious memories to date is the day he took me on a looong long drive last month. I was having a really rough day and dealing with some depression due to still not finding a job. I couldn't stop crying and just felt so....lame. :( Why couldn't I find a job? I hadn't left our apt. in 4 days and really didn't care about a whole lot. Sooo, Jesse came in the bedroom, layed down next to me, held me in his arms and said "I'm taking you out to lunch, and then for a ride". I pulled on a sweater and put on a hat and away we drove. First, we went to Ruth's diner which is in Emigration Canyon. Afterwards we continued driving... & drove for over an hour till we came to a very secluded lake. It was so peaceful. There was a huge rock that we layed our blanket down next to.
I was starting to feel better.
I love this photo of Jesse, and plan to enlarge it for his office someday.
While on that rock, he played his harmonica for me...
We lapped in the sun, and Jesse talked to me about needing to have faith. Needing to believe that the right job for me is out there, and that God [or whomever you dear reader believes in] has not forgotten about me...this can be a hard thing to believe sometimes. It is so important in a relationship to never have both partners be in the slums. Otherwise, who is going to bring the other out? My old boss Allison told me this one time. It is so true. The drive back down was a lot prettier than on the way up...I kept thinking about the story of Rip Van Winkel and how much the scenery reminded me of that book.
I eventually got out of my sadness...and tried working harder at trusting and believing that there is a job out there which is specifically tailored for me.
Wednesday, Jesse brought me home a money tree as a gift for landing a job I wanted so bad.
Thank you sweetie, I love you soo so much!
On Monday, I officially start working at Uppercase Living doing graphic design & illustration! Want to know the best part about this job? The Creative Director of this company is my very favorite old boss Allison Dayton !!! If you've followed my blog, you know who I am talking about and how much I adore her! What's even better is how much she adores her staff and all the employees there! This makes me even more excited to start work on Monday. A huuuuge difference compared to my last job. It is sooo funny how things work out. I interviewed with some pretty great companies for some really great jobs, and was so sad every time I didn't hear back...but now none of that matters. I am looking forward to being happy at work again, just like when working for Allison!
Here is a video [Allison is the one making the jewelry and behind the scenes in the photoshoot's] for Uppercase Living's new line of jewelry U Blume that she designed. This video gives me chills and makes me teary-eyed every time I watch it because the song matches exactly how I felt every day when working for Allison...
