April Roundup!

I feel like I have been waiting forever to put my April summary up on here. In my last monthly round up, I mentioned that I was feeling more accomplished and motivated and I hoped that my attitude would follow through in the months to come. This month definitely allowed me to keep that mentality in place. So many good things happened, particularly in terms of my job search (!!!). It just goes to show that patience really is a virtue and sometimes all you need is to sit tight, stay positive and pray for the best.

Started off the month reuniting with my favorite coworker at our old stomping grounds at Just Sweet. // Went into a Uniqlo pop-up shop and ended up getting our picture taken. // Neon nails and Emergen-C in my then favorite water bottle. It smells weird now.. : ( // Thrifted some awesome stuff, including a 35mm camera with a 50mm lens for $20!

Got the opportunity to photograph the NY Creative Interns #FindPassion conference and received this “award” at the volunteer meeting! Lolol, first time multiple Stephanie’s in one room worked in my favor! // At the actual #FindPassion conference, I got my first business cards! Design courtesy of Maria. < 3 // Going away brunch in the city with complimentary mimosas and screwdrivers for Emily. // Said brunch with these biddies. : )

So there it is. April was a lot of fun and super encouraging. I feel super blessed with everything that’s happened last month, both pictured and not. And I know I probably say this every month, but with my birthday, EDC, and my 4 year anniversary (what!?) coming up in May, I honestly can not wait to see what this month and beyond has in store!
