Things Are Happening! Again....

So......we're moving again.

I know, I know.

It feels like I just wrote a blog post talking about us moving to Maryland and now I'm writing another one which makes me feel like we're a little nuts, but also a lot awesome.

This time, we're moving to Denver!

A couple of months ago, I found out my current position was going to be going away and I needed to start looking at other options within my current company. I shadowed a couple of the positions based out of DC and tried to figure out what would work best for me and my lifestyle. During that time, my manager mentioned that there was a job opening on her team at the corporate office in Denver. I had spent my first week with the company with that team, learning about our company culture and being trained and loved it. This team is amazing and really made me understand why everyone always says my company is so great to work for. After that week though, I went off to DC to work in my office alone with a team of people spread across the country. I didn't ever feel like I was getting the experience you're supposed to at this company and there were a lot of boring and lonely days. I knew if I ended up in one of the telecommuting positions in DC, that those days would continue even if I wouldn't be in the office alone, I'd be working alone most days and I wasn't thrilled about that.

I mentioned off-hand to Mike one day, "What if I applied for a job in corporate in Denver?" and his immediate response was a positive, "Why not?! That could be our next adventure." (The kind of partner everyone needs, I think." I mentioned my interest to my manager who was surprised, but happy. A couple days later I had my first over the phone interview for the position and about a week later I flew into Denver for several more interviews and to hang out with the team to see how I would fit in. Last Friday, I was offered the position and this Monday I accepted! It's all happened really fast, but I'm so excited to be a part of that team and for our next adventure to begin!

We're not sure of timelines yet because I'm still finishing up my duties in the DC office and we're trying to find an apartment in Denver, but most likely we will be there by sometime in March. I am, in true me fashion, freaking out and stressed beyond belief, but also super excited!

  2. Denver is amazing! An hour to the snow (and lots of it), mild winters, fantastic people and arts, a blend of music and food, wondrous shopping, a whole LODO to explore, and waterworld. OMG.
