Sorry it has been so long since posting. Geez! My life has been crazy . . . a wonderful crazy! A new job, an engagement, moving to Burbank . . . wow, I am feeling very blessed right now.
Training for my new job took three weeks. We started in Pittsburgh, at corporate headquarters. It was a really, really intense week. We spent the entire day learning how to give presentations, then we spent the evenings practicing. And yet we managed to find some time for fun too! Here is the view from my hotel room:My roommate Sharlett was fabulous! I just love her! She is the new rep in San Jose. My favorite Sharlett quote: "Some people are just bad at life." This is us at dinner on the last night:
Training Week #2 took place in Pismo Beach! I was sooooooo happy I could just stay at home. By this point I was completely exhausted. Pictures from this week to come soon.
Training Week #3 took us to Catalina Island. If you have never been there, I highly recommend a visit. Like a European village, Catalina is quaint and charming. There is a calm, mellow pace . . . except when it comes to training for a new job! My brain hit overload this week, but overall I had a great time.

Aaron proposed on the pier in Santa Barbara (site of our first date!). He surprised me by showing up in a bear suit and giving me a beautiful ring. I was shocked ... and very happy! Michael and Marissa were there to document the event. Wedding date should be early 2009.
