Hello all! The last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind, so I hope you’ll forgive the lack of posting. I thought I’d do a little recap of what’s been going on.
In my five and a half years of working at The Larko Group, I have never been busier. This makes sense considering the United States’ unemployment rate fell to 3.6%, the lowest since 1969. The amount of searches we have received has been extensive and certainly keeps me on my toes and inclined to put in long hours to ensure I’m not missing any potential candidate/client matches.
In addition to that, I flew to Indianapolis for the wedding of my sorority sister, Kira, who looked stunning on her special day and broke it down, as she’s known to do, on the dance floor. She’s a total inspiration to me; not only is she a lawyer, but she teaches Pure Barre on the side! Incredible. It was lovely to see other friends from Indiana University and catch up on their lives. I was also reunited with my best friend, Britt, which is always a highlight! She has been busy moving into a beautiful new home and I can’t wait to visit her.
Earlier this week, I turned 30. The day before, I had a lovely dinner with my mom and essentially a secondary mom, Monica, over at Campagnola in Evanston. We discussed their recent trip to Tanzania, reminisced on days of yore, and enjoyed phenomenal Italian food and wine.
The next day on my actual birthday, I felt showered with love from so many directions: family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, etc., from dusk until dawn. It was frankly the best birthday I have ever had and I could not be more enthusiastic to take on another decade.
Currently, I’m at home, taking the day off to accomplish some errands, preparations for my birthday party tomorrow, get a massage (much needed!), and just do the things I love i.e. blogging, reading, and going to the gym. Right now, I’m reading Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s difficult to put down. I suspect I’ll finish it over the weekend.
I suspect I will be able to post more regularly after this week of birthday festivities have concluded. I do have an exciting interview post in the pipeline, so please stay tuned for that. Happy Fall, all! Enjoy the sweater weather.
