Weekly weekend wrap-up: Jobs and battlefields

If you follow me on Instagram (@alifelesstraveled) then you already know that Friday afternoon I was offered a job after almost 3 months of searching. I will be working for a health services non-profit in the Northern Virginia area. The best part is that I start work after Labor Day, which I can enjoy my time with my parents for my birthday weekend. Sometimes things just work out in the best way. They get into town on Wednesday afternoon and I can't wait to show them around DC. Since they have been here a few times in the last few years for my dad's conferences I am trying to find things/places that are new to them.

Apparently we moved to Virginia when it is having the coolest summer weather in years, which coming from Central Florida where summers are brutal and humid, is a welcome change for us. This means we have been trying to spend our weekends outside and exploring the area. Sunday we hit up 2  civil war battlefields about an hour away in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania. I like that we are able to take Kavalier with us to the parks, he always comes back home all tuckered out from all the walking.


  1. I missed that announcement on Insta! Congrats!! I know you were so in the dumps about it. It seems like that's how it always works. Just when you start to lose hope something good finally happens.

  2. Congrats on your new job!! That has got to be a huge relief! I am still trying to get my situation sorted out.

  3. Congratulations on the new job! :) That's great!

  4. Congrats!!! That is awesome that they gave you until Labor Day to start and you get to enjoy your time off!! Hope you had a great Birthday!
