Workin’ Hard for the Money

So, big news from Nashville…I got a job!  And, it might be the most exciting job ever, as I’ll be working at the Country Music Hall of Fame! Basically, this job is a dream come true: living in Music City, working in country music – what could be better? Also, I’ll be in the development office, and one of our responsibilities is VIP events, all of which I’ll be required to attend.  I mean, twist my arm.

Of course, after I accepted this job, I immediately felt convicted by all the worrying and doubting I did.  Maybe one day, I’ll learn to trust God before I see the end result, but as someone very wise pointed out to me, perhaps the greater lesson is that God is faithful even when we lack.

Anyway, I chose to celebrate this good news by wearing all black the day it became official.  I really don’t know why black said party to me – it rarely does. But, the sparkly tights said party for sure, and I built from there.  Also, these boots make me feel super Nashville.

The Country Music Hall of Fame is a “creative” environment, as you might expect, and full of trendy people…so, who knows how my style and therefore blog will evolve over the coming months. But I’m excited to find out, and glad you’re along for the ride with me.

Also, I’m excited to meet celebs, but that’s neither here nor there.

Black to Basics

In my professional life, I’ve developed a bit of a uniform for when I’m visiting schools/churches/”clients”. It’s not super clever or unique – I just wear black. But, maybe my reasons for doing so are a little more distinctive.

Of course, the primary reason I wear black is pretty obvious: it’s professional. Also, it’s really easy, and as we’ve established on multiple occasions, I’m the worst packer ever, so black reduces the effort I have to put into the work side of my suitcase (I really do divide it that way; work clothes in one half, fun clothes in the other).

But, I also love black because it allows me to mix and match all of my shoes and accessories and come up with different looks that suit whatever audience I’m meeting, while still showcasing my personality.

In this outfit, I was meeting with someone for work, so I wore jewelry from Rahab’s Rope, of course. The leopard print shoes are mine and I love them.
