Wow. In the last week and a half, my life has turned completely upside-down...in the best way possible.
I absolutely LOVE my new job.
I love going to the shop in the morning.
I love being surrounded by amazingly beautiful dresses all day long.
I love everyone who works with me.
I love being paid to read wedding magazines.
I love little tasks like folding veils, organizing purchase orders, and studying the dress names.
I love when a group of women come into the shop, and you can immediately tell which one is the bride because of the size of the smile on her face.
I love listening to my colleagues and the dress designers talk about the fabrics, and knowing that soon I'll know almost as much as they do about taffeta, organza, silk, satin, charmeuse, alencon lace, chantilly lace, chiffon, and tulle.
I love that all of a sudden, I work in fashion.
I love that I get to dress up and look pretty every day.
I love the look on a bride's face when you place a veil on her head for the first time.
I love how everyone has an immense amount of confidence in me and my ability to be great at this job.
I love hearing about the bride's fiance and watching her face light up when she talks about him.
I love that, for the first time in my adult life, I don't sit in front of a computer all day long.
I love hearing the words, "I LOVE THIS DRESS."
