Hi! Welcome to the Nearly to Newly blog. My name is Cammi and I’m very excited you stopped by. I started this blog as an outlet for my lack of life direction. OK – that might be a bit dramatic, but it’s pretty true. I’m a 20-something recent newlywed who still feels like she’s trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. Currently I work for a media agency, placing print advertisements for a large retailer but am discovering that’s not necessarily where my passion lies. For the past few years I’ve always wanted to open my own event planning business [still do], but fear and lack of experience are held me back, which is probably a good thing since my dreams have shifted after planning my wedding. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but man, was that stressful. It also taught me that I love my weekends and summers too much to give them up. I’ve set new life goals now – I wonder if they’ll change every few years? I’ve always loved writing, photography, reading, graphic design, home decorating, and recently, social media. That’s where this blog comes in. I want something to hold me accountable this year – make me share my interests with the world. So settle in to a comfy chair, grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa and read away!
A little more about me:
