Happiness at Arhaus

I have a confession to make...I've been keeping a secret from you guys. I have a new job and it's awesome. If you've been following me for awhile you know I moved back to Lexington from Indianapolis last May, and soon after I got a job at an apartment complex as a leasing specialist. The people I work with are great and the property I work for is beautiful, so it's not hard or unpleasant to be at, but I knew in my heart it's not really what I wanted to be doing. So one random day I got on career builder and stumbled upon a listing for a visual merchandiser for Arhaus Furniture. It seemed like the perfect blend of my experience from Anthropologie and my love for design and styling. The interview process was amazing, the store manager and regional manager were really excited to bring me on board, but there was one catch. It was only a part time position. Desperately wanting this creative outlet in my life I was determined to make it work. I mustered up the courage to talk to my manager at the apartments and asked if I could go part time so I could work the remaining time at Arhaus. And she totally went for it! She was so excited for this great opportunity for me even though she hated to be losing me in the office 5 days a week.

But it's been almost 2 months since I've been at Arhaus, and I seriously love it there. I didn't mean to keep it from you guys, but I wanted to make sure it was going to be a good fit before I shared it with the world. I'm only there 3 days a week but every day is totally different than the next and the day is over before I know it. Some days I'm painting, other days unloading new products, or rearranging things in the store when something has sold, or my newly found favorite task: creating floral arrangements! Last week my regional manager took me to a wholesale flower shop in Lexington and we spent the whole day creating floral statements for the whole store. I learned so many little floral tricks...I can't wait for next month when I get to do it all over again!

Using my Instagram app, I snapped a few pics of the arrangements I created for the store.
