Hello everyone! It's Liana, checking in with a short, sweet, and to-the-point blog post. Many of you who read the blog, follow our page, and like our posts on Instagram, are good friends or family and have seen this announcement. However, for those of you who don't know, or aren't my friend on facebook, here we go! (well, after a little bit of backstory!)
Back at the beginning of November, I was looking for something new. This year has been rough, especially career wise (not talking about K&L Photography!). I work several jobs to make ends meet, and I wasn't feeling very challenged/fulfilled with them. As many of you know, I love to travel, and the National Parks hold a special place in my heart. I regularly check Xanterra's website (a hospitality company that operates out of several national parks) for anything that I may be qualified for. Well, a posting from October was up for the Grand Canyon, a retail associate (full time, with benefits). I thought, "Well, what the hell. Let's go ahead and apply and see what happens." So I went ahead and applied! A week later, I received an email for a phone interview. After that interview, I waited a week to hear back. The Monday before Thanksgiving, I received the job offer! Of course, I weighed this for a while, and spoke to Katie about it before moving forward with the acceptance email.
All in all, what does this mean? This means that in January, I will be moving to The Grand Canyon for six months! Why only six months you ask? Well, because I have a lot of family and friends back here, and of course my lovely puppies! I can't leave them for too long. I decided that six months was the perfect amount of time to decide if this is something that I would consider doing full-time. I'm very excited to start this adventure, and you can bet there will be a lot of posts involving my travels! Don't worry though, this is not going to take away from the business. Katie and I will still be running the business, blogging every week, and taking photo sessions! Please wish me well with this new adventure!
