I work for my county's tourism office. We promote events, accommodations, recreations and restaurants for Sussex County through our website and other advertisements. I've been working on this website by adding events to the event calendar, adding buttons to the homepage and generally updating content.
Working in Marketing is totally different than working in finance. My new boss is encouraging me to dig into my passions and bring them out in the workplace. For example, we have talked about featuring a "Restaurant of the Week" on the homepage.
That "Come to the Culinary Coast" button is a new campaign designed to promote restaurants in our area, therefore increasing tourism. I have a feeling this campaign will become my biggest project and I can't wait to see how it all plays out. This summer, we want to focus on farm-to-table restaurants. There are tons of restaurants who work with our local farmers and cook with their fresh produce.

Delaware is kind of beautiful, huh?
Basically, I love the work and the people I work with. It's one big, huge blessing for Michael and I both.

This transition has kept me very busy. Plus I've been packing, getting my bridesmaids dress hemmed, shopping and getting ready for this weekend in Arkansas to see those 2 get married. I fly out on Thursday and come back on Sunday. When I come back, food blog mania will continue.
I have so missed calmly stirring a bowl of cake batter... piping frosting on cupcakes... the smell of hot cookies in my kitchen... chopping up fresh veggies and garlic cloves...
See you soon, dear friends.
