News + Highlights

filed under:

Best Friday! I got out for summer break on Wednesday so my main teacher perk is in full swing! I have a few pieces of exciting news to share… next year, I’ll be moving from teaching second grade to teaching kindergarten. I can’t wait to spend my days with even younger little ones! I’m also excited to share that I’ll be traveling a lot this summer to New York City, the Hamptons, Aspen, Vietnam, Bali, Jackson Hole, and Charleston. I’d be touched to have you following along with everything on here, on Instagram, and now on Snapchat (@ jilliana5590). Speaking of Charleston, I had the best time there last weekend on my impromptu trip. My last exciting piece of news happens to involve yours truly in Charleston! Stay tuned for next Wednesday’s post as I’ll be sharing something about Charleston that has had me over the moon all week. Happy weekend loves! I’m off to Laguna Beach for a few days! Thanks for reading my news + highlights from the week are below.
