We're Married! (life update)

Gilbert-585The Gilberts
It’s been 3+ months since our wedding and there are 3 things I can say for sure: 1) we miss having all of our friends and family in one place, 2) we miss the beautiful Charleston weather, and 3) we are absolutely loving married life! While the whole thing feels like a bit of a whirlwind (can you believe we got engaged only 1 year ago?!) we are so incredibly lucky for the adventure we’ve had over the last year ¬†and are thrilled to be exactly where we are today. We’ve been appreciating all of our “firsts” together, and look forward to many more over the next few months…and yes, we still get a little giddy whenever we get to call each other “my husband” & “my wife.”

The beginning of our marriage also marked the beginning of Brett’s new job, as CTO (Chief Technology Officer) of Kapow Events, an exciting new career chapter after being with his last company for 10 years! Now that the adjustment period is (mostly) over with, Brett is settled in and loving his new role. Though it’s quite a change of pace, a lot of hours, & challenging at times, it’s been a very exciting opportunity to be a part of something from the ground up (the company is only about 1 year old). Consider us both on the edge of our seats to see where Kapow goes & all they things they accomplish in 2013!

Still in the hunt for the right job, Kate is spending most of her time on volunteer work for HOBY, getting back into yoga, and doing a lot of cooking.

Fortunately the job market here looks very promising in general, but finding a position that Kate isn’t either over- or under-qualified for is a bit like threading a needle. Nonetheless, we know things will work out as they’re meant to, so we’re trying to be patient and not get discouraged. In the meantime, Kate is going to work on getting her thesis published as a journal article and try to spend some time making artwork.

Officially ‘The Gilberts’,
Brett and Kate
