Welcome to the Hawthorne Life! So much has happened since I started this blog as a way to keep up with my family in college! I've graduated, landed an amazing job, and am now married. I have a job working in marketing for a small liberal arts college after two and a half fun years in the hospitality industry working with my city of Jackson, Mississippi in marketing and social media. It's been a charmed life. I've been very lucky, even getting the chance to bring Andrew Zimmern to town and meet him. Life is good! Now, we own a house and we're having fun.
