As most of you know, Reagan recently accepted an internship with Senator Mike Lee working in his Washington D.C. office. He will be working in the press office with his Director of Communications. A little over a month ago, Reagan had the opportunity to go to D.C. for a PR conference. He was able to meet Mike Lee’s Director of Communications and chat with him. Reagan can’t wait to work by his side and learn from him! It is a 4 month internship so we will be gone from January-April.
When we found out he got the internship, I was a little hesitant about it. Mainly because I am a stress-case. :) I worry about all of the details and Reagan doesn’t so it was up to me to figure it out. Luckily, I know a couple of people out there so I was able to connect with them and they were a HUGE help. Thinking back over the past month while we have been figuring it out, I couldn’t help but feel super happy and grateful. There have been so many amazing people that were so willing to help us out and everything has fallen right into place. We found a furnished apartment in a nice area just a few minutes away from the metro. The landlord was totally fine with the 4 month lease. My work is letting me work remotely for the 4 months. We sold our 2nd car the day we put it up for sale. Our current landlord let us get out of our lease 6 months early with no penalty. Our families are letting us store all of our stuff at their place. And to top it off my good friend that I’ve known since we were babies (Katelynn Sumko) will be living right above us – it will be so nice to have a little part of home right there with me.
Since everything fell into place so perfectly, it made me feel so much better about the decision to go for it! We are SO excited to experience D.C. and for this little adventure! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am so so proud of Reagan. I have no doubt that he will be a wonderful asset to Mike Lee’s team. Since I will be working from home, I told Reagan that we need to have plans each weekend so I have something to look forward to and so that we can take full advantage of where we are. We’ve already started making our bucket list (New York is at the top). Please tell us… what do we need to experience??
