Well, it’s been quite some time since I last posted and a lot has happened, so let’s get right to it. The big news came at the end of September when I moved to Miami with Joe! I had never been, but the experience so far has been super fun.
Compared to Portland’s cold and rainy winters (not to mention the dreaded Winter Vortex sweeping over most of the rest of the country), Miami has kept things warm and sunny almost every day. Best. Winter. Ever.
I was able to work a couple liquor promos and a fun NASCAR event in Homestead for Target. Soon after, I found a growing, all-natural, antioxidant beverage company looking for a market team lead in Miami. Bai is a 5-calorie beverage made with coffee fruit and comes in 10 delicious flavors!
I started with a training weekend in Baltimore and came back to leading road shows at Costco stores in South Florida. Bai is now in Target stores nationwide and I am the merchandiser for the Miami market.
While in Miami I’ve been able to try all sorts of great restaurants – you can check out my favorites on Yelp! I love the Peruvian food and Cuban cafecitos. The late night parties are everything you’ve read about and the beaches are fantastic.
With things settling down, I hope to keep my blog updated a little more frequently. In the meantime, enjoy some of my favorite snapshots from my time here in Miami (so far).
