I am closing out 2011, and starting 2012 with some big changes. Only a couple of weeks into 2012 I will be leaving the employer that I have worked for during all of my career. It is a bittersweet move. I am very excited for the new opportunity, but sad to leave the people I have grown close to and to leave an employer who has been very good to me.
I spent a lot of time today going through all of the emails that I had stashed in my “personal” file at my work address. I enjoyed reading the announcements of pregnancies and engagements from some of my closest friends, and I admittedly fought back tears while I read my grandmother’s broken writing lamenting how much she wished we were closer so she could cuddle my baby.
Lots of memories of the good and the bad that have transpired over the last eight years and I am thankful to be taking those memories with me on my next adventure.
