And of course yesterday was my last day at work. I've worked there since June 30, 1997. There aren't many people in my office who have been there longer. While it's definitely time for me to make a change, it was also bittersweet. We had a happy hour last night and by the end, when I had to say good night to John, who hired me and became a friend, and Kendra, whom I hired almost 15 years ago and is now one of my very best friends, I couldn't stop the tears. (Plus Kendra slipped a note in my purse and when I found it later I cried all over again.) Luckily Aaron was there, both to let me cry on his shoulder and to drive me home (I MAY have had too much sauvignon blanc).
|I tried to get these taken before I started crying, but was unsuccessful.|
So excited for you going forward, but I know it was hard to leave.
It's a season of change for you.
Time for new adventures! I'm glad you did a proper Sayonara with your coworkers, so many people don't do that.ReplyDelete

Awww- I bet this week was definitely emotionally draining, but what great friends/coworkers/memories you have too!! I'm glad you guys got to have a fun last day party! Cheers to NEW, exciting stuff though :)ReplyDelete
When I left my job after 12 years leaving my work friends was the hardest part. I still miss seeing them everyday 6 months later.ReplyDelete
