Step into My Office

I said that to Matt this morning while sitting on our couch. It was a bit surreal knowing that I am officially a freelance travel writer, blogger and author (although my books have yet to be published).

I ended up wrapping up things at my old job yesterday so they could set up my desk for a new member of the team starting on Monday. So my last day was a day earlier than anticipated (not that I’m complaining). Saying goodbye to everyone was bittersweet. As excited as I am to be embarking on this journey and chasing my dream, I’ll miss the great people I worked with at the bank. Everyone seemed genuinely sad I was leaving which made me feel I made a difference in the short time I was there.

I’m horrible at goodbyes, but I made my rounds and had a final happy hour with a couple of the women I worked with (thanks Elizabeth and Maria!). We did a happy hour with my team in Corporate Communications a day earlier and I was able to set up lunches and happy hours with some of the other teammates I worked with over the past couple of weeks. It’s been happy hour central around here lately.

After Holy Thursday mass last night, Matt raised a toast to me and my new career. It’s amazing to have a husband who is so supportive of my dreams and truly believes in my ability to turn this into a career.

Champagne and cherries transformed into an oil painting with my new Brushstroke app.

So, today is the first day of my new career. To quote one of my favorite musicals, Wicked, “I couldn’t be happier!”
