Thankful, always

Well, today is the day. My last day as a member of the gainfully employed. Bittersweet? Definitely. I’m beyond sad to be leaving a workplace I loved, but I’m also excited to get to spend time at home with Della. I think these next couple months with just her before the new baby comes will […]
