I Quit!

...not this blog, although it might seem like it since this is my first post of 2014. In early December I wrote up my first real resignation letter to quit my day job, and have since been transitioning out of my position. I don't think I ever mentioned where I worked here just because I liked to keep this my "happy place", but I was working for a high end grocery chain helping to make things pretty and consistent in their bakery department. Like most jobs it had its highs and lows, and I am happy to say I bowed out at the right time. It felt liberating to sign that letter, and now I am working on seeing some of my dreams realized.

How have we been filling our time since I started to step away from the workforce?

Taking down snowflakes and other wintery decor as I think we have enough outside on the ground.
Spending some down time with Ori and the flu. Probably the sickest I have been in years, and am so thankful it is over.
Taking the kids to the Lunar New Year Parade in Chinatown complete with lion dances and confetti everywhere. Gong Hey Fat Choy!

Oh congratulations!! Seemed like that job was sucking you dry - way to go! It's hard to step away but so liberating too.
