As you read on Tuesday in Laurel's eloquent post, "times they are a-changin'".
When I figured out that we had been writing this blog for a little over six years, I was amazed! I knew it had been going for a while, but I had no idea it was SIX years. I've enjoyed sharing the fun stories, the cute animal videos, and the celebrity stories.
But I have really appreciated being able to share my personal stories with you. It has been an honor to share many of my personal griefs, cat stories, emotional decision-making issues, and so much more. To receive your input and feedback has been invaluable. And getting your personal comments and emails has meant so much. I know you've all gotten to know my kitties too. Henry, Ben, and Oscar never knew they would be "famous" blog kitties!
I am also moving on from my work with Laurel and World by the Tail to other things. Not sure where my path will take me just yet. But, when I started working with Laurel almost 11 years ago, I didn't know where that path would take me either! I certainly didn't expect it to lead me where it has, and I'm sure grateful that I have had this opportunity.
From my start as the administrative assistant for Argus at CSU in our one little office, to moving into more responsibility as their communications coordinator in the new wing and offices, and then moving along with Laurel and Debby to working for World by the Tail and learning all of this website and social media "stuff", it's been an amazing decade! I've been very lucky to have such amazing mentors and friends.
I know that Laurel and I are both experiencing some grief along with these changes. Even as we both move on to other things, we'll miss our working relationship. And I know that I will miss our blog, and all of you too.
Be well my friends! If any of you would like to stay in touch with me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (for a little longer). I'd love to hear from you.
