Much Needed Break

When I found out that some friends of mine from work would be leaving, I was overcome with both joy and sadness.  I’m so happy they’ll be moving on in their careers, but bummed that I won’t get to see them at work anymore.  That’s the nature of the biz!  It’s common for someone to […]
