So today is the day…my last day before maternity leave. CRAZINESS.
I wanted to take a moment to just say thank you. So many people have reached out to say goodbye and to wish me and the little one luck. I have been so fortunate to work with some amazing people and having one of the best jobs out there. To anyone who has ever listened to a show or a read a blog…thank you.
This is a really weird feeling for me as I am sure many have experienced in the past. I have been working full-time in radio since graduating from college in 2007. Every day waking up and coming in and doing some variation of the same thing.
I have worked early mornings, late nights, over nights, afternoons and mid morning shifts. I have had great jobs and not so great jobs. I have gone from not being able to afford groceries because following your dream sometimes doesn’t make the most money…to being able to start this next journey.
Of course I am so excited to meet my baby girl…how could I not be. This tiny being has grown into a mini me and she will be here in 3 weeks (maybe sooner or later depending on her schedule). I was unsure if I would be able to have kids and then…here we are. How could I not be excited for that?
There is also a part of me that I am saying goodbye too. The radio me. The part of me that has been the main me for so long. I know it is for a year and I will be back before I know it. It’s just scary. Going from something that I know very well to something I am clueless about. It will be an exciting adventure and I am so lucky for the support I have.
I have to say thank you my co workers who have been so supportive through so much. I have been with the company for 7 years and have had the pleasure to work with some amazing people.
This is not goodbye – just a see ya later!
