365 days ago I was 15 weeks pregnant and was laid off from my job of nearly 5 years. I was nervous, somehow excited and hopeful for new changes.
6 days ago I accepted a position at the YWCA- Wausau as the Marketing/Communications & Fundraising Director. I am so excited! It's as if the position were tailor made for me. I am thrilled to be working for an organization that shares similar goals and philosophies that I do. I start Sept. 7.
I feel very blessed to have found a job that I'm excited about. It's really tough out there.
It has been a whirlwind year. Spending loads of time with Bennet and Scout. Welcoming Ellie to the world and our family. Trying to keep ends meeting. Nick working extra hard to make that happen. Enjoying lazy days. Adapting to being a SAHM for the first time.
I have loved being home with Ellie for the first 7 months of her life. I only had 6 weeks with the big girls and have been spoiled. I will always look back on my year of unemployment with mixed emotions but am ready for the next challenge.
