This month Ted and I celebrate our 1st anniversary. It feels like forever sometimes, and other times it feels like it went so quickly. To recap, in our first year of marriage, we bought a house, we both started new roles at work, and we lost my mom.
We’ll come back to mom in a minute but I did want to say that we have a trip planned to the Berkshires and we’re also headed to Italy in June – Rome, Florence, & Venice. I can’t wait to experience it with Ted!
This will be our first Mother’s Day without mom. It’s pretty painful to think about so I just keep plugging away, but I’m happy that we’ll have a group gathering on Sunday at our house – Ted, my in laws, my dad, my brother, my sister in law, and my brother’s in laws. We’ll be surrounded by love. The kids will be with their mom, though they were sorry to miss my brother’s birthday (also on Sunday).
My job has been good. I have a new boss who started today. I was the only one from my old team who moved over & at first I was sad, but then it was leaked to me that they knew I’d be a good match for him & that they could count on me to acclimate him. I take it as a compliment. I closed a $250,000 gift this week with a donor I’d been warming up for the last 2 years. That was a nice feather in my cap!
I got my booster today. I’ve been experiencing very bad vertigo but I hope it improves soon.
That’s all for now. 💕
