Feeling the Love…Another Step Towards Retirement! [Pt.2]

flowers-at-home

It’s that time of year when spring shimmies into summer and celebrates its beautiful self with parties, proms, weddings, graduations and retirement celebrations. Beginnings and endings of all kinds…

The end of the school year marks the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new one for many of us. For me, as a student, as a teacher, and later a school psychologist, the school year has been the rhythm of my entire life. No end of the school year has felt more bittersweet than this one, especially as I look towards retirement in July.

School is out for summer, and I am saying my goodbyes to students and many of our beloved staff. I still have another week and 1/2 to tie up the loose ends and get the summer program started, yet the end of my career in education is so clearly in sight.

I threw my annual end-of-year party for my teams at the house on Thursday evening. Though I initially protested a big party, Scott zhushed it up to be a fantastic retirement celebration for me, to boot!  At this place in time, I am feeling the love from friends, colleagues, team members as well as the host of the party who sang me a couple of special tunes. I’ll be sharing more on that special day soon.

The last month here has truly been a blur…and I’m still processing it all. There will be time for that, and I look forward to sharing more of this chapter on the blog.

For now, I’ve been invited to attend Brian Culbertson’s Napa Valley Jazz Getaway for Style*Mind*Chic Life. Scott and I are packing up for a couple of days in wine country. The timing is perfect (and so is the weather)! Tickets are still available for certain events here. Let me know if you are going. I would love to connect!

Despite the busy schedule, I wanted to stop in to wish you a wonderful weekend. I hope you are feeling the love where you are today.

Hi Heather,
I have had you in my thoughts so often as I see the posts come in about your retirement, and your upcoming trip to Italy. I am so happy for you. I think this is truly such a wonderful new stage in your life. You will be able to focus on your writing, and your blog shows how much you enjoy this part of your life. Although I am not able to visit very often now, I want you to know that I will always come back and visit your blog, and catch up with your life adventures. I’ve never met you Heather, but you and your blog will always be part of my day. xx Nancy
