|Notice my play on words there? Clever eh?|
Well the day is finally here, my last day of work. And apparently it’s also National Pink Day? I don’t know how I didn’t know this before now, but in honor of this special occassion I’ve decided to link up with Preppy Pink Lilly Lover for Pink and Green Thursday! I suppose it’s rather fitting that I would make my exit from work today, because I think that the color pink is something that everyone from my office is definitely going to remember me by. As you can see in the picture above, my little cube is filled with an overabundance of pinkness. (I even changed the settings in the software we use to make it pink!) I just feel like a little pink can brighten up even the most depressing spaces, and it always brings a smile to my face.
Today is definitely bittersweet for me. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have this job because it’s helped me discover that recruiting is something I really do enjoy. When we first moved to South Carolina, I was stressed and confused and didn’t know what I was going to do for work, as my degree is so broad and I have lot of different interests. However, my time here demonstrated God’s providence at work because everything really does happen for a reason, and I know that it was meant to be that I serendipitously stumbled into this job last summer. As I close this chapter and move into the next phase of my life, the future is still very much unknown. However, I’m nearly as worried as I was at this time last year because I know that everything is going to work out like it’s supposed to. I feel like this time down in South Carolina has really strengthened my faith and I know Lord is going to keep providing in Colorado or wherever life takes us.
However, that doesn’t make it any easier to leave the wonderful friends that I’ve made at work. My current office is small and it’s comprised of a cast of a definite cast of characters. I would describe it as somewhat…relaxed…and unorthodox…and hilarious. Every day there is always something crazy that happens that makes me laugh, and I’m really going to miss the completely outlandish humor and chaos that I’ve grown accustomed to. I’m definitely going to miss all the fun times I’ve had and I’ve appreciated the “Southern” hospitality of everyone here in the office making me feel welcome in Greenville.
Last night, I was fortunate to have a little “going-away” dinner with some of my lovely girlfriends (Amy, Meredith, and Wendi) from work and it was really sweet to go out and have one final meal with them. (Btw we ate at Brown Street Club in downtown Greenville, and while it wasn’t on my list because I hadn’t been there before, it was delish!) I have greatly enjoyed getting to know them both at work and hanging out with them outside of work as well. I’m pretty sure that we have all talked about every topic under the sun, and they are just a really fun group of ladies to be around. I’m really going to miss the 3 of them in Colorado, and I’m so thankful for their friendship over the past year 🙂
