Yes, 2023 marked a major lifestyle change for us, and so far, it has been a wonderful! Long weekends, business trips, casual lunches have all been lovely additions to my new routine. How wild to think that I can get sick without worrying about lesson plans or refreshing Subfinder to see if anyone picked up the job! Not gonna lie: I DO miss teaching. I miss the students, I miss certain lessons and "aha" moments, and most of all, I miss my colleagues. But they say you know when the time is right, and this was it for me.
Retirement festivities dominate my memories of this eventful year, but there were vacations and road trips, thrilling sports moments, and just good old-fashioned family times, too. Since this blog acts as my personal scrapbook, I'm using this space to document the highlights of 2023.
