A Bittersweet Day: Here's To A New Chapter

Hello lovelies!

As you can see from the title of this post, today was a bittersweet day for me. I have accepted a new position within my company and today I said goodbye to my co-workers from past three years. :(

I honestly didn't think it was going to be hard as it was-- but I didn't enjoy it one bit. I have made some of the most amazing friendships, ones that have become a huge part of my every day life! A couple of them have even become some of my BEST friends if I'm being honest. They know the good and the bad about me, and they've never left my side. They've gotten me through some hard times and I couldn't be more thankful. And although I know I will still talk to them all the time... it won't be the same as getting to see them every day!

One of my co-workers told me yesterday morning as we were coming in to work: "It's going to be so weird pulling in the parking lot and not seeing your car first thing!" Haha!

I've made so many memories the past three years--whether it be from our annual Hot Dog cook-outs, Snow-Cone Days, Ice-Cream Bars or Chili Cook-Offs. The only definition I can think of when it comes to U-Pack is... family. Getting to start my U-Pack journey off in the Quality department really gave me the chance to get to know almost everyone-- both sales and operations! And spending the last year in operations, I've gotten to know that side on a different level.

Anyways, all of this to say... As happy as I am for my new job and to meet new people, I will really miss my U-Pack family! One of my co-workers said something and it kind of stuck with me... "Change is always uncomfortable at first but everything ALWAYS turns out for the better in the end." I'm sticking to that! <3

I tried to get some pictures throughout the week... I wish I would have gotten more but I totally failed. Ha! I thought I'd go ahead and share some of them anyways, along with a couple sweet going away gifts I got today... :)

I came in this morning to flowers and a card on my desk... and also got my favorite flavor of kickstart brought to me! <3

First up, I wanna say how much I love this lady right here! I've been with Momma Twana since the beginning and we have been through a lot together... Especially a lot of change the last year! So thankful for her!

Next up, my "ride or die" crew... LOL! These were the first people that I sat by when I moved to operations and they helped me SO much as I learned everything. Jamie, Scott and Clark were so much fun to sit by and we had some great times!
I'll miss my work bestie! :( 

One of my best friends (Josh) and I drinking our last Kickstart together for a while! Haha! I clearly wasn't ready when he was smiling for the picture but oh well. This is pretty much us at all times! (Shout out to Alex, another one of my best friends (who I didn't get a picture with sadly) for taking these pictures!
And last but not least, the crew I've had the pleasure of sitting by for the last two months. Although we didn't get as much time to get to know each other, they have been a blast to sit by!

Love always,
Charity
XOXO
