A Fond Farewell…

When I started at Graco nearly three years ago, I never realized that I wouldn’t just be joining a company, I would be joining a family.

It makes it that much harder to have to say goodbye.

I’m sad to say that today is my last day at Graco, and while I’m excited for what’s ahead for me, there are so many things, mostly people, that will be missed.

I will miss the team. This group is smart, witty and fun. They are more passionate about the work they do than you could ever wish for and I’m grateful for the years I have spent with them. So, don’t worry, you’re in good hands. :)

I will miss the daily joys of pregnancies and births. I will never get over the excitement of “baby’s firsts,” new additions or much needed advice.

I will miss the pictures. Who wouldn’t miss getting to see adorable, smiling babies all day long!?

I will miss the moments. The miracle of tiny fingers & toes has given me a daily perspective on the things that really matter in life.

And mostly, I will miss all of you. Thank you for reading, commenting, questioning and cheering us on. This really is a community, and a family. I am proud to have been a part of it.

Thank you all for the joys, the pictures, the moments and the love – and keep it coming! I will be here on the sidelines reading, commenting & cheering you on.

I hope you’ll stay in touch and I wish you all the best!

    Kelly, I’m so sad to see you leave (reading this just brought it home and has me feeling a little teary!)…. but I’m heartened to know that social media means that this community can continue! Stay connected – we’re all just a tweet, post or check-in away :) Love you, lady!!
