I published this in my newsletter earlier this month, but I know some of you missed it and you're thinking, "Wahhh is going on with Emily? Does she live in Leelanau now?" Yup! I do. See below for more info!
So long, Summer...hello cozy sweater, football Fridays and all the crock pot recipes.
I hope you all had an amazingly beautiful summer and were able to soak in the best that your state has to offer. Up here in Michigan, we bonfired, hiked, swam, and adventured our way through the most beautiful months and now it's Labor Day weekend. Social media is filled with all the updates about the end ofsummer and folks bidding farewell to the warm months, but I keep saying it--September is seriously a GREAT month. Warm water for swimming, cool evenings for sleeping--can't go wrong.
There have also been some pretty big changes over here--the major one is that I am relocating my life full-time to Leelalanu County. I am over the moon excited to let you all know that I got a job teaching high school up here. Some of you might recall that in my last update I shared how I was between education jobs and it was just a tad stressful--well, no more. I start back to the classroom today and I can't even tell you how excited I am!
So, while personally this is a big change for me and Ian, hopefully, not much will change for you on the business side of things. I am so thankful to have Beanie, my amazing renaissance assistant who handles a lot of the behind the scene stuff and she is able to take on some more responsibilities during this transition. Beanie will start to focus more on our West Michigan clients while I will focus more on our Leelanau clients, but otherwise, not much will feel different to you!
If you haven't had a chance to meet and work with Beanie yet, let me be the first to say that she is talent on legs. Her work throughout the past year with me has blown me away and I am so excited to see her ready to take on more clients and more responsibilities for Watassa.
As always, I am so grateful to have clients who are friends--you all bring me such joy and hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support and belief in Watassa and in me.
Cheers to a great school year!
