Hi there friends. We're halfway through another week, and I will certainly be glad to put this one behind me.
Most of you probably know that I work as a lab technician at the same college where my husband is a professor. I started there almost two years ago, and it has been the perfect job for me for many reasons.
Unfortunately, our college has had to make a number of staffing cuts in the past year, and I learned last Friday that my position will no longer exist as of July 1. It didn't come as a total surprise, but I'm still struggling to come to terms with the finality of the decision.
I'm trying to stay positive and focus on all of the projects around the house that I've been anxious to tackle, and I'd like to think I'll be able to spend more time in my craft room. But I definitely feel as if I'm at a crossroads, especially since my son will be starting Kindergarten in the fall, and I had not envisioned being home once my kids were in school full time.
What does all of this have to do with my card today? Well, this one is for my hubby. Needless to say the events of the past week have been hard on him, especially since he will continue to work with the people who ultimately made this decision.
I just love this saying from the Knotty stamp set by Avery Elle. My guy is my true north, without a doubt, and I know he'll help me find my way again.

Thanks so much for letting me share my news with you today. I promise to have a much more upbeat post with a fun and "fabulous" card very soon. Stay tuned!
