November was a crazy month for us.

On November 1, the twins turned one! On November 14, we flew with the twins to California, and took them to Disneyland for the first time on November 17. Also on November 17, I quit my job and accepted an offer to go to work with the amazing people at Automattic.

Today was my first full day on the job, and I can tell you right now that this was the right decision.

I’m very, very lucky; I have had some good jobs in my life, and some great opportunities. I’ve been able to learn a lot from each job, even the one where I cut my finger to the bone slicing a bagel, and they wanted me to keep working (lesson: get them to sign all medical paperwork). I’ve also learned things like making the most of my time, self-scheduling, and pursing my own on-going training. Every job, every boss, every task has helped me in some way, shape, or form. I am truly grateful.

Looking forward, I’m thrilled to let you all know that now I’m a Happiness Engineer with Automattic! I am delighted to get to spend my days working with some of the smartest, funniest people I have had the honor of getting to know. And they are all ridiculously good looking. I am a perfect fit.

My job will be to help people who want to use Automattic products; specifically, So if you have a blog that you need help with, don’t hesitate to let me know!

I also had a root canal in November, but who cares?

The day after Disneyland we flew to Hawaii for two weeks… more on that later.
