Kate Blackstone  Un poco de todo.

The farewell party celebrating my 17 years at Metropolitan Press is on Monday. My boss (former boss, I guess), who has long been much more than a boss, thought it was important that someone who was a big part of those 17 years should be here for it. In cahoots with my wife (who can NEVER keep surprises a secret), he flew my boy in from California. Alex was 5 when I started at Met.

And this, my friends, is why I stayed as long as I did, and why it was so hard to leave. #stillinshock #bestsurpriseever #morethanaboss #lastdayonthejob #unreal #myheartisfull

In the 17 years I worked at my company, many people have come and gone - but these guys I worked with for 15 years. Fernando didn't speak a word of English when we met, and it blew his mind when I spoke to him in Spanish. Dennis - a refugee from Sierra Leone - is the smiliest guy I know. I love and will miss them both. #goodguys #friends #itsnotgoodbye #lucky

One chapter ends, and another begins. This is a bittersweet farewell. I love this company, I love my staff (past and present), I love the relationships with clients and vendors that were built along the way... I learned so much, and will miss the place deeply. It's been one helluva rollercoaster ride, and I wouldn't change it for the world. On to new adventures! #thenextchapter #whatsnext #bittersweet

When you are used to wearing a big watch all the time, and you leave it at home, having a random pair of shoelaces in your backpack really comes in handy. #watch #bigwatch #mywristcannotbenaked #whattimeisit #resourceful

Came across this little treasure while packing up my office. One more week till it's time to say goodbye to the company I love and spent 17 years helping build and grow. #itsthefinalcountdown #adventureawaits #newpriorities #letgo #holyshit #whatareyouwaitingfor

Since it's been requested by at least two people, it's the first item on my to-do list today. 17 years of acquired knowledge... #mighttakeawhile #9morebusinessdays #newadventures #bittersweet #noideawhatsnext #biggesttrustfallever
