Cheers to Sheri

Abby says:

Well the day has come for us to say farewell to Sheri Riley Roman. She is on to greener pastures and will no longer be part of the Candid Girl Chat blog. But, I suspect she'll always continue to be the candid girl I met and became quick friends with (well not that quick since she was sort of mean to me when I first met her!) more than 20 years ago.

She's busy with her own blog and a jaunt into a new life -- scary and exciting at the same time, I suspect. I have walked in her shoes. I wish her much luck. We have shared many good times, laughs, cries, oldies stories, books, travel excursions and more. I will miss her wit and interesting tidbits that have made our blog a success.

Cheers, Sheri! The grass WILL be greener for you.

Candid Girl Chat lives on, but, you'll have to deal with me. I have no idea what it will be, but I guarantee I'll have much to say and interesting guest bloggers.

Sheri says:

Hopefully I will still participate occasionally.

This is an interesting time for me. It's very sad as I finalize the end of my marriage, and the rippling changes from that alter every aspect of my life. It's nerve wracking to be looking for a job during this economy and deal with the emotional and frightening prospects of not knowing. It's exciting to know that whatever this new chapter brings, it will be an adventure. Mostly, it's exhausting to have so many areas of my life in the midst of change. I crave routine and a sense of stability. Right now I have neither.

I have loved being a part of this blog. I thank Abby for letting me create it with her and I thank everyone who bothered to read it. Blogs are a great release, and I will continue with my other one: Rileywritings.blogspot.com.

So I sign off for now, but I remain a Candid Girl.
