As you all can probably tell from the title, I will be leaving The Hip Joint. In fact, Saturday, September 29 is my last shift. (So, if you want to come in and say a little goodbye or get your last pointe shoe fitting from me then come on in before close this Saturday. I would love to see you… Oh, but if you want me to fit you in pointe shoes, please make an appointment first.)
The reason I am leaving is, I have chosen to move to Richmond; and although I wish I could continue working here, or take The Hip Joint with me to Richmond (that would make me happiest), I unfortunately cannot, and I cannot continue to make the commute back and forth to work. Also, next fall I will be going back to VCU to finish getting my masters in accounting. So, unfortunately, there just isn’t enough time in one day to do everything that I would like, and with every choice in life, there are sacrifices that have to be made.
That being said, I really am going to miss The Hip Joint, its staff, and its clientele. You all have made the five years that I’ve worked here so much more enjoyable than any other job I’ve ever worked. I really felt like this shop was a home away from home for me, and an inviting, warm, and peaceful escape from my sometimes crazy life. I’ve made some good friends and gained a best friend while working here. I’ve also learned so much about so many different things! So, I wanted to send you all a BIG thank you, thank you, thank you. Each and everyone of you were part of my learning/growing experience here, and I appreciate you all for that and your dedication to The Hip Joint. Thank you for all the great memories and I wish you all the best in your respective futures.
If you want to keep in touch, you can find me on Facebook at Amberlyn Sasser.
Love to you all and break a leg!
