Very inspiring and timely for my life!
Thank you Kay!

Kay Baumhefner

So good to hear. Thank YOU, Amy!

Laura Vais

Nice blog Kay! When I stepped away from work after all these years, I referred to it as "rewirement" not retirement. I was immediately grateful for the sense of freedom I felt and found that time revealed new choices and new opportunities! A big yes for fulfillment!

I love that parallel "rewirement" twist, Laura, as well as hearing about your sense of freedom and opportunity. While I still do some culinary consulting and am also actively involved in our wine business, the release from the full-time work commitment of running the cooking school (or cheffing somewhere else), has finally allowed me to look more seriously at a series of writing projects I've had to keep simmering on the back burner for ages. And since I'm that much more of my own boss for that daily activity, I can now also give myself this classic time to revel in the joys of traveling and playing with our new grandson. Yes, it just keeps getting better and better. Cheers and thanks all around!
