The present in question is a lovely item about yesterday's "Anniversary" post that appeared on Publishing Perspectives today.
It's written by Erin Cox, who is also coming up on a year since she left corporate life. She seems to be making the most of it, and stands as another reminder that leaving a job is not the worst thing that's ever going to happen to you. It may even turn out to be one of the better things that's ever going to happen to you. There is definitely life beyond the 9-to-5.
