From Kiley to Caroline - You are such a freaking champ — the fact that you JUST got knee surgery and still manage to put yourself down for nearly all of the subs needed this month is a miracle. I’m so proud of you and your growth & excited to see the way you impact BIG Denver and beyond!
From Kiley to Megan - Thank you for doing alllll the things that you’re doing behind the scenes. Bringing on SEVENTEEN team members at once - HELLO you are amazing
From Eliza to Joi - thank you for brightening my Monday mornings!! Wow, what a true gift it has been to start my week with you (and our boy Paul). I love laughing and joking at 5:15 in the morning, and it really sets the tone of my whole week. Thanks for being YOU!
From Eliza to Nancy - I have loved spending so much time with you (virtually & in person) over the last few weeks especially. I'm grateful I get to be led by you, learn from you, grow with you and work along side you. I cherish our TEP wrap ups every weekend as we chit chat about the smallest things to the deepest things. Love you always.
From Eliza to Jamie - Love you so much. I am constantly inspired by your strength, especially now. Thank you for trusting me and others to care for you during this time and know that I am here for absolutely anything and everything.
From Eliza to Paul - You're the BEST and I'm gonna miss you so much once you leave me on our Monday mornings (jk because I'll get to see you even more in person but still!). You are seriously the nicest, most caring human and I know the BIG at Home yogis have been so lucky to get to be with you all these months.
From Eliza to Jenny - thanks for stepping in during TEP! They gained so much from you sharing and being with them this past weekend.
From Eliza to Chan - it's been so fun getting to work with you more lately! Our schedules have aligned so that we've gotten to hang out during different shifts and it's been so sweet. I specifically acknowledge you for knowing the community SO WELL. It makes a huge difference to them (and me!) that you took the time to get to know people's names and really connect with them. I hope we get more shifts together!
