👋 Erin here, and since this is officially my last newsletter as a RALtoday editor, I just want to say thank you for being such wonderful readers + for giving me the opportunity to share what I love most about living in the City of Oaks. Ihave been so lucky to launch this newsletter product in our city — in addition to being a true joy and pleasure, writing for you all each day has also made me a more engaged and active local citizen.
As I leave you in the best of hands (shoutout to Carly + Laura), I’ll be moving into a Senior Editor role within our parent company, 6AMCity… but I’ll still be right here in Raleigh, learning more and exploring every day. As I look back on the past 20-ish months, the thing that I think best represents the work we’ve done is this. 🎶 We built this city, Raleigh — let’s keep building together.
#RALcurrent: What we’re eating — Carly is stuffed from last night’s Easter dinner + Laura is enjoying way too many jelly beans.
