My last day as a Temp!

Caption reads: Here Sally Bentz is wearing a Burda dress designed by Sally Bentz herself from her label Sew Sally Sew. It has cinched sleeves, a round collar and two front pockets.

Caption reads: Susan Bentz is wearing a white 100% polyester knit by Enka. It has short sleeves and set in pockets. The red, white and blue silk scarf slides through self-fabric loops on the shoulder and is worn with Navy blue accessorises from Montgomery Ward.

Yesterday was my last day as a temporary worker. It has been over a year this time around. To celebrate my last day I wore the dress I just finished to work. I really like this dress and it is really similar to my Mom’s. On my lunch Svetlana did a photo shoot of me. Thanks Svetlana! I am leaving the downtown financial district and will be working at the Presidio. It is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It is beautiful and picturesque. There are things I will miss about the Financial District and things I will not miss!

*Meeting for lunch with Svetlana
*Specialty’s cookies and sandwiches
*The Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building

*AB class with the cute instructor (Sorry I don't have a picture of this)

Will not miss:
*Tall buildings
*Hustle Bustle

*Uppity people
*$10 for lunch

Tomorrow I officially start my new job with the local non-profit Friends of the Urban Forest as a Planting Manager. I will be organizing and managing monthly tree plantings in different neighborhoods through out San Francisco. I will be working in an office, but also out in the field. I like getting dirty. Not only will I be greening San Francisco and making the urban environment more livable, but I will be able to create community. I am extremely excited and ready to start making a difference. I have waited 6 years for this and I can't wait for my job to be my passion. If you want to find out about the organization you can go to

Good bye old life...
