Today is so beautiful… I’m happy and grateful. Thoughts on what I’ve done while at Fox Chicago News:

-First Female Chief Meteorologist In Chicago
-Unveiled the First DualPol Radar in the Midwest
-Made Fox Chicago the city’s First NOAA Storm Ready Supporter TV Station
-Hosted the First Ever Weather Education Days at the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Wolves Hockey
-Visited 25,000 School Children in the Chicago area over 4 years
-Most Accurate Forecast in Chi from 2007-2011
-Emmy Winner for “Surviving Severe Weather”
-Chief Presenter for Shedd Aquarium’s First Ever “Listen to Our Lakes” with my Storm Water Alert Program
-Official Forecasts for Soldier Field and the Chicago Bears
-Countless opportunities to work with charities and people who make a difference in Chicagoland

But honestly, my professional accomplishments pale in comparison to the love, friendship, relationships, moments I have shared with co-workers and friends. Thank you. -af

Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
