From Donna:

I start this edition of News for the Week on a bittersweet note. After seven years at My Itchy Travel Feet, Assistant Editor, Nicole Jewell is leaving us. I wish her much success and will truly miss her.

From Nicole:

Well, Christmas time is upon us and I hope you all have a nice holiday and happy new year! As Donna mentioned, I’ll be stepping away from My Itchy Travel Feet after almost seven years. It’s been a pleasure being part of the site and getting to know some of the readers as well as our fabulous guest contributors. Happy Travels!
