One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work with people all over the US, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, India, Turkey, Korea, Peru, etc. This year, it is my goal to visit as many offices as possible to get to know all of my co-workers really well and build good and lasting relationships based on mutual respect and trust.
Recently, I have been able to get out and meet with the Memphis and New York offices. I actually planned these trips because of specific work reasons, but an incredible side effect was that I got to meet up with two of my best friends in the world- Ann Taylor in NYC and Jennifer in Memphis. Please forgive me- I forgot my camera for both trips, so my pictures come solely from my blackberry. I was able to get just a couple of shots from each trip.
I have known these girls for almost exactly 11 years now.... Pretty amazing that you can meet people at 17, become friends, and stay friends through the test of time....We have been there for each other through the best of times and the worst of times.
I am truly grateful for friends like this!
I will have to come back to this blog and re-state the best memories over these past 11 years, but back to work for now. :)
