Odds and Ends
I don't have anything much to report today. Yesterday we had a very nice Labor Day picnic with the girls and their men. Everyone brought something and of course, we had too much food. Leftovers are always wonderful! I was super busy at work today and I had by CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) luncheon meeting today. The guest speaker was really good. His name was Brian Parsley, a motivational speaker of sorts. The topic was I love my job....again! This speech was geared towards reinventing your enthusiasm for your job, make it new and fresh. He also talked alot about branding yourself and your company. We all have to be careful in this world of making your life so public (blogs, facebook, twitter, etc.) and that we may be branding ourselves without giving what we post much thought. He made some really good points and also had many jokes to tell. Very interesting topics. Tonight DH is working so I'm going over to the jewelry table in a little bit. I made some gingerbread for the guys at work. They all told me none of their wives bake!! I love to bake! Everyone have a great evening!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
