The Post About Working for Sweets and Swag

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Confucius

I've mentioned before that I work with a team of folks from all over Alabama. We are gathered together this week to huddle and envision even better work ahead. We also enjoy food. And any excuse to eat it. Marriage, pregnancy, confirmation, 3 sneezes in a row - all occasions are observed with yummies.

My coworker "Biff" is expecting a little nugget named Tanner.
Tanner's Cupcake

I thought dark chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing were in order.

Tanner's Cake Pops
I've also started a longterm relationship with those darn cake pops. Blasted Bakerella!

It's not just food that makes my job a wonderful place to spend 40% of my days.
Hawaiian Shell Lei
Gifts. My coworker "Risa" returned from a Hawaiian excursion. She brought back beautiful shell necklaces. Almosttoosmalltofitovermyginormoushead shell necklaces, but beautiful nonetheless.

Olive Dove
Another coworker, "Kim" crossed the globe to visit Israel a few weeks ago. She gifted us with olive wood dove pendants that she had blessed at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. I cannot possibly blog about how much this meant to me. I may have shed a few tears. The size of alligators.

Do you have something lovely to share about your work? Of course, there's always room at the inn for venting...

  1. I think your pictures are just fabulous - that one with the olive wood dove on the Word is pretty awesome! And by the way, after eating a cake pop I couldn't hold a cupcake and am now very sad I didn't get to taste them...I love dark chocolate.


Don't be afraid if I chase your rabbit comment...
