This is one of the most beautiful quotes ever!

"Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go."

- Mother Teresa -

Sister's Dinner September

Wendy suggested The Fishmonger for our monthly Sister's Dinner.  The portions were huge and we all ended up taking half our meals home for the hungry masses!

To get pictures is always a challenge however we managed to finally get these!

Administrative Professionals Day aka Secretary's Day

  "National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary's Day was created  in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. Klemfuss recognized the importance and value of the position to a company or business. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss, promoted the values and importance of the job of secretaries. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of secretaries. Today,  the title is changing and evolving. But, the recognition is equally important. There are two new terms in use today. They are "Administrative Professionals" and "Executive Admins". The two names sometimes mean different roles and responsibilities to different companies. Both are broader terms, that encompass more positions than the original "Secretary" role. The name change recognizes and acknowledges that the role has changed significantly since 1952, and for the better at that. And in Harry Klemfuss' day, these postions were the realm of women. Today, you find some males in these positions."

I was surprised by my bosses on Secretary's Day with these stunning flowers!

Nick, Rob and Dean really do appreciate all I do for them!

Although it was officially Spring Day today, when we came out of the restaurant it was soooo cold!
