Three weeks ago my parents came to visit and it was a wonderful weekend. It was a rainy Friday in the office with most of the teams gone, so at the end of the day I toured Mom and Dad through the Unilever floors at 3 Commerce Drive. It was quite fun to show them where I spend my time and for them to see why I am loving working here.
Saturday was a lovely day in the city. We took the train in at 10:30 and arrived at 1 pm to have quiche, hot cider, and pastries at a bakery in Rockefeller Plaza. Then we took a taxi to lower Manhattan to spend the afternoon at the 9/11 museum and memorial. It was a touching experience, and the perfect people to spend it with. It was great fun to have my Nikon along and to enjoy the crisp fall city weather. We ended the day with burgers and shakes before catching the train back to Shelton, where I traded backrubs with Mom. I'm a lucky girl.
I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
