Happy Birthday Joanne

So, it took Joanne's birthday to get us to have our very first lunch away from the office....ever!  Joanne and I have worked together since July last year and we have never left the office for lunch, and nor has the rest of the team.  Yikes.  It was time to correct that.  Joanne's birthday was a great excuse.  Here are a few photos.

Jen, with her amazing knowledge of local catering companies, knew the very best place to get a truly unique cake

Good thing it came with special cutting instructions

Joanne was tickled pink by this handmade gift from her youngest son Will.  It's now proudly displayed at her desk.  She loved the note that came with it:  "You're the best mom.  I could never replace you."

So it was a really fun day, on lots of fronts.  We have a new team member to fill Jeanne's former Discovery Team role (more on her later).  It made Joanne so happy that the new person said, at the end of the day, "I don't want to leave."

When Joanne told me that, I said, "Oh we will wear her out soon enough."  Thinking of the unusual lunch out today, Jen said, "Oh yeah.  Tomorrow it's 'Bring your sandwich!'"

It's a good thing that the work we do is pretty darn fun, or we'd have to have a lot more lunches out.
