It’s been a while since we last updated! In the middle of weddings, birthday celebrations, shipping out new product and new albums, markets, holidays and projects, blogging plans were set aside. But we’re trying to get back in the swing of things!
So, what have we been doing? We planned the “forgotten” quarterly birthday celebration. The birthday girls for this quarter usually plan these things, and thought we had completely forgotten their birthdays. One Friday, while they all were gone, we started scheming and preparing. When they came in Monday morning, they found signs leading into the office, their desks covered in balloons, and the ultimate birthday scavenger hunt. One loading dock door, kickboxing dummy, old-fashioned press, stuffed monkey, mac Photobooth, email from our National Sales Manager, bowl of Jello, bathroom sink and decoy frozen pie later, they found their ice cream cake and we all celebrated! Lots of laughs were had that day (and some work managed to get done, too), and we now hope they know we will never forget their birthdays!
Two girls in our office got married at the end of June. Jamie, who has been working here on breaks from school for several years, married her high school sweetheart on Friday, June 26th. Since Jamie would be moving after the wedding, we said our goodbyes beforehand with a wonderful shower (and with LOTS of cake!). Nicole, who started working here last fall, married her college sweetheart the day after Jamie’s wedding. Lots of changes for these girls, and best wishes to them and their husbands!
Besides these big events, we’ve been staying busy with markets (Dallas and now Atlanta), new product coming in and shipping out, new albums coming in and shipping out, tidying up the office and warehouse, long-term projects, and holidays (who doesn’t love watching fireworks with friends and family?). We can hardly believe it’s July; this year has simply FLOWN by, and before we know it it will be time for the holidays.
We promise that we will make every effort to get this blog back on track, so please bear with us as we do so. In the meantime, enjoy this picture from the quarterly birthday celebration:
