Work Friends

I've been lucky in the month of June to have 2 meet-ups with co-workers! My role now at my company is virtual with my team living all over the country {and with some changes coming, I'm about to work with a lot of people in India so really all over the world!}, so it isn't often that I get to see my team in person. 

One of my co-workers, Angela, just moved to the area from California and her kids are the same age as Drew and Paige, so we had a great play date at a local watering hole and just let the kids be kids and we got to gab. It was so great to meet her after being on a team together for almost 2 years.

Girls are just the sweetest

I also got to spend time with my friend, Cristee. She is still in Audit where I used to be within my company - I started in September 2003 and she started in January 2007, and we've been friends ever since. We went to her wedding in Las Vegas when I was 28-weeks pregnant with Drew, and her son, Jalen, and Trent share a birthday. I hate that my role change means we don't see each other often, but I am vowing to do a better job of getting us together!

It's hard to believe we've been working together and friends for 13+ years given we just graduated from college last year, ha!

I love when kids get to just be kids

The park we went to had walking trails, bike trails, a creek, playground - it was great!

Nice to cool off in Texas in June!

One of my favorite memories is waking up on Trent's first birthday to a picture of a naked newborn on my phone - Cristee had been at Trent's birthday party the day before and went into labor in the middle of the night and had Jalen in the wee hours of Trent's birthday 2 weeks early.

I love working for such a great company that has given lifelong friends to me.

That's great you got to spend time with old and "new" co-workers. I've been at my job for 15 years and can't say I'm really close with anyone (except my Judge). I am thankful we've become friends through your blog!

Do you still get together with anyone from your starting class? We regular hang with a handful of people that we started with and it’s been over 10 years now
