November 4, 2012 - A time for thanks

Hey there, hi there and hello there.  It has been a wonderfully fantastic month indeed with a birthday, Halloween and a first year anniversary all rolled into a few weeks!  Plus, my sister Steph's birthday is this week too ... you're getting to be an old lady:)
Aflac has been fun over the last couple of weeks, especially as we were able to celebrate Halloween whilst at work with the Avenger crew, hilarious!  Additionally, we had a couple great leadership offsite meetings where we learned more about getting outside of the box, and then we took a trip to the ATL to learn about introspection at the High Museum as well as the competitive nature of our team when we hopped in some go-karts.  Last week I also had the chance to visit some friends up at our Aflac Group office in South Carolina helping to outline some process improvements and help where we can while visiting ol' friends.
The countdown has begun as well for our big Young Professionals event, Time for Art.  Next Thursday, November 15th we'll be at the CSU Corn Center for a creative community and cultural mixer.  A not-for profit agency fair mixed with a silent art auction, the twist, instead of bidding your money, you bid your volunteer time to the local community.  Hopefully we can get a great turnout because it's going to be a fun time!
A week ago today, Jenny and I were in Las Vegas for the best part of the month ... celebrating a year of wondermous wedded goodness!  Holy schnikes, where did that year go eh?!  We had a blast staying at the Luxor, gambling on the Clue machine, eating at buffets and goin gto shows.  We were able to see Criss Angel's illusion spectacle, Zumanity and the best show I've ever seen in my life, Cirque de Soleil's O aquatic masterpiece.  The last day we went to the breathtaking Hoover Dam, unfortunately we didn't get to see Megatron, maybe next time.  So many flashing lights, great company and dressing up like superheroes on the strip made for one memorable celebration of a year, thanks Jenny:)
Welp, off to start another 5 page paper for class, learning about Catholic Social Teaching this semester as well as my practicum, Time for Art ... busy time indeed!  Have a great week.
