I thought I’d post a few pictures of events I’ve done this month at work. The first one was really cool because it was my first media event all by myself. (I feel like singing the Huggies commercial, “I’m a big girl now!!”) Anyway, Satori is a seven year old in Dayton, Nevada who has spinal muscular atrophy. She is confined to a wheelchair and cannot move on her own. Through the Make a Wish Foundation, Satori was granted her very own, wheelchair accessible playhouse. I was involved in the project because our client, Reynen & Bardis Communities, volunteered to build the playhouse. My job: get RB some publicity for their charitable act. So, I wrote a press release, called the media, drove myself three hours to Dayton (lovely) and attended the delivery of Satori’s playhouse, along with most of the media in town! Woo hoo! I did my job! I posted a few pics: The entire group (Homebuilder, Satori’s family and friends) and a picture of Satori being interviewed by Channel 4 News.

Today I got back from a weekend in Fresno where Julie and I planned and then executed a lovely weekend grand opening of a new masterplan community. Our job: bring in ice cream and drinks for 750 people each day and plan an evening jazz concert. Doesn’t sound like much but trust me, it was a lot of work in 100 degree heat. Highlights of the weekend include: cold showers, Wassabi sushi and a late night meal at Cheesecake Factory. I’m happy to be home to my husband and the new shoes he bought me at the Nordstrom sale. 🙂 And, I’ll be happy to use those comp hours for our Hawaii trip in three weeks!!
