To end of a legacy - the SUPER GAs

I will be attending a conference in Washington DC the entire week of May 26th - that same week will also be Isabella and Young Sang's last week at our office. I will truly miss them. In the few years we have all worked together, we have learned to respect each other, trust and also attuned ourselves to each person's work ethics. We (including our dear friend and former GA, Wojtek) have formed a great friendship inside and outside of the work place and have shared many interesting stories with each other. It will be strange for me to head back to work after the conference without Isabella and Young Sang there. I wish you both best wishes and good luck in your future plans and know that you have been a true friend and the greatest colleagues anyone could ever ask for!

Isabella & Beth's Baby shower

The entire OIE office came in celebration of Isabella & Beth's baby shower... and yes, you read that correct. A baby shower attended by almost everyone in our office (Men included!). There were an assortment of food, games and cute presents!! Baby Sanchez and Baby Biniskiewicz will be so thrilled to see their new toys and outfits! Thanks you everyone who helped made this shower a memorable one for Isabella & Beth and a super thank you to my dearest and prettiest co-hostess, Joanna!
