Share the Love
Last week, my company hosted a party in honor of Valentine's Day and the Community Warehouse, a local non-profit that supplies household items to people recovering from crisis and in need of assistance setting up new homes. As Elizabeth says, we combined "social activity with social activism" and had a great time. I enlisted Mike's help, and the good sport that he is, he stayed until the last glass was loaded into the dishwasher.
Besides general chit-chat, set-up and clean-up, my biggest contribution was the layout of the candy. Inspired by Martha Stewart's February issue, I scoured the stores for heart-shaped cookie cutters (best deals at Michael's) and jelly bellys. It was very festive.
