We like to party! We like – we like to party! No, the Venga Bus is not coming, but July 12th came and went; which means we had a party to celebrate Maddy‘s birthday! If you know us, you know we like to throw office birthday parties. To wrap up last week (and send Maddy off to Florida for a birthday weekend getaway) we floated balloons to the ceiling, hung a piñata, and lit some birthday candles in honor of our beloved Office Manager Maddy.
Laura‘s favorite thing to do is shop so Maddy left for Florida stacked with gifts that were useful on her trip, and useful upon her return (she brought Florida’s heat and humidity with her). As seen in the pictures from the party, not only are Maddy’s eyes protected from those harmful UV rays, but she looks d#%n good in her brand new sunglasses. She’ll be stylin’ all summer, turning heads and stopping traffic in those shades.
After Maddy opened her gifts, she got to release all of her remaining stress before going to Florida by absolutely DEMOLISHING the piñata. Filled with Maddy’s favorite candies (Mounds and Almond Joys – ew) and some more family-friendly candies (Snickers, Milky Way Midnight, and 3 Muskateers – yum) the piñata stood no chance. Between Maddy and Laura, it was raining candy before we knew it.
I always look forward to our office parties. It gives us a chance to close our computers, put down the case files, and talk amongst each other about things other than DUI law and 4th Amendment jurisprudence. We love our job here, and we take very seriously the privilege of representing our clients, but it’s important for office morale and mental health to unwind at the end of a long week in honor those we rely upon so heavily to make the office run. So here’s to Maddy, Happy Birthday, salud!
