Catching up to do...

We are currently in blog delinquency. I've been traveling a ton and have pictures we need to post including Tiara and Bryan's visit, a day at the dog beach and Luke & Lina's baptism.

Coming this week...I promise!

Golf? Sure...

Since I am not in sales, golfing with clients hasn't really been part of my professional to-do list up to this point. A couple weeks ago, that changed.

One of our biggest clients—based in upstate NY—wanted us to sponsor a foursome at a golf tournament for FANA, an adoption organization. It may seem random, but the marketing director for the client is actually good friends with my cousins in NY and they used FANA to adopt their four beautiful kids. So, a work function turned into a wonderful excuse to see family, quality time with a big advertiser, and my first official golf outing.

It was successful on most counts. Needless to say, I wasn't a rockstar golfer at first blush (even if I did have several amazing putts), but the fact that we played "best ball" kept the day moving. I would definitely do it again, but would need to spend ample time at a driving range in advance of any future time on the green.

Here are just a few pics from my 18-holes.
