Yes, Valentineâ€™s Day is uber-commercialized and oft overdone, but one thing I do like about it, (besides the chocolate â€“ my fave food group) is that it gives us a reason to celebrate each other. At work we have a Fun Committee (yes, my job is that awesome) that administrates fun events that help us to appreciate our coworkers every time a holiday rolls around. Today I brought in a bouquet of flowers and split it up between an assortment of Crate & Barrelâ€™s bud vases ($2.50 each) to create personal mini bouquets for each of my coworkers in my immediate department. At less than $4 a person, the completed arrangements are just a small, inexpensive way to spruce up our space and let everyone know theyâ€™re appreciated. Of course, weâ€™re also making personalized cards (the Fun Committee means business) but Iâ€™d love to know: Do you celebrate holidays at your job?
Happy Valentineâ€™s Day everyone, from all of us here at Shelterrific! â€“Sarah C.
