So many people are brave enough to embark on a "photo-a-day" project. I'm incredibly jealous of these folks and I've wracked my brain trying to figure out if I'm creative enough to tackle something so ambitious. I've realized something...I'm not.
There's no way I can force myself to find something everyday worthy of taking a picture. But, I can focus on other things...namely, things for which I can be thankful. So, that’s my challenge. 365 days of being thankful...it's a goal, not a promise

I had a very long week this week. I had my boss traveling with me, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just exhausting. Regular days stretch out hours longer than usual because you're entertaining someone and going over a ton of work stuff. Anyhow, I ended this very long week at a party with three of my hotels over in Spokane. It was IHG Celebrate Service week and the 3 properties came together to throw a party of all of their employees to celebrate all that they do for us every day. It was special to be a part of their celebration. I know a lot of those employees and it was really nice to have the opportunity to thank them for all their service. In my current job, I don't often get the opportunity to to say thank you to all the line employees - I had forgotten how special that can be.
Here is a shot of one of the GM's launching the evening.
These hotels really went all out for this party. They had special awards and a full dinner for the employees and their families. For the kids, they brought in a babysitter, a clown and a petting zoo.
