All the ladies in the office were just surprised with bouquets of flowers by some of the guys in the office.  My initial response was of course, "What do you want" but quickly turned to "Awwwww, how sweet".  What a very sweet way to brighten up the day!  Thanks guys!

Richard, there were no strings attached. We did this because these ladies work super hard every day and deserved something special. I thought you knew me better than that haha :)


Awesome idea Kerrie on the Chatterbox- I can see this being alot of fun! Let the questions commence!

Richard - You need to be on stage. I'm not kidding.  You constantly make me laugh and I love ya for it!!!

I think the idea of the Chatterbox is absolutely fantastic.  That should prove very popular.  But even more than that I love the idea of the flowers.  Thoughtful, unexpected gestures are such a joy.  I keep my wedding ring in my pewter box, and it brings a smile to my face every time I open it.  You obviously deserve it!

I've always loved to get flowers. Now I have them in my own garden and treat myself to a few in my office every day. Brightens the day.

Richard is right Abe, we may not even know it yet but we've attached strings to these flowers...Maybe weeks, months, years down the road, we'll go to Kerrie for a favor and when she gives that emphatic New York "NO!", we'll pull the Flower Card.  As men, it's what we do best!

All seriousness aside, er..I mean joking aside, Kerrie, Kelly, Kelly, Kristi, Kate, McCullough, Michelle, Sonja and Emily are all awesome co-workers who handle our sometimes boyish antics (nerf darts, screaming monkies flying around the office) quite well.

You just have to love "no strings attached" flowers!

Note to Abe: Hey man, I'll never break the code of men, but really? No strings attached?!!!

Note to Kerrie: Of course there were no strings attached. We men do things like this all the time.... just because!

I love the concept of the Chatterbox and I think it will be very useful and fun! I just love all the new innovation and energy that I get by being a member of ActiveRain.

You definitely deserve those flowers and aren't they just beautiful! They were made just for you and you deserve to get more on a regular basis!

Thanks for all that you do Kerrie, You are greatly appreciated!

Walking into the office this am was a treat!  The flowers are so fragrant.  Happy Friday!!!

Your office looks like a fun place to work.  If it weren't for all of us complainers it would probably be perfect =]

Posted by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS, Tacoma Washington Agent/Broker & Market Authority! (RE/MAX Northwest.) over 7 years ago

Paul - Ha!  But thats what makes it so fun!  ;)  You should come to the MeetUp here on 9/8 @ 4-6pm!!!! 

Posted by Kerrie La Guardia, Let it Rain! (ActiveRain, Community Manager) over 7 years ago

Kerrie - that was indeed sweet that you girls all got flowers.........perhaps they should institute a monthly FLOWER DAY for the hardworking girls (we DO love flowers and what better way to say you are appreciated) :-)

Kerrie - I think Richard is blatantly angling for extra points but I'm so glad you got those beautiful flowers. (I'm sure the real reason will come out in the near future :). Barbara-Jo is right- we girls love flowers. I, however, prefer mine still on the plant if anyone is listening.

Good Morning, firstly I want to congratulate you for the excellent website you have. I noticed by the content that is not easy to keep constant visits to your site, I also have content sites and know the difficulty we have bringing visitors to our sites, so I guess you should use several methods of dissemination to get visitors to your site . For this reason, I decided to write this email to submit my email extraction tool from the internet. It is a tool that extracts emails separated by following location (city, state), occupations, or any that you choose to create a campaign that can bring many buyers to your website. Remembering that tool is free to test our site Many thanks for your attention. Att. Romero.
