Saying good-bye to a good friend...
A co-worker of mine (whom I love and adore) is leaving our company at the end of the year. She's taken a new job at a start-up closer to home. She's really excited, and I'm happy for her. But boy, am I going to miss her.
So she's taking what she has left of her official vacation time, and taking the last handful of days off to go vacation in Costa Rica. So as her parting gift, I gave her my Tom Bihn Small Cafe Bag. On the days I'd brought it to work, she'd ooh and aah at it and talk about how it was the perfect size (she's only 5 feet tall).
Today, she told me she's been packing, and found that she could pack her iPad, Kindle, and iPhone all into her SCB. She said, "This is so much better than my last vacation, when I took a separate laptop bag with all the cables and cords and everything. This is so much better!"
I will miss her terribly. But now, I can be happy knowing she will be going to work with her Cafe Bag.
