i JUST found these pictures on a friend's facebook from our first company party, four days after we started working with castaway.

this event was a beginning-of-the-season initiation of sorts. for everyone in the company to party hard and bond and go into the winter with a positive attitude. and it totally worked! i got to know everyone that day--we became a family. and boy did we party hard. can you tell?

i thought twice about posting these pictures on such a public forum (don't ask where i got that crazy hat), but since we're about to have an end-of-the-season castaway party this weekend, i thought WHY NOT. bringin' it full circle.

and hey! this blog is my promise to live deliberately. to cherish wild moments and to give a true account of my excursions. so here it is. nobody can say i didn't have any fun here ;)
