I continually get to meet nice and interesting people at my job. One of my favorite colleagues is Alice, who is an internal client working on energy and environmental issues. Alice is much younger than me, but we get along very well. Perhaps it is our Maryland connection (I grew up there and my high school graduation was on the UM campus, which is her alma mater).
We share a love of food and spend a lot of time talking about recipes and restaurants and the like. She is smart, funny and friendly - all you want in a friend.
Today is her birthday and she has to be traveling on business. So Happy Birthday Alice from California!
