All good things

We were saddened to say goodbye to our fabulous boss Alyson and her husband Rick this week, as they PCS out after a wonderful tour here in Liberia. I’m so grateful to have had the chance to work with such a great boss and mentor – I hope our paths meet again. We had planned for a pizza party at our house, along with our defense attaché with whom we spent many hours at the airport last year doing evacuation flights, but COVID put an end to that idea. Instead, John and I delivered pizza, salad, and cookies to them – somehow a fitting end to our time together that has been so shaped by the pandemic.

I had a good call with Jamie and Jackie last weekend. I’ve worked Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and look forward to celebrating the 4th tomorrow with a day off. With a skeleton staff, it’s hard to catch up and we haven’t cancelled any appointments yet.

We met Stephanie and Justin on their apartment building rooftop Saturday night for a final happy hour before they head off to their next adventure in Jordan. We’ll miss their friendship and game nights! Safe travels.

Here’s looking at you, handsome!
