Last Friday marked my last day at the Publicis building on The Embarcadero. So many memories and so much learned in just a few years. My teammates surprised me with flowers, champagne, iced cakes and a video appropriately titled "La Vie en PF" (an obvious inside joke).
The production was sweeter than the cakes, I had to refrain from bursting into tears. But alas I chose to complete the event with hard liquor instead. So those of us who could, ended the evening at Ana Mandara. After all, no goodbye is complete without more drinks.
I'm going to miss this crew.
