D.C. NOT in D.C. week 9

My title brings it to the attention for all of you who did not notice that I am not in DC right now! But no worries I will be back early tomorrow morning. I was fortunate enough to be able to come home to Canton, Ohio for one of my first cousin's wedding. I really enjoyed myself and it was a well needed dose of medicine for my homesickness that I have been having.

Although I went home early Friday morning, the majority of the week I did spend in DC and it was pretty hectic. I spent a good 48 hours trying to get prepared for the JFA Awards ceremony we attended Thursday and I am glad I was chosen to speak on behalf of us all. This actually opened up another networking door for me, seeing that I received many accolades for my short description of my experience here. I received a free, autographed version of a book and exchanged some contact information with some people who are within the Department of Homeland Security!

When I return, I have some lunch dates to attend and a little more work to do at the USDA. God is good all the time and all the time God is good! I'm in for a long flight tonight so I will you all tomorrow!

Until next time!
