Hot Pink Plants
September 3, 2014
A little while ago, I wrote about the hot pink hair extension I got while on maternity leave and the hot pink plant Chewbacca's dad got me when I went back to work to serve as a reminder of my hair extension. My hot pink plant has become a symbol of a tiny rebellion at work to put my family first. It sits on the corner of my desk and reminds me to leave work early whenever I can. (shhh, don't tell my boss).
In honor of that sentiment, my coworker and friend (and very kind supporter of my blog) just came back to work yesterday from her maternity leave. As a welcome back present, I got her her very own pink plant:
A little more subdued than my hot pink guy, but you get the point.
Hopefully it'll be a reminder to her to leave when she can and get home to spend time with her sweet daughter. I think the more pink plants we can get in the offices, the better!
