Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day from your friends at PaperStyle!
Our heartfelt thank you to all the men and women who have served and given their lives in service to their country.

On Memorial Day the flag is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.

The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all.

Last night, some of the Paper Style crew went to the local bowling alley for a few games of bowling!
We're a "slightly competitive" group of people. Each Strike was cheered (sometimes with a little victory dance or pirouette) and each time that one elusive pin still stood the cries of "you were robbed!" or "I think that one is glued" were heard.

Boyd managed to bring in the high score for the men with a 170, after 5 strikes in a row! Terri lead the ladies with 131. We had a lot of fun, and after last night - a few of us might just start a team!

Puerto Vallarta Wedding!

My wife Lindsay and I were just in Mexico for our dear friends Tammy and Linnette's wedding.  What an amazing week and celebration... We wish them our very best! - Chris
The wedding guests took over the super cool, all inclusive resort Playa Fiesta  just outside of the city.  As a dog lover, I snapped a shot of one of the two dogs that belong to the owners Adam and Lindsay from San Francisco.
The center piece of the property was their mosaic pool where we pretty much spent all day.  And the sunsets are as good as it gets!
The welcome party was held at La Bodeguita Del Medio in downtown Puerto Vallarta.  Yes, there was plenty of tequila... It was quite a welcome!  The next day we noticed a sand-art contest where the Mayan Calendar piece really caught our eyes.  The detail was amazing.  They spray it with water periodically so it doesn't fall apart!

In our burlap welcome bags, we received a personal letter and rock with a word painted on that represented us (part of the beach on the property has thousands of rocks that washed up during a hurricane sometime ago).  In return, at the reception, we were asked to do the same for the couple and place them in glass jars... "A single rock represents strength, but with lots of rocks and mortar, you can build a fortress!"  How true and what a cool idea.  And the printed cocktail napkins were a great touch!

....and now for something completely different!

We were joking around last week and decided to do a "Fun Shirt Friday" for today! Hope your Friday has been fun as well!

Nous aimons nos mamans! (We love our moms!)

Paper Style has three special families where a mom joined our team and then a daughter/son have followed.  We think that's very cool.  So in honor of them and all of our moms -  we think you are the best and wish you a very happy day!
