My great nephew, Kyle, is a little cutie. We don’t know each other well so he’s not sure what to think of his auntie V2. He waddled into grandpa’s house (my brother) Easter afternoon. Stopped dead in his tracks when he saw me. The look on his face spoke for itself, “What is she doing here? She made funny faces at me before. I think peek-a-boo was her game of choice. Don’t understand why she took my binkie. Hmmm …. let’s see what she’s up to today.” He proceeded to walk toward me when distraction presented itself…..toy blocks! As Kyle beagn playing with the blocks, I joined him. Immediately, I could see the expression on his face change: “ahhhh …..maybe she’s not so mysterious afterall … she likes playing with blocks!” We stacked blocks, we knocked them down, we laughed uncontrollably. “Hmmmm …. maybe she’s alright afterall?”.

Wanna see my little cutie?


So precious!

Until next time, V2

Vivian Valencia

Hi, my name is Vivian Valencia also known as “V2”. I’ve been with Verity since late 1999 and am currently serving as Director of Community Relations. My job involves increasing our Verity family of members, ensuring our corporate sponsorships are utilized to the fullest and working with our branch staff on community outreach. I LOVE my job, absolutely ADORE my colleagues, and life in general is pretty darn good. Almost every day I easily find something(s) to be grateful for ……. can you tell I’m a positive kinda’ gal?!?.

Here are a few fun facts: My favorite color is purple; I was shy as a kid (most would find this surprising); my secret wish is to learn to sing accapella (most wish I’d just learn already!); Anderson Cooper is my secret crush (well, my most recent secret crush); I love waking early in the morning to listen to the quiet; fudge brownies with walnuts and caramel are my friends!

See ya’ in the blogosphere! V2
