An Unexpected Happiness

Over the past two months, Stephen’s work load has significantly increased at GreenLoop IT Solutions. Working as a Sr. Field Engineer, Stephen travels all over the East Valley–Tempe, Mesa, Scottsdale, Queen Creek–and downtown Phoenix. He installs servers, manages networks, troubleshoots viruses, and does whatever necessary to provide the IT support GreenLoop’s clients require

Because not all computer issues can be resolved during regular business hours and computer problems are notorious for taking longer than planned, Stephen often works late or on the weekends. Last month, there was a week Stephen came home late every night, worked that Saturday and Sunday, and then the next weekend too. I’m so proud of Stephen’s diligence and tenacity when it comes to solving tough computer issues, but it is hard to be without him.

Thankfully Stephen works for some pretty cool people. Last week he received an email from his boss thanking him for great job handling the recent computer emergencies. His boss told him to take me out for a nice dinner date, and GreenLoop would pay for it!Fogo0001

So off we went to Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse in Scottsdale, which turned out to be Stephen’s dream restaurant. Fogo0002After sampling some of Fogo’s incredible salad bar items, we turned our cards to green–signaling the servers that we were ready to try their amazing meat selection. Fire-roasted meats were served tableside by men dressed in Brazilian gauchos. The meats melted in our mouths. So many cuts and kinds to try. What a deliciously unique dining experience.Fogo0004Fogo0003

Thanks, GreenLoop for an unforgettable date night!
