Engagement!

Alex Underwood: Facility Services Manager

Happy (almost) spring, from the Northwest Metro!

Hope everyone enjoyed the unusually warm weather we had recently and that you were able to get a jump start on your spring cleaning.

There is a lot happening in the Northwest Metro.  Many new accounts have started, which is great!  New accounts bring more opportunities for me to help customers improve the appearance and performance of their facilities. 

Personally, it has been a very exciting start to the year, as I asked my girlfriend, Rachel to marry me at the end of January! Lucky for me, she said yes!

For the proposal, I planned a "family" day with our dog, to take a nice walk around Minnehaha Falls.  Little did Rachel know what was actually in store!  She was very surprised when I got down on one knee and a photographer started snapping candid photos of the moment.

I didn't realize how much went into planning a wedding.  We have been very busy touring venues, meeting with photographers, and tasting the catering menus.  We did pick a date and after many tours, a venue as well.  Our wedding is set to take place at a winery & vineyard in Pepin, Wisconsin, on October 6, 2018.  This is a beautiful facility with great atmosphere and some pretty tasty wine.  Deciding on a date and a pace was such a big relief!  Now we can really start making decisions on the other vendors for our wedding. 
 
We are very excited for our big day!
