Baby Please Don't Go…..








Rachael Allison marries Ben Braun in her Xtabay wedding gown. 

We have bittersweet news to share at Xtabay. Our beloved Rachael (and Toby) are moving on up in the world. Rachael is leaving the Xtabay family to start a new job up at OHSU. We are excited for her to start this new chapter in her life but also sad to lose such a wonderful friend and employee.

Rachael is the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful person I have ever met. She is genuinely nice and earned us loads of positive online reviews. 



We will all miss her unabashed love for the holiday season, her adorable gifts, her sense of humor, her unfailing ability to see the bright side of EVERYTHING, her endless ramblings on Disneyland, favorite foods, restaurants, Star Wars, and her beloved husband Ben. 
We will miss Toby, a lot. 

Rachael's last day is Tuesday the 26th, so if you have a chance to come by this week and bid her farewell I bet she would really appreciate it.
