SUMMER VACATION

It appears I inadvertently took a summer vacation from blogging! Although I hate that I let myself slip out of the habit, I had a wonderful, busy summer.

Plattan Plus in GrapeSince I work in marketing, it’s probably not a surprise that my department is dominated by women. We all get along pretty well, and many of us are friends outside of work, so we are a chatty bunch. While I enjoy my co-workers’ company, the level of friendliness is directly proportionate to the volume of the department.

I also work in a cubicle.

SHOW & TELL | AWARD SUBMITTAL

APWA_Pages.jpgToday was a wild day. It felt more like a Monday than a Friday: producing an advertisement, churning out two drafts of proposals and kicking off a third, while doggie-paddling to keep my inbox under control.
