Another Automattic Grand Meetup has come and gone. It is always such an amazing, overwhelming, stressful, fun, exciting, unique, and tiring experience. This year was no exception to that. Shortly before the meetup the team I’m on added three new people. That is exciting, always fun to get to meet and hangout with more awesomeContinue reading “2017 Automattic Grand Meetup”
Monday evening we wearily rolled into our yard for the first time in a month. It was early morning July 7 when we piled into our SUV and started out on our cross country road trip covering 5 Canadian Provinces and 15 US States. What wonderful experiences and memories we made. Spending so much timeContinue reading “Epic Road Trip 2017”
This is the third year for these peonies from my Great Grandmother and each year they keep getting bigger and more blossoms. I love them! ❤️ I just wish my lawn was doing as well.

Yesterday was Day 1 and had a note for Jen. Today was a note for me. Jen warned me hers made her cry so IContinue reading “Christmas Notes”
Today is my oldest sisters birthday! I’d make fun of her for getting old, but seeing as I’m her older brother that probably wouldn’t work very good. We had a fun time celebrating her with her tonight and trying to recreate her first birthday. Here she is at age 1 and then some years afterContinue reading “Happy Birthday Tiffany!”
Last night I arrived home from this years Automattic Grand Meetup which was held in mountainous Whistler Village in British Columbia. The crisp air, scenery, and mouth watering food all add to the experience, but as always it’s the people that make it special. One example of this shows itself when I gave my flashContinue reading “Happy Birthday Noah: A Flash Talk”
We’re taking a morning walk along the waterfront and Noah looks out and says Look there is a trail of brightness across the water!
