Here is a post of full of nothing but adorable photos of my dog…
This past week, I reached the grand finale of a number of really important work initiatives, and I think it’s only fair that I now catalogue a great big heaping antidote to all the stress I’ve been experiencing (and complaining about) for the past nine months or so.
Because it was an INCREDIBLE week. I am on a high right now. Continue reading
It’s the one year anniversary.
One year ago today – August 3, 2015 – I started my new job, as Community Engagement Manager for Adobe’s Digital Media business.
Trent and I closed on our vacation home. Our dream a-frame mountain party house, on the Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevada.
That was a big day. I had a lot going on. But believe it or not, one year later, I have even more going on now.
Like… evening art-making workshops on iPads with child cancer patients and Creative Collisions at The Tech Museum in San Jose and media rollouts for our new Adobe Studio and interview requests from national press and travel orders from my VP and travel orders from my family and my 20 year high school reunion (EEK!) and preparations for Adobe MAX and preparations for Labor Day at the cabin and judging weekend for the ADAA…
In short, I feel like this:

A little wild.

Trent and I celebrated five years of marital bliss this past weekend.
It really has been bliss, but looking back, I just can’t believe how much life we’ve packed into five years. It’s way more than I ever expected; getting Sam, and buying our first home, and me changing jobs TWICE, and Trent changing jobs for the first time in FOREVER, and then buying our SECOND home… Not to mention all the travel (six countries in five years and who knows how many states!), and all the friends we’ve watched get married, and all the babies we’ve welcomed, and the three beloved grandparents we’ve buried…
Our life has been transformed; it’s now beyond anything we could have imagined five years ago.
On top of that, when we made our “official beginning” together, we did it in my hometown, surrounded largely by my friends and family, in my familiar setting; you know – the old-fashioned way. The whole thing looked and felt very “Lisa”:
