Dreaming Big

For months I’ve been waiting for the moment when I finally got to write a blog about the really, really, really big thing I’ve been doing at work this past year – my first year at Adobe. It’s the biggest thing I’ve taken on yet in my career, truly.

And now, the time has come. I’m cleared for takeoff to talk. I’ve written the blog.

It’s no secret the universe has been good to Trent and I lately: a dream job with an off-the-charts increase in pay and benefits for me, a near-flawless closing on the perfect second home, and just yesterday we got word of yet another promotion and generous raise for Trent (his second in just shy of two years).

Neither of us is one to cling to the material things in life, so all this “stuff going so good” was starting to feel a little… Too good. Like it needed to go back into the universe somehow because, let’s face it folks –

Pride

This week, I did a small thing at work, but something that’s really making me feel tremendously frickin’ good about life and the world right now…

I lead my company and our brand out of the closet.

We’re celebrating Gay Pride for the first time, loudly, in brand content, on social media, and in internal corporate communications.

We have a rainbow logo and everything!
