**Blogging while watching the Cubs** #gocubsgo
So my sister posted her first blog about her travel adventures and it reminded me it has been so long since I blogged - and so much has been going on!
My new organization (gTech) has orientation for all new gTech-ers where they fly everyone from around the world to California for the week. I met so many interesting people from all over (Dublin, Hong Kong, Boulder) and learned a lot about this HUGE org I have joined. (It's like a mini company within Google - we do SO MUCH). Picture blow: my gTech co-hort. I'm right there in the middle. I also was able to meet all my teammates that sit in the Bay Area. I have talked to most of them over video conferencing but it was great to meet them face-to face. Next picture is us all at lunch. and MOST IMPORTANTLY I got to see and hangout with my Google bff: Allie. We started together in Austin on the same day and use to be inseparable, until I moved to Chicago and she moved to California. Bottom pic: us at the 49ers game. My heart was happy after this trip. :)
Kyle's sister, Maggie, came into the city to celebrate her birthday. We had dinner at a neighborhood brewery, played games, drank morning mimosas and had lots of shot. It was perfect. So glad to be closer so we can be part of these family memories.
Last but definitely not least: Our home is complete and the couch drama is over. See picture below. We are a happy, nappy family.
