Wednesday Weekly #80

Happy Wednesday, makers!  It has been a very eventful week so far! The company I work for got acquired this week and our small team of 7 is joining forces with a team of 2000! I am very happy for new opportunities and experiences – big things lie ahead! Soon we will be moving offices and I will have a ‘smart casual’ dress code. No more yoga pants at work for me!  I usually dress very casual at work, so I may be in need of some more business appropriate blouses and trousers now – expect more of that on the blog in the coming months!
