Not a video game, not a comic, not a band, but an amazing adventure continues...

I can't believe I haven't updated this for nearly 6 months!  So crap.  It has been really crazy busy though.   So best get updating.

I actually wrapped up work at my previous company in February and moved on to a new one.  I am now the Operations Director of US for The Creative Engagement Group.  Office is in center city Philly so no need to move and all is going great so far.  My one last gig at MC3 included a stop in Denver.  Had a great big long dinner with everyone and even spent a few days past the gig hanging in the Mountains.  All amazing.

 We took a trip to Golden, Colorado, home of Coors Beer.  Such a Ye Olde Mountain Town!

I ended up with a week off in between the old job and new job, and it happened to be when Tom Davies was in town.  He came to the house in Philly.  We spent time in the city, went up to Lititz to visit our Tait friends and managed to get some ice skating in too.  I made sure to make him some lovely home cooked meals, and we even watched the Oscars.  As per usual, lovely to have the guests.
Then it was off to the new job.  I did a week in the Philly office before heading off for about 2.5 weeks to visit their offices in the UK.  I spent a bit of time in Manchester, Plymouth and London.  Got to visit a few friends (Bex Hanbury and Yuliya) in Covent Garden.  Learned a lot about the business and headed back to Philly to get started!

I did manage to get out to Dave & Julie Klappert's house for little Demi's first birthday.  It was a cute day.  This was definitely my fav photo.
 I got to one of the finals games of the 76ers.  We won that series but lost to the Raptors later on.  I will be feeling better if Toronto wins it all.  Next year 76ers and Ben Simmons!
I dropped down to Memphis for a weekend to visit Sara Van Aernum.  I went to National Civil Rights Museum where MLK, Jr was shot.  It was pretty impressive.  We walked all over downtown on a bit of a murder mystery game.  Got to eat some yummy Memphis BBQ, stopped into the Peabody Hotel and hung out on Beale Street.  We also saw NKOTB, Salt N Pepa and others at a hilarious flashback concert.  All good times!

Then I had a couple weekends in a row of travelling.  I hit up Chicago for a work trip.  45,000 people in Chicago for this one event.  It was massive.  Made it back in time to get to Dave and Amanda's lovely outdoor wedding.  Luckily the reception was indoors because it poured with rain afterwards.  The following weekend was a wedding in Milwaukee for my lovely cousin Elora.  Got to see a lot of the family which was nice.

I honestly think that brings us up to just about now.  I am sure more things happened than just these photos, but a lot of the past few months has been about the new job.  As it turns out, I will probably travel a bit less, but I am looking forward to that.  I am away for most of July on the big Ireland trip, so really counting the days until that. 
I am thinking about potentially having some kind of get together for the big birthday this year.  All of you would be invited.  Am thinking maybe around Labor Day (1 Sept).  Let me know who is around.
Lots of love,
Sarah xo
