Well we certainly had our day in the sun last week (speaking of the 100th post celebration) and you all brought the sunshine! I asked for you to help us evolve this blog with some of your ideas, thoughts and comments and you certainly responded (29 comments and counting!). I want to thank you for that because without all of you, well – that just defeats the purpose, now doesn’t it?
The best thing we heard from you was that you love how “real” the blog is. We couldn’t be more happy to hear that! I know I was feeling a little apprehensive about writing for this blog - what style would I write in? what would my “voice” be? would my writing connect with people? After I stopped overthinking everything, I started being myself. And that’s what I’ve advised the other contributors to do as well. Just be yourself – be real – and you’ll connect with people. Not everybody but that’s OK too. But those you connect with will stick around and it sounds like a lot of you are here to stay and that’s appreciated – A LOT.
So now on to the good stuff- the stuff you all wanted us to write about, do, show, explain, etc. First up – a suggestion from Stephanie at Metropolitan Mama. Stephanie wanted to get a little sneak peek inside Graco. This is an easy one so here are some pictures of our building, inspirational quotes around the office, our lobby, our mommy parking (my DH parks here when he brings the kids to visit anyway!), and some cute kid pics we have around the office as well.
Oh and since you want us to keep it real, here’s a picture of my messy (I had to straighten up just a little!) and rather uninspiring cube. As I said, thank goodness for all your sunshine- I don’t even have a window! Happy Friday everyone.
