It’s been a really lovely week over here, full of a lot of catching up on our to-do lists, some fun meetings, and our Studio Manager Chelsea’s birthday (see above, with us all dressed up). As our staff grows, there are more and more of our team members that you don’t see on the regular, because their main job is not writing for the site. But the women on the APW team are such a delight, and make my work life so enjoyable. So let me introduce you (from left to right) to Diana our new Marketing Associate (also a balloon installation artist), Chelsea our Studio Manager (also a florist), and you know, boring old me and Maddie.
How was your week? Hit it.
