This past September, Automattic held it’s annual Grand Meetup – where the entire company (located all around the world) gets together in one location to talk about past and future goals, work on some fun projects, and hang out with each other.
This year, we went to Whistler, BC Canada. I absolutely loved it! The hotels were right in the village so it felt like we were still a part of everything going on in the surrounding area. Last year, in Park City, UT, it felt like we were much more secluded … it felt kind of like The Shining.
The food options were very good, the activities available were really fun, and the scenery overall was amazing!
** As usual, I’m a couple months behind on this post. I’ve been pretty bad at being on top of things here, lately. Trying to get better at that!

A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to travel to NYC for a short work trip. It was my first time visiting the city so I spent a bit of time one morning exploring as much as I could. All of my time there was spent in Manhattan (aside from a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge one evening) but I absolutely loved it … much more than I ever imagined I would!
Last month, Team 51 (the team I am a part of at Automattic) had it’s first-ever official team meetup. We chose San Francisco because half of the team lives there so it made things a little easier to plan. Plus, it’s an awesome city anyway! We even took a little day-trip up to Napa Valley for a little bit of wine tasting! That was especially exciting because it was my first time to Napa.
