This past week, my team at Automattic – the Theme Team, met in Montréal for a week of work, planning for the future and team bonding. We worked hard, had fun and charted a path for the future of the team.

Sadly, I didn’t take as many photos as I normally do. My phone started acting up. It turns out, its battery went bad. The entire phone became swollen and mostly inoperable. 🙁 But I did take a few.

Real poutine (fries, gravy, cheese curds and bacon).

I’m excited to get the projects we worked on launched soon. I’m more excited for the future of our team. It comes with some changes, but I think those will work out in the end.

A collection of ceramics (mugs, cupcakes, robots and more).
We all painted something!

We went to a few activities as a team, including a spoken story event, painting ceramics and more. As much as I love my work, I love my team even more.
