    Trip: Montreal

    On Thursday evening we decided we needed to get away. The options within reasonable driving distance are fairly limited, but we settled on CANADA this time. You should see the kids’ passport photos. So ridiculously cute. We swiftly booked a pretty sweet (minus poor maintenance and trendy budget finishes [think: design by Wayfair]) 2-bedroom hotel […]

  • Book: The Manager’s Path

    Early in my job hunt, I came across a “local” role as a Quality Manager. It was advertised as still involving some IC work so it seemed like a great way to test the waters of management. Ultimately I wasn’t selected for lack of management experience, but it did get me thinking about my journey, […]
