Today has been a great day of reconnecting with my Barbour family. Working from home most of the time has one drawback—not getting to see my coworkers nearly as often. So I really look forward to my days in the office, and today did not disappoint. I came in especially for a company-wide meeting for which our wonderful executive team cooked a delicious breakfast. We periodically have these meetings just to update all employees on any other general Barbour news. Our executive team was happy to report that business is good—that’s what we like to hear! :)
Becky, Susan, and I also met to just chat about new fiction ideas, vent and sympathize over shared editor frustrations, and plan for the upcoming ACFW conference. We can’t believe it’s just eight weeks away! We hope we’ll get to connect with many of you in Minneapolis this year. It’s great that modern technology lets us stay connected from miles away, but it’s even better to interact face-to-face once in awhile.
Now, my in-office day is ending, and I’m headed to Canton’s Balloon Classic Invitational, one of my family's favorite summer events. We’re excited to take Jodi for the first time. Her first word after dada and mama was balloon, so we think it’s appropriate! :)
