Working on some new dance moves.

When life gives you bottles of wine, you drink them! I just spent the most delightful day teaching a design leadership training at a Google offsite in Napa. The day started with a morning run around Yountville where I spotted a hot air balloon, vineyards, and the French Laundry "garden" (it's huge!). It ended with a bottle* of a blend that the team made at a local winery yesterday. I'm not including photos of the workshop because, in all honesty, why bother when I've got wine and hot air balloons to share instead :) In all, not a bad day! I know, I've got the hardest job on the planet. *I didn't drink the entire bottle.

"This!" This is how Max asks us to read him stories. Today, he moved on from 1970s postmodernism to 1980s feminist criticism. That's what happens when I store my old film school books within toddler reach :)

Yesterday, I keynoted my first ever Boston UXPA conference *and* received a lego business card from an attendee. Achievements unlocked.

Hogwarts is in Manchester! Kind of. Harry Potter was partially filmed here. It was pretty surreal walking through the corridors and recalling where different scenes were shot.

‪Today, I had the pleasure of giving a company-wide keynote and team training at Logitech, Switzerland on one gorgeous campus. What a treat!‬ The views and friendly faces *almost* made up for missing Max's birthday. We'll celebrate it this weekend. He'll never know the difference :)

When in Stockholm... I waited in line for an hour to get into the ABBA Museum and it was totally worth it. They have human/CGI ABBA simulations. You're encouraged to go on stage and *be* ABBA with a screen-projected image. It's pretty neat. And people get really into it! And dance! A lot!
