In-between speaker sessions, we had an opportunity to meet some of the attendees and engage them in our work. For me this meant providing … CONTINUE READING

12/100: Be Eggcellent

12/100 || I’m sorry – I had to. It was just staring me in the face demanding that I do it. So, here ya have it. Being playful seems like it should include a few dad puns in there, no?
