I’ve been working really hard on building a brand new website for my blog. We’re talking loads of customized features. I really love how it’s coming along and can’t wait to show it to you! 

For that reason, I’m going to keep the next few blog posts really short and simple, because I just don’t have that much time to do all of the work that I’m doing plus my full-time job!

Here are some pictures from the Chicago conference where I just gave a presentation. Hope you like them. See you in two weeks!

My sister accompanied me on the trip. 😀

Some Chicago pretzels… didn’t get to try the pizza. These were good!

Here are some of my friends and I just enjoying each other’s company!

Some really cool LED lights above a picnic area. We even saw some fireworks!

And finally… a pic of me giving my talk.
