We’ve grown over 30% this year, and today is our first day in our newly expanded office space!

The smell of fresh paint combined with vapors from the newly installed charcoal carpet normally would cause me to evacuate, but now they elicit a mix of excitement, awe, anxiety, gratitude and nostalgia. This is the fourth time we’ve been under construction to propel our growth, but this one is different.

The office we took over isn’t any ordinary office space – It’s the original “Suite 301” I leased for Sandstorm before I had any staff. I remember having one desk in that space, and purchasing a second so I would be encouraged to fill it. With this expansion, we’ve added a second conference room, six 3-foot dandelion lights hanging from our 15-foot ceilings, and many more desks for us to fill in 2015.

We have come full circle from humble beginnings. Looking back, I am in awe of the inspiring and amazingly talented people I get to work with.

As we head into the Holiday Season, I invite you to follow us these next 24 days as we share our “advent”ures and memories from 2014.

Interested in reminiscing with us?
