Work Out Loud: September 26-30—Come Share What You’re Working on This Week! 🥳

Hi all! :wave: Hope everyone’s having a great week so far. Just a note: I won’t be posting a Work Out Loud thread next week, as I’m off and busy traveling for the next week and a half to celebrate a friend’s wedding and my birthday!

This Week’s Featured Tweet:

Did you see the news that Alex Vasquez, Pantheon Hero and the Principal of DigiSavvy, has been named our September 2022 Community Champion?! :tada: Check out our forum announcement to read more about Alex’s contributions to the Pantheon and open source communities, and congratulate him if you haven’t yet!

Now, let’s get right to it! For those of you who are new here: Work Out Loud is a weekly opportunity to share what we’re working on, who we’re meeting with, and what we’re doing in our free time. There are no rules here—share whatever you’d like!

What I am Most Excited About…
:airplane: Currently on my way to Lisbon, Portugal for a friend’s wedding! I’m excited to see my friend, meet her friends/new folx, and get back to traveling! I’ll definitely share some photos in two weeks when I’m back in the office.
