We are all so weird. In our last two team meetings the following happened: finger guns were aimed, "cheerio" was used as a greeting, purple hair made an appearance, few bras were worn, and Kenny Loggins was referenced on more than one occassion. This is all fairly normal for our crew, because we each gave up on being cool a long time ago. Instead we are learning to delight in what makes us weird because that's where connections are made, our love for one another is deepened, and our genius shines. This week, we hope that you can be your weird self and know that you are appreciated just as you are.
