…whoa. I never imagined it would be a week before I could post…but the internet was just installed Saturday. and we had things to do … like make a very last-minute appearance at her company picnic! yep, I got to see her office and the rest of the Epic campus from the inside (2 dots on my fitbit!). Sara’s team is located in the lower level of The Barn (part of Farm Campus which is three buildings – the Barn, the Stables and the Shed). It’s decorated in a farm theme on the inside, too. There are sheep that apparently move to new spots each night and a conference room with cowhide upholstery on the chairs. Here’s her building
and Sara’s office (she shares with another new hire).
and then it was Sunday. I started writing this sitting at the airport (with a glass of wine and a most sympathetic bartender) with the idea I’d post before my flight…and then as soon as we landed. And now it’s Monday. I’m back at my kitchen counter. I still haven’t written much. So I’m just going to share a few more photos and trust that I’ll find my voice soon enough.
Sara’s apartment is just off Monroe Street in a neighborhood her company orientation calls “yuppie”. fair assessment. and honestly great for this mama to imagine when I’m not there. The building is brand new (hence the delay in internet … I’m not sure anyone else in the building has internet either). She’s on the third floor with a through-the-trees and south-facing lake view. I took these photos yesterday morning. This is the view from Sara’s back porch.
And here’s the inside. This is the main living room (the kitchen is off to the left).
We hung a few pictures yesterday morning, including these prints of cities Sara’s visited. These are on the wall behind the dining table.
Here’s the kitchen.
and the bathroom (with another picture we hung yesterday).
(sorry, no photos of the bedroom…Sara hasn’t quite gotten everything together there!)
We went out for brunch yesterday…and I’m delighted I have a smiling two-of-us to share.
It was a full week. I’m glad I was there to help her unpack and settle in. even just a little bit. Madison is a great town and Epic seems like a great company. I’m planning another trip back in February. We’ll see how I handle the snow!
