In some ways it seems like a small thing, but learning that my employer was making Juneteeth a global holiday felt important.

We want everyone at 1Password to have the opportunity to reflect and learn about racial inequality, so weโ€™re making Juneteenth a paid holiday for our team of 400+ people, across the globe โ€“ our (virtual) offices will be closed on Friday, June 18, 2021. In an effort to educate and inspire action, we shared information on the history/heritage of the holiday and ways 1Password employees can make a difference in their communities.

1Password is making the Juneteeth pledge

Every morning I get up early to spend some quality time with the cat for a bit. Then I retrieve the dogs and take them for a walk.
This is how I found the dogs this morning

Last night we started building The Happy Isles puzzle.
We made good progress but Raquel is very impatient to find out what the “reveal” is and did not like my suggestion that we pick away at the puzzle over the next few days.
