Last year Houstonia Magazine did a comfort foods issue […]

Toast Ambassador

The other day I needed to sign up for a Google Apps email through WordPress.com to use at work, which meant getting a new domain first, and soooooooo: Welcome, ToastAmbassador.com to the Internet! 😀 (I’m sarah@ there.) I really love toast, and my name is an alias for the cute toast emoji (look!) in our Automattic Slack.

Chat & Cookies & Plans

I snacked on some treats from a recent Try the World delivery today while helping users in WordPress.com live chat. Pictured: Chocolate Truffles from Truffette de France (Canada), Orange Gingersnaps from Nyåkers (Sweden), Sablés à la confiture d’Abricot from Orientines (Morocco). I’ll share a full review of the subscription box soon. This morning the plumbers came by […]
