Tomorrow afternoon, I leave for Orlando, Florida, for a one-week business trip. I work at the home office for Chick-fil-A Inc. in Atlanta as my 9-5 job. I'm on the Media and Technology Team which produces a lot of videos, technology implementation for training, and graphic design (which is what I do!) One of our big roles as a team is to help produce the annual Operators Seminar. This particular event is a huge deal in the CFA world. Every operator from every Chick-fil-A restaurant is invited to attend, as well as corporate staff members. We have an awards show, interesting speakers, a huge EXPO area, and a few surprises here and there. 

My role is to develop the look and feel of the Seminar. From the logo to the walk-in look, I put together most of the designs and develop a "brand standards" guide so we have consistency throughout the event. I'll be there to participate in all of the rehearsals and develop any graphic needs along the way. 

It's going to be a long week, but I'm definitely excited about it, especially now that I'm feeling much better after being sick all weekend. 

If only I could have Jon come with me and we could sneak off to Disney!! -- If only. Jon and I are scheming a potential trip in April, so hopefully that will work out and fill the Disney void for a little while. ;) 

It might be a little quieter than usual on the blog during the next 8 days, but I'm definitely planning on some fun inspirational posts and another 5 Things! I hope you have a wonderful week!
