Turtle Park, just south of Forest Park. So few people know about it!

Favorite memory at The Mission Continues:
One team dinner, a few veteran staff members shared some funny anecdotes about the earlier days of The Mission Continues. I loved hearing all of the unique challenges the development team faced, like Lyndsey having to physically own an $80,000 car, and how well they handled those opportunities. It makes me excited to face future possibilities head-on, and hopefully with as much grace as my team.
Cupcakes of any kind (chocolate preferred, though)
