HIT office

One week ago we welcomed our friends, family, and colleagues to the new HIT office in the Dominion and a new chapter for our agency. The Boerne Chamber of Commerce did a phenomenal job of orchestrating the whole event, and it’s easy to tell that they do this every single week! We enjoyed light bites and bubbly from Jason Dady Catering, and Cultivate & Bloom dropped off a GORGEOUS Hand-Tied Bouquet which you can see in the photos below made the perfect centerpiece for the conference room!

I’m also so happy (most) of our HITsters were able to be in attendance for the event, from Account Manager Leia, to Account Coordinators Susan and Megan, and our newest addition Account Coordinator Saige, who also served as our photographer for the day! I love that she captured so many smiling faces from the day, because I left my phone on my desk at some point and didn’t pick it back up until the event was over!

Perhaps my favorite memento from the day is the actual ribbon itself, which all the guests signed with sweet notes and is currently draped across the shelving in my HIT office. It will forever serve as a special  reminder of all the kind folks who took time out of their busy work days to celebrate this milestone for Haute in Texas. While we’ve been in business for 8 years, it’s been such a blessing to feel the momentum building over the last few years!

Do you have an office or do you prefer 100% working from home? I have to say, kind of love having the best of both worlds. There’s still a couple private offices left in our building, so if you’re looking for a new (business) home, let me know!
