My wife and I are considering planning a trip to Tulum, Mexico for late July. She’s slightly reserved in asking her employer (she works at a dental practice) if it’s okay to take time off with the concern her employer may feel off-put by the request. I personally hate the thought of someone else restricting my ability to make my own decisions, but also want to be contieous of others concerns as well. I feel at some point we all will be in a similar situation - to where we want to go do...
Going on vacation to Europe. Looking for comfortable shoes that won’t hurt from walking all day, don’t look ugly (with nice dresses/clothes), and can perhaps even be considered for wearing to nice places (eg dinner, bars). Probably asking for a lot here but please let me know suggestions! Don’t want to take 4 pairs of shoes for a one week trip 🙂

My wife has had complications with her pregnancy recently, so I've been taking advantage of my unlimited PTO to stay at the hospital. My boss has begun complaining that it's been too frequent and the team needs me. How do I balance being there for my wife and my team?

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
