‘Tis the season for friends, family, and just as importantly…food. We here on the tafBlog love this time of the year because of all those reasons. And as the days grow shorter and the weather turns colder (it gets chilly here in Los Angeles too!), we think it gives us a great reason to huddle up next to each other and enjoy some hearty food. So for this past Thanksgiving, tafLA decided to get together with some friends at our main outpost, affectionately dubbed the “Yauhaus”, and share in the festivities. And in true tafLabs fashion, we recorded a video about it!
And for those of you who are sad to have missed out on all the buttery desserts, come join your fellow TAFers Saturday. December 29th in Chicago for TAF New Years! Check out the evite link here: http://www.eventbrite.com/s/byinenivtefor001
Family, friends, and food. What more could you ask for? Happy holidays everyone and we hope to see you December 29th! Happy holidays and Happy New Year!
Well, sort of conference-wide. Shout out to the Juniors Staff for prepping their awesome Juniors Olympics in lieu of being able to make the photo. Comes sized to fit most computers as a desktop wallpaper!

The week is coming to an end. Speaker sessions are wrapping up. Memories were made. Tears were shed. Reflections were developed of how we will carry the lessons we learned throughout the week to redefine our lives. And now we’re ready to shake it off at the dance and savor the last few moments of TAF 2012.
Day 3 of TAF2012! At TAF, we definitely know our way around a serious discussion, but of course we love to have fun too. Lots of workshops, avenues to express creativity (including a script reading facilitated by tafLabs’ very own Theresa!), and dancing to loud noises and colored lights. Hope you enjoy!
It’s day two of TAF 2012. Time for our campers to get into the meat of our weeklong program, with speakers and workshops on identity and other topics running throughout day. But of course there is always time for fun and games (and pie) .
And uploaded before midnight! A new tafLabs record.
