    I don’t have a desk, but we do have a picture board in the back.  I’m not sure he would appreciate his picture being up though.  He’s fairly private.

    Yeah. Everyone has their own cubicle in my office. Right now I only have one pic of the 2 of us from last new years. I want to get a couple more though. It’s nice to see his face during the day. 🙂

    I have a desk, but idk I have never been into personalizing my space in any way. So, I don’t have his picture or anything else like that

    Yep, quite a few. However, we work for the same company so I can walk about 500 feet and see the real thing.

    I’m a law student, so I don’t have a “work” to have a photo at, but I just I had to chime in with a weird story…

    I was interviewing at a law firm a few months ago, and I interviewed with 6 men, and 5 of the six had big 8×10-or-larger photos of their wives’ bridal portraits prominently displayed in big frames in their offices. The 6th guy was pretty young, so it’s likely he wasn’t married. It was so weird. I’ve interviewed at about dozen other firms recently too, and I never saw anything more than a small 3×5 or 5x7ish photo of someone’s wife (other than at that one firm)! 

    I guess it’s nice that they’re so proud of their wives… but it was so weird to me that it seemed to be a cultural thing or something at that firm. Definitely didn’t make me want to work there (I mean… am I going to put a big 8×10 of my husband in a tux up in my office?!?!).

    Hmm well I do have a photo of him that he sent to me on my work email while he was out of town, but it isn’t displayed. It’s in a file on the computer somewhere. However I do have a photograph of my baby sister as my desktop photo, but no other personal items in my office for my own safety.

    I have three picture frames on my desk:

    Haha, I thought you meant “post a picture of your SO at his work”… and I was trying to remember if I had one. 

    No, I only have a picture of my nephews and a sunset in Thailand from a 2006 vacation.

    Yep, I have a few wedding photos and one engagement photo. I love having photos of him here so I can look at him anytime I want. 🙂

    No. Apart from my coffee cup and water bottle I have precisely zero personal items on my desk at work. I’m a fairly private person when it comes to work.

    I have loads of pictures of my nieces and nephews…and one or two of Mr. Mink.  I also have a ton of pictures from past jobs (I work in academia, so that’s no big deal).

    I work with family, so privacy is really a non issue for me! If I worked with strangers I might be less inclined to have so much of my personal life on display.
