How was your week? Mine was…very full, hence the late post! I’m heading out to Europe soon and while there’s going to be some pleasure mixed in, it’s mostly a business trip packed with four Blogcademy dates, a mixer party, filming new projects with two sets of videographers and squeezing in a few photo shoots. First up, London. Then, Berlin, followed by Amsterdam and finally, New York. Whew!
With all that time away, there’s a lot of prep that comes with keeping businesses running like delivering client work and pre-scheduling a lot of blog posts. I love it, though. In between sitting at my desk, I’ve been going out to lunch every week with my grandparents (they’re the BEST people on the planet) and visiting ancient dive bars with my dad — my family always whisks me away on awesome, unexpected adventures.
Oh, I should point out the “You’re awesome” postcard in that top photo. My friend Sian just sent me a care package of goodies and she has the best handwriting. I wish mine looked like that!
Packing, packing and more packing…trying to balance the fun with the practical. Always a challenge.
This year hasn’t been easy but it’s been the best on a personal level. I’ve grown a lot and learned to push fear aside — I’ve never been more content just doing my own thing, choosing who I work with, hanging out with my family and traveling in between it all. My life now is very unconventional compared to the way it was but it feels right. Let’s be real here — I do still get those moments where my stomach drops and I ask myself what the hell I’m doing but they’re much fewer and far between now.
This isn’t the greatest photo but I had to share it! As I walked into the St. Paul Rodeo bar last weekend, I noticed that the taxidermy was covered in bras. Haha. Good times! Have an awesome weekend, everyone. I’m off to finish packing! xoxo
