good on paper

My little corner of the internet, to share life, style, and photos.

This year...

2017 has held many ups and downs. This year held joy unimaginable and some sorrows we did not expect. Some anger with the world we expected, some kindness from the world we also did not expect. I'm trying to focus on the good, the learning, the new - and plan ahead for next year. Here's a peak into the past year of life. 

This year...

We went to Germany, Spain, and Portugal for the very first time (also traveled with so many friends for the first time!).

I worked from home for the year, and started a new position that allowed me to work with really amazing brands such as Nike, Adidas, The Arrivals, PowerBar,  Timberland, Haagen Dazs, Strava, Oakley, and more.

We got a pup and named him Booker! The addition of Booker in our lives has been much more difficult than we expected, but has brought so much joy into our lives. He has often reminded us to get out of bed and out of the house, even when we don't want to.

I went to Oakland 10+ times and worked with the tightest team I've had the pleasure of working with yet.

Went to New York for the first time, stayed in the Ace Hotel, and met with a bunch of people who work for more really dope brands.

Took a pottery class, fell in love, and bought a wheel. Now apprenticing for a kickass woman in town and loving every moment of it. (Even when I'm a super dorky nervous wreck.)

Didn't camp near enough, but definitely got in the annual trip.

Had the pleasure of seeing some of my favorite people start dating, and took a best friend trip to Arizona.

Summered really hard - dinners outdoors, lots of stoop hangs, and plenty of foursquare.

Took a friends trip to Albuquerque to visit our dear baby Jacob.

Managed to see my best friend more times this year than in quite a long time. Thankful for her goodness and the light she brings to my life.

Our house started to feel like our home. We are now on year 2 of living in this place, and are ready to really make it ours. (Yes, I know, we're slow.)

Hammocked. A lot.

And spent a lot of time reflecting on life, death, and the passing of time.

Thanks for being what you were, 2017. But I'm pretty fucking ready for 2018.
