Nothing like going out of the year with a bang, huh? I had planned on a quiet December, but then life happened, and SVV and I wound up catching a flight pretty last minute on the first of the month. So much for staying homebound!
That set the pace for the next 30 days, and before you know it, December had come and gone.
We stayed in hotels and Airbnbs 13 nights this month, yet it feels like we weren’t home at all! Here’s why…
We went to Washington (D.C., that is). For a Christmas campaign with the Fairmont! I couldn’t have asked for a better work project: Fairmont Hotels and Christmas are two of my favorite things, so combine them in the nation’s capital, and it was a truly magical weekend.
I took SVV to a Garth Brooks concert. It was our second Garth concert together, but first where we were almost on the ground level. Great seats, great show, great Garth.
We holiday’d in Breckenridge. This wasn’t a work trip, but rather my mom’s Christmas gift to all of us (she’s one generous lady!). We spent eight days in Colorado, and it was a great way to close out 2017. And even though I was there for fun, we captured a whole lot of photo and video content from the slopes, so stay tuned for some more Breck planning posts.
We partnered with Google Fiber. In case you missed it, this Nashville murals post might have been one of my most colorful to date! Not to mention, one of the most fun to shoot.
We secured a half dozen new projects for 2018. I feel like all of December was phone call after phone call after meeting after pitch, but it paid off because we have some FUN collaborations on the docket for next year!
None that I can think of! There are always a few idiots one must deal with when an entrepreneur (and there seemed to be a surplus of those this year…), but I’m getting better at tuning them out. I’m just grateful to be healthy, thriving with work and projects (and a husband!) I love, and ready for 2018 to kick off!
