17 Kickass things that happened in 2017
Inspired by Veronica Foster we started a gratitude jar this year. It’s packed away in storage right now - moving its way slowly across the country with coast guard movers so I’m left to list the moments I’m grateful for with my feeble memory. They are grouped in no particular order and naturally given the nature of gratitudes there are way more than 17 things, sometimes I find that when I get started they all just come spilling out.
I watched my little brother graduate from the LA Police Academy and watched Kaleigh graduate from Officer Candidate School #21/72 in her class.
I photographed the Nordic World Cup Finals in Quebec City for the U.S. Ski Team and later in the year photographed nordic skiing olympian Jessie Diggins for one of her sponsors
I shot 6 weddings.
I filmed and photographed 15 hotel experiences for Lark Hotels in 7 weeks. (You can watch the videos HERE)
The team Powers Posse kicked ass in the Portland Cotopaxi Questival.
I became obsessed with rock climbing and had a lot of firsts on cliffs in New Hampshire. First sport lead, first 5.10c first climb in the dark… and made a half dozen new best friends.
