Looking back on 2017, I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I’ve met a ton of new people, been to many new places, and had some great new experiences.
Europe was amazing. I mean what can I say. The trip was a trip of a lifetime. I’m so glad we got to go see three cities in the span of 9 days. Yes they were just glimpses but I’m glad I got to go!
I went on two trips by myself for both work and fun. TwitchCon was a BLAST. I was a little apprehensive because I was by myself. Previously in July I went to the Letterworks Calligraphy conference in Utah and had some of my friends with me. But at TwitchCon I was alone. It was fun making new friends and having a great time nerding out. I barely had time to meet all the artists participating in the Artist alley(considering I was only there for two days). If I can, I’d go back just to meet up again with all my new peeps.
The first trip I went to by myself was the Letterworks calligraphy conference in Utah. That was seriously awesome. All the people that attended were exactly like my friends in my guild. So friendly and welcoming. Everyone was so patient and willing to help you out if you were new to calligraphy. I learned a ton and met some awesome people that I hope to keep in touch with.
This year was definitely the year of travel. Cancun at the start of the year, Denver, Ogden, Long Beach, Paris, London, Rome, Las Vegas, and Vancouver! So many fun places and memories! I’m so very thankful to have been able to travel as much as I have and with a great travel partner, my husband Charles. I love you!
This upcoming year my resolution is to keep a better schedule. My schedule was a little hairy at the end there but I hoping to keep it together more consistently this year.
I really can’t say how amazing this past year was. And I’m thankful for all the wonderful memories. Cheers to 2017 and onto 2018!
