2014 | ADVENTURES

For one minute, walk outside, stand there in silence, look up at the sky,
and contemplate how amazing life is.

2014 was a pretty spectacular year; bringing me to New Orleans, The Riviera Maya, Yosemite National Park, Big Sur, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Arches National Park & Moab, Salt Lake City, all over Bulgaria, Greece, Istanbul & Cappadocia Turkey, St Petersburg & Moscow, NYC, northern Wisconsin, back to NYC, the Boundary Waters, the Apostle Islands, NYC yet again, Boston, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Budapest, Vienna, Sydney, Bali, Tokyo, and finally back to NYC one last time.

I am so grateful for the adventures I experienced and I am thankful to my husband for coming along or holding down the fort at home when he’s not able to join me (corporate life is tough!). My resolutions for 2015 are to say “yes” to more opportunities, soak it all up, take more adventures close to home, and to worry less. It always seems to work out in the end.

To reach a port we must set sail. Sail, not tie at anchor. Sail, not drift.
―Franklin D. Roosevelt

I’m so excited for Betsy & Charley as they begin a new adventure as husband and wife! Their classic and timeless wedding was personalized in the sweetest of ways- lots of nautical touches for these two sailors including tables named after clubs where they’ve sailed, maritime flags, a bogey, and a vintage map of Lake Minnetonka used in the stationery that set the tone for their day. After marrying at a small and intimate church, the newly minted spouses climbed aboard a waiting boat, and waved at their guests on shore as they departed for Woodhill Country Club across the lake.
