A Quick 2018 Recap

Its been almost 2 years since I’ve blogged and it feels very odd to even attempt to do this again. Even now I’m truly at a loss for words. One thing I do know, however, is I miss sharing my life with people. I miss sharing my photos and experiences online. 2017 and 2018 were a whirlwind and it had a lot to do with the fact that I got into a serious relationship and then got married. But it also had to do with me shifting into a new career, making new friends, enjoying old friends, building out my van… just… life haha. But now that the period of transition seems to be settling a bit I thought I’d get back into sharing my life with all of you! Let me recap 2018 for you so I can catch you up on the goings on in my life… The ups and the downs.

2018

January: Clay asked me to marry him. I said yes :)

February: Rita (my van… my home) broke down and was in the shop for 2 weeks 10 hours away from my usual stomping grounds.

March: Spent the month working and trying to fix what the terrible mechanic ruined on Rita…

April: Started feeling a little more normal. Yosemite. Wedding Planning.

May: Working/Wedding Planning.

June: Working/ Wedding Planning…

July: Quit Job. Moved to the east bay full time.

August: All my camera gear and hard drives were stolen. My best friend from Australia, Oliver, came to CA

September: Uncle Louis passed away… Clay and I got married!

October: Honeymoon in Japan and Korea

November: Started developing myself and own career. Oliver left.

December: Moved into a new house with Clay and some friends. Made goals or 2019.

So those are just the highlights of each month… It was a great year but it definitely wasn’t the easiest either… I’m happy I can look back at it now and am no longer IN IT. I learned a lot about myself and my work in 2018. I made mistakes (backup your computer and its content in two separate places people) and am learning from them. I started this year feeling ready for 2019. I actually felt like I was standing on my own two feet and could take whatever was going to come for me. I’m surrounding by inspirational, supportive, and amazing people that give me life. I’m married to an incredible person and do not know how I got so dang lucky. And I actually feel like I am finding my stride in photo and video.

I can honestly say that right now… I am happy.

I plan on sharing a whole lot more here. Once per week is my goal. Whether its just a small story, an update, or maybe even a DIY project? Who knows! Possibilities are endless. What do you guys want to hear more about?

If you’d like to keep up with me more, I post almost everyday on my Instagram @whiskeyandmud.

If you’d like to work with me whether you’d like some pictures taken, your business promoted, or to just sit down and have a coffee with me, send me an email! I’d love to hear from you all.

I hope you have all been doing well these last couple of years!
