The Best Year Of My Life

WOW. One word to describe 2015

I can't believe we have a couple more days of the year!

2015 was a good year. Honestly, I think it was the best year of my life. Out of the short 24 years I've lived, this year was insane compared to the rest. If you have been following me for the last year, BIG THANK YOU for supporting and encouraging Cory and I. You all are amazing. I think this is an appropriate time to share everything that has happened this last year with our careers and major personal life events. So here it goes.

The most exciting thing that has happened this last year is when Cory and I got married on September 12! This day was BEYOND magical and dreamy. Excited to share that it will be featured on Green Wedding Shoes next month! Read our wedding story here.  (photos by Benj Haisch)

After that... we moved to sunny Los Angeles! It's been so much fun setting up a new home together, exploring new areas, and being inspired differently everyday. A house/office tour will be coming soon, I promise! Here are some photos from our time in LA!

WE LOVE DISNEYLAND!

Fitness is huge to me. This last year I have ran over 700 miles. So insane to think about how much your mind plays a role in working out. Especially running. After a year of running straight, I reached an all-time goal. For some people, this is not very much. For myself, it's huge. And it's felt so good to be able to say I have ran 7 miles. My goal for 2016 is 10 miles, or more! Over the last five years I have lost 35 pounds, gone down two dress sizes, have become so much stronger, and I feel so much better. Eating healthy and staying fit is such an important thing for your body. Love your body, and love yourself.  

Also, we have been able to travel quite a bit. Going to New York City for the Shorty Awards, back and forth from LA to San Francisco for work/play, traveling from Richmond, VA all the way up to Maine for Lincoln Motor Co, adventuring all over the Pacific Northwest, and even going to Mexico. Here are just some images from those trips and memories!

As for clients, one of the coolest was seeing some of Cory's images in the Apple World Gallery. Such a crazy thought that so many people around the world saw his images in magazines, billboards, online, etc. What a rewarding thing, and it's something we would have never thought to happen. We are big Apple nerds and use all Apple products. So being able to be apart of that was a dream, and very surreal. 

Also, throughout this last year we have had the opportunity to work with a few different car companies. Acura at Sundance Film Festival, Volvo at Coachella, and Lincoln Motor Co. What a thrilling and amazing experience for each one of these jobs. A year ago at this time I would have never thought we would have worked with those companies, and such amazing teams. Each one was different and exciting in their own ways.  Some of my favorite clothing brands I've worked with this year was Nordstrom, Sperry x Teen Vogue, Kate Spade New York, Missguided, Gap, Uniqlo, Urban Outfitters, Acuvue, and more.

These all have been great companies to work with, and we can't wait to see what this next year brings! So many fun memories and amazing things happened, and we feel so blessed.

Happy New Year! Hope you all have had an amazing year!
