20 reasons it was the best year ever.
For many people, 2017 has been the worst year of the century, I get it. Our nation, divided and argumentative, has created a frightened climate and the simple routine of waking up to check Facebook, can be morning nightmare.
But as I take my 31st rotation around the sun, and start my day with a view of San Francisco, I’m counting my many blessings of the year in review. Here are 20 reasons why 30 was the best year of my life (according to my phone in chronological order).
1.) I hosted my first charity event and raised $50K for SheLift and Globathon with Ashley Iaconetti
2.) I made friends like Jocelyn who came to LA to support #GoinUpGirlsNight
3.) I hosted a Yoga class in Minneapolis
4.) I met Clare Scheller, and helped her get back on Skis for the first time in 10 years since losing her leg to Cancer.
5.) I skied 37 perfect blue bird days.
6.) I held more puppies.
7.) I had another year of friendship with Phil.
9.) I bought a camera
10.) I read more, and ate cupcakes more.
11.) I took detours
13.) I marched.
14.) I met Dylan
15.) 7 beautiful young women took a chance on SheLit for the inaugural SheLift ski retreat
16.) I made changes.
17.) I flew in a cessna plane
18.) I visited 7 National parks
19.) I learned new things
20.) I gained 90 pounds.
Thank you all for being the silver linings in 2017 and making 30 the best year of my life. I'll be forever grateful for your continued support and encouragement to be a stronger, more daring version of myself.
