With all of the sleeping and client work I’ve been doing, my resolution and my recap have been a little delayed.
(Plus, James is sick! Super sore throat! Sleeping all day! Orange Juice IV drip!)
But here we go. On the recap part. The resolution part will come tomorrow.
You’ve already heard about the whole pregnancy thing, but other items of note from 2007 include:
An amazing South by Southwest.
This year, I was able to share the trip to Austin with husband James. He had just as good a time as I did. SXSW blew my mind and opened a whole new future for my company. I learned so much about the future of the online space.
We went to Quebec for a week!
We took a great trip to Canada for gorgeous Jorge and Julie’s wedding. I finally got to see Niagara Falls and it was awesome.
With a new direction from my talented friend Natalie, our little Cheesewhizzes group has taken on a new life. Burgundy, Champagne, Piedmont — new places, new cheeses and new dishes have grown our little group from 10 to 40. We’ve taken it on the road and taken it home.
This week’s Cheesewhizzes is our fanciest yet. We’ve even hired transportation!
A summer Midwest tour
I was able to take a summertime trip home whereupon I visited my family, went to BlogHer, crashed my 10 year college reunion and made it to my gorgeous friend Alyca’s wedding reception on the lake. I love going back to Wisconsin in the summer and this trip was no exception.
I quit my job and started my own company!
Probably, the biggest, most exciting part of 2007 finds me pushed out of a job that was a terrible fit for me.
And thank God for that.
Maplevine has been a joy and a joy and a joy.
I absolutely adore my clients,
I love the work that I get to do and
my blood pressure has been normal for the first time in ages.
Bocce, bocce, bocce
This year James and I got even more involved with our bocce team, Joanie Loves Bocce. Between our team track jackets and food themes, everything got better. Our playing got better and our team is even more tight. Go Joanie!
Yes, there was heartache this year. Yes, I spent a good deal of it crying.
But I’m tougher, I’m more sympathetic and eagerly anticipating all the changes to come.
After all of that, am I sure I want to write some resolutions?
