It is finally time to bid farewell to 2017 and, nearly everywhere I turn, the refrain, “Good riddance!”, rings out. It seems that 2017 was a rough year for just about everyone, myself included. That fact makes writing a tidy year end wrap-up next to impossible. So, instead of even attempting to do so, I am going to choose to focus this post only on the positive aspects of this year, much like our 2017 end of year vlog does.
If you are a longtime reader or follow me on social media, you might have already guessed that, in keeping with all areas of my life, this vlog is full of international travel, adorable puppies, a bit of soccer, and a whole lot of amazing live music, including an entire section shot at Coachella 2017 that we were not able to previously share. More than any prior vlog, this vlog gives a real glimpse into our daily lives, including an official introduction to our new puppy, Flynn! It is not quite as aesthetically stunning as our travel vlogs normally are, but it is 100% us and shares some incredible moments of our year together. I hope you all enjoy our 2017 end of year vlog!
I had a conversation with a dear friend the other day about how the effects of aging are starting to catch up to us. We commiserated about how much less effort it used to take to get out the door in the morning when we were ten years younger, bright eyed with wrinkle free skin. Those were the good old days, weren’t they?
All things considered, I have very much enjoyed entering my thirties and embarking upon the next adventure-filled decade of my life. What’s not to like? I’m happy at home, my career is on track and my life is overflowing with friends, love and puppies. One thing I have not enjoyed, however, are the physical effects of aging, particularly when it comes to the delicate skin around my eyes. Thankfully, I have a secret weapon in my arsenal, VIIcode T2 Oxygen Eye Cream O3.0, to help me look awake and ready to go, even when I’m the exact opposite of that.
