2018 Countdown

2018 Countdown

2018 has flown by and I’m so ready for 2019! This year was filled with traveling, family time, and professional growth. Two years ago I created a countdown post highlighting some of my favorite moments throughout the year, so I thought it would be fun to do that again this year!


This year I was promoted to the South Division Creative Manager at my job. I’ve been working at my company for ten years and it was so exciting to have the opportunity to grow and move up from a Designer role into this position. I oversee an incredible team of Designers, Copywriters and an Editor and my love for my career has been invigorated.


I got to travel so much this year and I’ve loved every minute of it! Some of my trips were work related – Alabama and North Carolina, but I also got to visit Sarasota, Miami and New York with Greg and my family this year. My goal for 2019 is to travel to a new location that I haven’t visited before, but I still don’t know exactly where I’d like to go just yet – maybe a cruise!


Greg and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary at the beginning of December. We initially planned to visit Savannah again, but at the last minute we changed our minds and went to Orlando instead! We walked around Disney Springs, explored Winter Park, and did our first escape room at Escapology. It was a super relaxing anniversary weekend, and we loved it!


The holidays were magical to me this year. We got to spend Christmas with our families and it was adorable seeing my younger cousins getting excited about Santa! We went to ICE! at Gaylord Palms this years for Christmas Day and the theme was A Christmas Story. The day after Christmas we went to Escapology in Orlando and played the Narcos escape room. We escaped with 11 minutes to spare! We also went to Sak Comedy Lab in Downtown Orlando and it was hilarious!

I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2019. I hope you all have an incredible new year filled with love, prosperity, hope, and happiness!
