Like my tag line says.. my life is everything from skiing in Colorado to shopping in New York City. I wrote the tag line over a year ago, when we lived in Colorado, with no intentions of moving. But life happened, and guess where we live right now? New York!
My 2008 has been one of the craziest years in my life, a lot of ups and downs.. I got pregnant, lost the baby, and a week later our dog died… our move from Colorado was a struggle, I was a all over struggle, and lucky to be alive, I survived 12 blood clots in my lungs this summer. Had to cancel BlogHer – but got to go to BlogWorldExpo and visited Las Vegas for the first time.. Spent 6 weeks on the road when we moved from Colorado to New York, survived the move, even though my laptop got stolen..
Tom Cruise endorsed a pair of ladybug shoes on Oprah Show – shoes, which I had hand packed and given to his daughter Suri! I spoke on phone with Patrick Dempsey, met Harrison Ford, and Paula Deen kissed me. I became one of Walmart’s Eleven Moms, and collected moms’ voices in one 9,5 minute video, which was seen by tens of thousands and resulted a major company to take their (Motrin) ad down.
I’m closing down my store now, and I am not sad to let it go. At all. The store taught me everything I needed to know, and I am excited about new possibilities this will bring. The store was my security blanket, and I’m brave enough to go without it now.
I will be focusing on PR / Social Media Consulting and Blogging – I will also start a radio show! And so far my calendar for 2009 looks promising.. I am hoping to see you in New York, Detroit, Bahamas, Nashville, Austin, Chicago or Las Vegas in 2009 – all places where blogging, promoting and social media world will be taking me in 2009. Well, I hope so. Knowing my life – there will be some obstacles, and high hills to climb over, but I’m hoping you’ll stay right here with me and share my journey, my product finds, my lifestyle, and the ups and downs of it.
