If you’ve followed our blog for awhile now you may recall we like to start off each new year sharing the pantone colour of the year with you. And I must say I am rather smitten with their selection for 2017! It brings to mind FRESH, NATURE and CALM to me and I cannot wait to incorporate it into some upcoming projects I have simmering in the back of my mind.
How fantastic is GREENERY? I just look at it and it makes me happy. If you are curious about Pantone’s past colours of the year or want more details about why they selected it here is a link to Pantone’s webpost about it.
I am so thankful for all the happiness 2016 brought me. Here are some of my highlights!
In February my fiancé Craig took me to Las Vegas for the first time. We got to hike in Valley of fire state park. It was a very memorable day for us as we’d never seen such stunning bright rock faces before.
In March I started a new business which is blooming nicely! In April I went back to Las Vegas for the Arbonne annual training conference which was AMAZING! I learned so much about business and about personal growth that I can apply to Arbonne and to Drakestail and to life in general.
In May I traveled to Ontario to meet my adorable niece Everly who had been born in March. She loves vintage shades just like her auntie!
In August I took 5 full weeks off from my day job and focused on my other endeavours which was actually life altering for me. This same month Craig and I hit the road for 12 days. We did some camping and scuba diving in Alberta. We brought the dogs and the cat on this road trip and had a blast! I also reached my goal of achieving master diver status before the end of the summer.
In November I ran away to Jamaica for 3 weeks, spent the first week with my dear friend then we were joined by friends and family and Craig and I were married on a beach by the ocean.
As a side note, all the lush Jamaican vegetation in my wedding photo feels like a great fit to the colour of the year for 2017. Who knew?!
As grateful as I am for 2016, I am really looking forward to the year ahead. I have set some goals for myself in each of my businesses and at my day job that I am excited to work on. I am wishing a fantastic year ahead to you and yours, I cannot wait to see what fabulousness 2017 will bring!
