As I bid adieu to an opulent and romantic year, I wanted to reflect on the beauty and blessings I have been fortunate enough to experience in what was a fabulous and all too fleeting period in time.
Mr. Chat and I traveled across the pond where we experienced the posh history and demure elegance of the English and the French. Our 10-day sojourn was pure magic and included an excursion to the Champagne region — a place I had been longing to experience. I visited (and fell madly in love with) a cat cafe…and in Paris of all places! I wrote about Le Café des Chats in the Boston Globe. Who would have thought I’d get paid to write about cats and Paris in the same story?!
I embarked on a fantastic day-trip to Saratoga Springs, NY with 19 of my most fashionable friends for an afternoon of brunch and betting. I met Black Jack, the sweetest and most photogenic horse, and our entire experience was covered on Fox Sports 1.
I wrote my first piece for South Shore Living magazine. And later, dipped my toe into the world of wedding writing with a story for the 2015 edition of Southern New England Weddings magazine (on newsstands now).
Lastly, I married the most darling man in the world, the charming and ever-elusive Mr. Chat. And this evening, I will toast to it all as I mark these moments. Thank you and farewell, 2014. You have been good to me.
