Starting to reflect on the year that was. Hands down, my most challenging and difficult year losing my beautiful Dad a few days before my birthday back in March. I actually still don’t believe it, I keep thinking I’m picking him from the airport in a few days to start our yearly Christmas traditions. Dad was a larakin and a trickster and he certainly taught me how to have fun and to be silly in this over serious and complex world.
Just a month after losing Dad, serendipitously we had an Irish wedding to attend of our gorgeous Perth based friends that we had booked a year prior. We were very close to cancelling after everything that happened but my Dad was a traveler, he loved to travel, even more poignant his final days were near the Black Sea. So, to his credit we took flight and honestly I think those 6 weeks away is what got me through the very raw and early days. Being able to travel to spots my Dad had been, reflect on some Irish family history, travel to Scotland to see where his career in the oil field began... and to finish up in my grandfathers motherland Denmark well that was surreal.
In all this darkness and grief, I’ve attracted the most beautiful, trusting and loyal clientele a girl could want. I’ve worked on the best projects to date and I really do think my Dad has a part to play in all this. I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe in high purpose and the power of the universe. What you put out, you indeed attract. I am grateful every single day for how my path has steered, my only wish is that my Dad was here to see it all. •

I’m excited to bring in a fresh new year but conscious that remaining present and in the right now is precisely what I need to do. How has your year been? #eclecticcreative
