Chloe

Posted in Life, on

It's rare that I can pinpoint the exact moment, location, and circumstances of the first time that I met a particular person, especially when I'm fortunate to meet so many at hectic conferences and events. But Chloe Weil stood out.

I met Chloe for the first time on May 1 2011, outside Walgreens on Boylston Street in Boston. It was a beautiful, warm spring day, and I'd just photographed my favourite cherry blossoms in bloom further down on Newbury Street. I bumped into my friend Petra and she introduced me; Chloe was her co-worker at iSite Design in Portland, Oregon. Petra had convinced Chloe to attend the An Event Apart conference with her and was showing her around. Like most people, the first thing I noticed about Chloe was her unforgettable smile.

If you count my book, too, I've actually done more writing this year than any other! Here's a look back on other personal highlights of 2013. I hope to make this a yearly tradition — a good way to reflect and set goals for the future!
