Happy Friday friends!
So this past week I went to lunch with one of my besties who happens to be a former co-worker and another friend who is one of the most driven women I’ve come to know and who I met through said bestie where we collaborated on projects at said old job.
We started reminiscing, as ladies who lunch do, and talking about our old working together days. And it got me thinking about how lucky I’ve been in meeting so many amazing people of many calibers.
I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, a breeding ground for the winter Olympics (just check out this list of the FIFTY ONE Utahns competing this year!) and home of the 2002 Winter Games and hopefully the 2030 games! GO TEAM UtahUSA!
One of the highlights of that old job where I was the art director for our city regional magazine was that I met and photographed a LOT of Olympic athletes including:
- Gold medalist and Park City resident Ted Ligety, who you can bet I’m cheering for again this year (and who let me in on his favorite Park City Mexican joint.)
- Freestyle skiing Silver medalist Shannon Bahrke (who is expecting a baby!)
- And the recored holder for most Olympic medals by a U.S. Winter Olympian, speed skating Gold medalist Apollo Ohno (at 5’8″ he was a little shorter than me, but man, he is STILL so hot!) plus so many more.
But one my fave meetings was when I walked in to my hair stylist to get my hair “did” and who was sitting in the same I seat I would be occupying just moments later? Gold medalist LINDSEY VONN!continue to recipe… about Friday Faves
