What a year! I mean, baby, building our upstairs floor and then coming up to my first full year as independent.
It has definitely come with a few concerns. Especially the building part – gosh, by the end it really had me pull out my hair. But, wow, has it also offered a lot of joy.
Whereas I refer to last year as ‘annus horribilis,’ a dark chapter, resigning from DR, fertility treatment and all of the other tough factors, this year has without a doubt been quite a bit brighter. There’s probably some sort of ingenuity behind it all – emerging from the dark, I’m super capable of appreciating, enjoying, absorbing all of the good things. Even if you have to blink twice when the sun breaks through. You have to dare believing it and putting your concerns behind you.
And how grateful I am now. When I came into the airport around 5pm, I met the coolest team.Mette-Marie, Sus. The entire production. Director, light and sound technicians, photographers, dollies (for making those smooth shots where they wheel the camera on a cart – very Hollywood), choreographer, makeup artists, stylists. I have never and may never get to experience something like that again (until the guys from Eurovison call me, of course). At that point, I sort of started to grasp the scale of the project.
And now we’re hanging in super-sized versions all over the airport. And throughout the summer, our little SATC video has been running in the cinemas. And on TV2 Lorry, I think. And you’ve sent me so many small clips and selfies with me. It has been such a cool assignment to get. And as an independent business owner – I am mega-mega proud. That a client as big as the Airport chooses me, sticks up my photo with Sophie Ellis Bextor-like eyeshadow in the airport for millions of people to see. Tired-first-trimester-me, at that; so incredibly beautifully styled by such professional types. It was crazy. Being granted the association with something as luxury-delicious asthe new Looklab (you can seemy little tour through it here), being able to experience such a huge production. With smart co-ladies. Wauw. Please continue to bring me along with you on your holidays and work trips – it’s so super nice to receive your snaps from Looklab and the beginning of your adventures in the big (or little – you could also be flying to Aalborg) world.
May next year offer even crazier work assignments. I’m so immensely thankful – and now with the opportunity of having the best Ellen as assistant to help me out. And you guys by my side. I am so grateful. My year of sunshine. At home and at work.
