The Top 16: Chapel Hill Magazine

Hello Blog world! We are so excited to get back into the swing of things over here at C&D and The Bradford. It was a great break. Almost a full 2 weeks! It was so wonderful to be able to spend time with the kiddos, hubs, and all the family. I love Christmas, and this year I was much more intentional in how we spent our month of December. For the first time we celebrated Advent and I made a point to take no meetings between 5 and 7:30. For anyone in the industry, you know how hard that is! It worked out great and we had some great memories made - ones I will cherish always.

The week between Christmas and New Years was so discombobulating. We still had family here, wedding prep for a New Year's Eve event, and the need to do a little bit of inbox clean-up. I couldn't tell what day was which and at one point I spent the entire day thinking it was Thursday when it was in fact Friday. It was not until bed time when Sam said, "so when are we leaving tomorrow for Charlotte?" What?!? We are going to Charlotte on Saturday - not tomorrow. Then I was told it was Friday, not in fact Thursday.

During the week that I like to call "the haze,"Sam I took some time to do a year plan. It was our first ever, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But we had a great date night chatting about goals: plans for the kiddos, Behavioral changes we want to see, house plans, our savings, marriage goals, and personal things we want to work on. It was kind of exhausting, but also exhilarating knowing we are starting a new year, a fresh start. It got me thinking about our business and I started jotting down goals and things I am looking forward to in 2016.

For the next few weeks, we will be listing off our Top 16. It will be 16 things we are looking forward to here at The Bradford and at C&D Events.

Today, we are going to start off with Chapel Hill Magazine. CH Magazine came by a few months ago and wanted to do an article on The Bradford. It was neat chatting and telling our story about how we started in this industry. It was weird and slightly surreal to realize that we are where we are. There were a lot of times we didn't really want to reflect on 2013 and 2014. But now, looking back, it was all worth it and here we are! We are so stoked to be in a magazine for nothing other than following a dream, working our tails off, and still staying friends.

The article hits news stands tomorrow! Wahoo! So, to hold you over, and we will most certainly do a social media blast tomorrow as well, here is a preview of the magazine with:
