Ferfs 2012 – What the Year Looked Like

Here it is, my obligatory year in review. With as bad as my memory is, I require myself to at least once per year document the cool things I can remember that happened over the course of the year… and this was definitely a year of ups and downs. It’s always hard to believe as I try to remember all the things I do in a year how blessed me and my family are, and how lucky we are to have so many great friends and experiences. Thank you 2012, here we come 2013!

 

Life Moments

  • Remembering my grandmother, who died in early 2012 from cancer. So happy to have been able to see her for the months leading up to her passing.Grandma and Nick Chatting it up
  • Mourning the loss of our 10 year old golden retriever, Cason. He was the only constant in our family, sad to see him go.Cason
  • The happiness of 11 years of marriage. Every August I cant help but think of how lucky I am to have met someone so perfect for me at such a young age.Documenting some pregnant Amy Mac times.
  • The pure joy of learning of our first child. Coming in March, our little boy has been hands down the most exciting thing we have ever planned for.Baby Pic
  • A trip to Memphis with friends, Dave & Sherry. We probably would not have made it there without your prodding.Rocking out on Elvis mic at Sun Studios :)
  • A trip to Mexico with family. A week, unplugged, with loved ones. Always worth it.Mexico 2012
  • Spending time on the mountain (Monteagle). It’s awesome to learn who your greatest friends are, and to be able to do cool things with them.Sunset over the mountain with Hillary, @fitness and @jrobhumphreys

Personal

  • Brewing beer with Rob, Matt and Jeff. We’re not the best, but we make amazingly drinkable beer.25 gallons of beer. All in a days work!
  • Finding companies to start to mentor, and to continue to mentor.
  • Backing cool projects on Kickstarter that range from underwear, to gadgets, to food and a book. More great companies.Backed on Kickstarter 2012
  • Another amazing year at the Jumpstart Foundry. The 2012 companies truly amazed me.
  • Being part of the wedding of my good friends Matt & Rachel.Matts Wedding

Work

  • The tremendous execution of Checkd.in. We built so many cool campaigns, its hard to mention them all: Taylor Swift, Pink, Kenny Chesney, Dunkin Donuts, Less Conf, Pitbull and so many more. The team is just crushing it.Checkd.in Photo in the Tennessean
  • The explosive growth of Change Healthcare. The stats are still unpublished, but before this year is over – peoples minds will be blown.More growth, new deals, making magic :)
  • The launching of Curious

Fitness

  • Fangtastic 5k with John Wyckoff and family
  • The warrior dash complete, and highly recommended. Drink beer, costumes, live music and giant turkey legs.Warrior Dash 2012 victory turkey leg and beer!
  • Ran the 200 mile Ragnar with team CHC. It’s amazing what you learn about people and their desires to succeed when you spend that much time in a van with them. This was a great experience, hope I can do it again one day.Objective complete. 197 mile relay with the @askch team. #ragnar
  • Bought my new Cervelo R3. Decided if I was going to commit, I needed to commit.My New Cervelo R3!
  • Trained 700 miles (small, but moving). My hopes is to do so much more in 2013

I’m sure I have left out soo many moments, but this is what my memory (and facebook, and flickr) remind me to write about. I can only hope that 2013 is more impressive than 2012 in every category. To those I know, much love – lets go get it!
