As the talented Taylor Swift famously croons, “I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22, everything will be alright if you keep me next to you,” on her track “22,” I feel like the same sentiment can be applied to the year we’ve just begun.

We’re off to a great start with successful events from the 45th annual Aspen Gay Ski Week to X Games Aspen, which intersected this year due to the Olympics and it was a surprisingly seamless match. Add to that the scores of celebrations from baby showers to ski trips with business school friends to birthday parties to an Olympic athlete send-off ceremony and more.

Next up on the calendar: the Bengals vs. the Rams at the Super Bowl, the Beijing Olympics, Valentine’s Day soirées and more!
