Quiet, ordinary moments are interesting to me. What I enjoyed most about the day in the life session I shot with Denver lawyer, Kelly Snodgrass of Snodgrass Law, LLC, was learning the little things. Kelly takes off her shoes under her desk. She says she’s detached but you can see her passion for her work and her empathy and concern for her client. She wears her college sweatshirt when she wants to be comfortable. And at the end of the day, she watches cooking shows and snuggles under a Muppets blanket. For real. Kelly is a beautiful, incredibly intelligent, single woman who owns her own home and her own business. It's a powerful combination. She's intriguing and lovely and compassionate. I have gotten to know Kelly through a networking group, but you don't get much of a peek into somebody's life at networking events. After attending a luncheon for the Alliance of Professional Women, we headed to a client’s divorce mediation. It's so interesting to see what a badass Kelly is when she's "on" in a mediation. She was so dedicated to her client and helping him through all the weird twists and turns that divorce can bring. He and the mediator were very kind to allow me to be in the room documenting the proceeding. Things didn’t end the way they do on TV, no banging of a gavel or sense of resolve. Three hours after we began, we just packed up our gear and left. It was oddly unsatisfying.
Kelly wrapped up her day by fixing me dinner while we drank wine and did what women will do – talked about men. Beautifully ordinary.
