Exploring the World

Take Me Home - Free the Honey

I could not be more proud to be sharing the music video I made for Free the Honey's song, Take Me Home.  Having zero video experience, I knew this would just be an experiment, but what a glorious experiment it was!  To create a visual story to accompany their enchanting song in one of the most gorgeous places in the hill country was a dream.  It may not be perfect, but I'm still overjoyed with how it turned out.  I can't wait to do another music video, so let me know if music makes your heart come alive and you want to share that with the world!

2015 Adventures

As 2015 turned into 2016, my dad led our group of friends and neighbors in a version of Auld Lang Syne that mostly involved the first two lines and a lot of indistinguishable humming.  I always treasure that moment of transition, because it feels like we are joining centuries of people before us in celebrating a new year, but also mourning the passing of the previous.  2015 held beautiful adventures with beautiful people and I loved spending time remembering the moments that made me feel alive.  I created beautiful images, climbed mountains, witnessed devastating storms,  grieved the passing of precious friends, fulfilled a childhood dream of cheering on the US Women in the World Cup, explored my ancestor's hometown, told incredible stories, rejoiced in my second wedding anniversary, petted/tried to pet many cats, enjoyed my family (including my inlaws!), and witnessed the glorious creation of a gracious God. 2015 Adventures_00012015 Adventures_00022015 Adventures_00032015 Adventures_00042015 Adventures_00052015 Adventures_00062015 Adventures_00082015 Adventures_00092015 Adventures_00102015 Adventures_00112015 Adventures_00122015 Adventures_00132015 Adventures_00142015 Adventures_00152015 Adventures_00162015 Adventures_00172015 Adventures_00182015 Adventures_00192015 Adventures_00202015 Adventures_0021

Adventure // Boundary Waters Canoe Trip 2013

You should know there is adventure in simply being among those we love and the things we love, and beauty too.”-Lloyd Alexander, The Black Cauldron

Nothing is better than adventures in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota with family & friends.  And since we were a month away from our wedding, a wilderness retreat was an amazing way to prioritize relationship over wedding details.
