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! [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSVt7NA-E9Q]
Exploring the World
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.
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.
