Spring Break 2016 // Weekly Vlog 01

Yes, you read that right. Weekly Vlog 01. I started a YouTube channel!

This has been a goal of mine for over a year now, so I decided it was finally time to do it. I actually filmed this footage a month ago, from March 27th to April 1st. Since it was so late I almost thought about forgetting about all of it, but I really liked some of it so I decided that using it a month late was better than not using it at all.

The video includes Easter Sunday, a few days spent in Stillwater, MN at the Aurora Staples Inn and a behind-the-scenes look at taking photos for my blog.


And along with the video, I thought I’d share a few photos that I took while I was in Stillwater.

The Aurora Staples Inn was lovely! They are the best hosts and greeted guests with a glass of local wine or beer and a cheese plate. Breakfast was fantastic and the room that I stayed in was comfortable and quiet. It’s very close to Main Street, so I didn’t have a car while I was there, so I walked to Main Street to walk by the river, visit some of the shops and grab some food. I would definitely stay there again.

    Vlogging is something I have been planning to do for some time. I haven’t had the courage to do so… But, I am pushing myself to do some editing and get videos out there. The pictures you shared are extraordinary. Good luck with the video.
