Someone recently asked us where we're living and Stephen replied with, "We're vagabond-ing it right now."

baha. Vagabond-ing it. Get it??

We have been officially "homeless" for 12 days now, but the good news is - being homeless is a pretty cushy gig when you have family that's willing to take you in ;) (To clarify: we're not actually homeless, we're moving in with my Aunt and Uncle in the Salt Lake area at the end of the month, but since Stephen doesn't start working for a few weeks, we decided to make the most of it by getting in some quality family time ;) before then.)
The last 12 days have looked something like this:
1-5 : Aunt and Uncle's house in Provo
6-7: Grandpa's house in Salt Lake
8: Back to Provo
9: Back to Salt Lake
10: Parent's house in California
11-12: Sister's house in Texas
(We stay in TX until mid-next week and then return to CA.)

While this^^ might seem completely crazy, we found cheap flights from OAK to DAL so we drove to CA as a means of getting to Texas. We are excited to spend more time in California with my sibs/parents when we return!

I've been itching to make more home-video type movies lately and after getting a feel for "vlogging" via snapchat, I decided to make a vlog-style video in the car on the way to California. I didn't feel like we were recording that much footage, but when I went to put the video together I had over THIRTY MINUTES of video! I was shocked!! I wanted the video to be about five minutes, so it was quite the challenge to cut it down accordingly. It may not be the most entertaining to others, but I figure if it's even mildly entertaining to me right now, I can only image how much more entertaining it will be five years from now!

I hope to make more of these types of videos in the future**, but I'm curious -- is there a trick to deciding which footage to include in the final product?? Video friends - share with me your wisdom.

**Let's just hope I choose to film from more flattering angles in the future hahaha.

PS Shout out to our amazing families who have been so willing to take us in this month! THANK YOU!!
