Our Annual Beach Trip & Our First 'Vlog'!

Friday, August 18, 2017

After sticking close to home so far this year, we were itching to go on our annual vacation to West Palm Beach! Blake's parents own a Marriott timeshare and we always spend a week there in late July/early August. (Last year I was leaving behind 3 week old puppies!) 

We wanted to document our stay a little differently this year, and so we attempted our first 'vlog'. I absolutely love watching vlogs on Youtube, so I thought we could try it out. We used our cell phones, a small tripod and a time lapse app to do the whole thing. Blake did all the editing, with a few tips from me along the way! 

It turned out so cute, and I just smile and smile watching it. Unapologetically, most of the clips are of my niece and nephews. I tried to get a few shots of things I love most about the trip-playing cards, taking turns cooking, and trying not to burn your feet on the lava sand when you bring your pina colada down to the beach! 


  1. I love the vlog!! You family looks SO sweet, such cute little ones and OMG those fish you guys caught! So impressive!

    I love watching vlogs too!! On our honeymoon I took little clips and was putting them into a "vlog" just like this! Great minds think alike ;)

    1. Thanks Katie!! The fishing part was definitely one of the more exciting 'scenes', the rest of the time we were just being lazy!
      I think it's a perfect way to document a trip. Now that we have a little practice, hopefully the next one is even better!

  2. I love vlogs! You did a great job! Looks like such a fun trip!

  3. I can't believe this is your first vlog- it turned out so good! Palm Beach is one of my very favorite FL cities- it's like it's own little world!

  4. What an amazing job you did with this!! Holy moly! I love it so much. You have such a creative eye with some of the things you took video clips of. Great teamwork with your hubby too on putting it all together. :)
