If You Love Books…You MUST Visit Powell’s Before You Die

I’ve had the chance to visit this treasure trove of books…

If you have never been to Portland but have wanted to go…put Powell’s Bookstore on your list of places to visit. SUCH a cool bookstore.

A Celebration of Life

This was not an easy video to make…but it was important.

My father-in-law passed away a little over a year ago and I avoided making this video for quite a while.

Emotional stuff like this is NOT my strong suit…but this was a way for me to process what I am going through. I also hope that it’s an appropriate way for me to say thank you to my wife’s father.

One of the things I have found about making vlogs is that, in some odd way, talking to the camera helps me process. I tend to internalize my emotions…which can work against me…but I have found that if I talk about them that it helps immensely.

Even if I’m just talking to a camera.

This video is a celebration of life in tribute to Larry Mitchell Sr.

SLAYbour Day (a fun family film)

Kids loved doing this…

This was an off the cuff family “movie” made by my brother-in-law and all kids, cousins, parents.

Of course they handed me the footage and asked if I could put it all together. It didn’t take too much!! They had a blast and when they’re older I know my kids will love watching this one day.

How to HANDLE the STRESS of MOVING your Family

Moving is one of the most stressful things in life…

Google “the most stressful things in life” and you get the below:

  • Divorce
  • Moving
  • Major illness or injury
  • Job loss

It always blows my mind that moving is up there with things like divorce or job loss. But let me tell you, as someone who has moved his family a few times now…it’s true.
