Travel, Rebuilding, and the first ever Starbucks!!

As some may know, I love to participate with the organization Rebuilding Together and lend my video skills to help spread their word! The last video project I did with them here in Des Moines, IA went over well, and they asked me to participate in another project they were doing. This one just happened to be in Seattle, Washington!!! Rebuilding Together paired up with All Recipes (who’s headquarters is in Seattle) to help restore 5 different homes in need, and I have to admit, I was a bit more excited about this Rebuilding Together project 1. Because I was able to travel to Seattle, which I have never been before, and it’s on my bucket list to try and travel a lot more in the next couple of years. And 2. because I was flown out with a few others on a private leer jet!! Most people probably find it similar to flying on a regular plane, just a little more convenient, but this is going down as a pretty big work perk in my book!!!:)


Seattle’s weather was amazing – 70 with a breeze! And when you are carrying a tripod, monopod, slider, camera, batteries, and three lens on your back all day, cool weather is crucial to give you any chance of not looking like a hot hot mess at the end of the day- ha! The volunteers at All Recipes were so fun and excited about the project, we got some amazing footage to make another great video, we helped improve the homes of 5 kind and appreciative homeowners, and we even were able to do some site seeing the following day before we flew back!:)


I can’t wait to dig into editing and show the final video! In the mean time, here are a few pictures of the sites we were able to see!:)
