It has been a crazy summer and I apologize for abandoning my blog for the last few months. If you don't follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you may have missed the news that my husband got a new job in Idaho. This summer we have been in the process of selling our house in Iowa and moving up to Idaho! We are sad about leaving the Mid-West because we really loved it, but it does also feel nice to move back home and closer to family. I am hopeful that wonderful things await us in Idaho.
We've been living with my in-laws in Utah for a few months until we can close on our new house and it has been a neat opportunity to do some speaking events (which I love) and to do some interviews with Utah-based organizations. Several months ago Stephanie at Bloom Productions Utah contacted me about making a short 1-minute video for their Instagram account. Her group is trying to spread good messages online about inner beauty. Stephanie had read my post about Getting Adam to Partake and wanted me to share some of my experiences wearing a headscarf. I am SO not comfortable on video, but it was exciting to try something new.
Stephanie and I also made a longer video discussing beauty and the women in the scriptures. This one is about 2 1/2 minutes long. It is so hard for me to watch myself on video, and I need to practice my looking at the camera skills (apparently I bat my eyes when I am nervous) , but I'm pretty happy with how I did. I hope you enjoy it.
