HOMEMADE GOODNESS

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Hope it was a wonderful weekend spent with people you love.

How I adore this much-needed holiday.  Family. Friends. Food. And gratitude galore. Honestly, I go through withdrawals after long weekends spent at home. I don’t know if it’s the lack of sleep due to the full-time party going on at ALL hours of the day or just the fact that I laugh harder, sing louder, and play crazier when I’m with the fam, but every long weekend leaves me craving  for more.

Aside from the endless game nights, afternoon hikes, laughing fits, and black friday shopping sprees, we decided to make a pie. How original!?! But not just any pie…a pie to be filmed. This is my first official Vimeo film. woot. woot. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been researching and watching online tutorials featuring the basics of videography. Ranging from Premiere color correction to camera angles, I’ve dedicated much of my time to learning this new trade. Thanksgiving was my chance to put some of these unrefined skills to the test. Lucky for me, I have wonderful sisters and a mother to volunteer their helping hands and let me take charge: “Wait, do that again!” “Can you roll the egg a little to the left?” “Pat the dough a little more femininely, if possible.” Though it took a few more hours than usual to make an apple pie and a few wrong turns (2 cups of extra sugar due to retakes), it was well worth the time.

Hope you enjoy the short film more than we enjoyed the pie.

Feel free to leave comments or suggestions. I’d love to get some feedback. Thank you, thank you.

Happy Holidays!!
