I arrived safely in Hawaii after a 9 hour flight from Chicago to Honolulu! Note to future travelers: If you must buy a sandwich and water bottle in an airport for $11.63, at least get a sandwich on focaccia bread. That stuff is incredible(my apologies to everyone who was raised to not call their food "stuff").
Learn to make Focaccia.
Dawn, Ellie, River and Jack came to pick me up at the airport and brought a Lei of fresh flowers. It was just as exquisite and delicately perfumed as those dollar store ones are cheap and tacky. It hangs in my room still to make it smell nice. :-)
Now, don't laugh, but the first thing I did when I went up stairs was to smell their front door. Yup. Smell it. They are beautifully carved wood front doors and I felt they would smell a bit like I imagine Professor Digory's wardrobe would smell. There is a slight scent, but not quite the pungent aroma I was imagining. :-)
On to the vlog! A sad attempt, I admit, but with just 2 hours from shooting everything to being done, I'd say it's doable and improvable. Still getting used to the sound of my own voice on tape and deciding how much of my personality and mistakes to seep through. Probably more than I did this time. :-) Anyway, enjoy!
