STUNNING MICHIGAN SUNSET & OUR NEW PUPPY | vlog

Hello, Hanlin Family!

I hope y'all had a lovely week. My apologies for the rather banausic videos the past two weeks (well, one wasn't so bad). In organization of recent priorities, vlogging has plummeted to the bottom of the list. Not to fear, though. Normal vlogs are back!

My roommate and I have lived together for just about a month, and in that time we have been so busy with weddings or work or other various life-y things, so we haven't don't anything together for fun. We decided to remedy this last Sunday, so we parked at a downtown church, and walked to Kerrytown from there - just a few blocks away from said church.

Kerrytown = my favorite place in Ann Arbor, and not just because it's named after Ireland's County Kerry. It's always such fun to wander around and look at all the artsy things and people.

Some of you might remember the praise I had (and have) for Hollander's a while back. Sadly, that shop had closed for the day by the time we got to it, but we still had plenty to look at and drool over... including this incredibly fluffy Native American-made alpaca.

21 Sept. was my mother's birthday, so at her bidding, my dad and I joined her to look at a puppy she found on craigslist a few days ago. Long story short, we ended up taking said puppy home with us, and named her Bette (pronounced "Betty") Pearl. #vloggedit

A Weekend in Grand Haven

As you may have gathered from this blog and my social medias, Aemelia and I spent last weekend in the lovely town of Grand Haven, lounging around on the beaches and otherwise adventuring. Her grandfather and family friends were kind enough to host us for the two nights we stayed on the coast, and gave us a few pointers and cool places to visit while we were in town.

APARTMENT ART | vlog

Hello, Hanlin family!

I vlogged exactly zero seconds of my life last week, so today, I took thought I'd show off some of my photography and the art I've acquired over my 21 years of existence. Hope you enjoy!

It wasn't until 31 March of this year that the horror of 11 September, 2001 fully registered with me.

GRAND HAVEN BEACH BABES | vlog

Hello, Hanlin Family!

I hope you are enjoying the long labor day weekend. Aemelia and I took a mini road trip out to Grand Haven, MI for the holiday, and had a lovely, relaxing weekend. Of course, we vlogged it. What did y'all do?

I WALKED THE RED CARPET | vlog

Hello, Hanlin Family!

This past Tuesday (9/1), I was invited to attend the premiere of a new Christian film called 90 Minutes in Heaven - starring Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) and Kate Bosworth (the girlfriend from Remember the Titans). It would be another whirlwind trip, just like in March when I visited the film set for this movie. So, I packed a small suitcase, grabbed my gear, and at oh-my-gosh-o'clock in the morning, I was on my way to Atlanta, Georgia.

The whole experience was so much fun. I had a spot on the red carpet to grab the interviews I could, and take as many pictures of the talent as I wanted to. I only vlogged the first day, since on the second I fully concentrated on work, but as I said, it was so much fun. Hope you enjoy!
