A Bachelorette Weekend in Sonoma: Vlog Episode 22

Last weekend, over a dozen girls from across the country came together to celebrate the upcoming marriage of a very special person—my beautiful cousin, Amber:

It was exactly one year ago this week that I stayed with her in Seattle to clear my mind before making the biggest decision of my life. I hadn’t seen her since and we certainly had a lot to catch up on, so I was thrilled to have the chance to reunite with her in nearby Sonoma wine country.


Memories like these are why I started making vlogs. A once in a lifetime event that passes in the blink of an eye will now live on forever, shared with friends and family and future generations. Documenting life’s experiences—from milestones to small everyday details often overlooked—captured through my own eyes and perspective, has become my mission. The only way to make sure I’ll never forget what I saw, who I shared it with, how I felt in those moments.


I could go deep on this, and I’m in the middle of projects that are the most important work in my life so far… but I’ll save those for a later date. For now, I hope you enjoy a few minutes of lighthearted & happy memory making with new friends 🙂

On another note, packing has officially begun in this house! The movers are scheduled, storage unit is ready and I’m soaking up the last 8 days I have left here. On Monday I’m finally sharing photos of the finished guest bedroom for those of you who have been wondering. Then some more big news about the future is coming your way. Exciting times ahead. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. Hi! Do you mind if I ask what program you are using for your videos? I’ve been enjoying watching them.

  2. I’m sure you’ve mentioned this before, but where are you moving to?? Can’t wait to see what you do to the next place- I’ve never seen a blogger that so perfectly does the type of style I love, and does so much of it herself. You’re such an inspiration!

  3. Loving your vlogs! Have thoroughly enjoyed the music in all of them! Curious who did this version of “Buy You A Mockingbird”.

  4. Hi JennaSue-

    Very cute!
    Who was the artist who sang the song in your vlog? My kind of musical style, and I’m sure my husband would love it as well! He plays guitar and would love to have the music!


  5. ~0:15-0:45 (other parts too, but especially here) of this vlog reminds me very much of how the series Parenthood was filmed! And I’ve never heard this rendition of Mockingbird before but it’s really great – a perfect soundtrack for this!

    Also, I second Leanne’s comments – can’t wait to see what you’re up to next! 🙂

  6. I love Sonoma County and the surrounding foothills. I’m from Santa Rosa and live in Seattle. I miss the sunny weather and guaranteed nice days but there is nothing nicer than Seattle summers! Your wine country party looked fabulous and I like the coordinating colors. Something tells me that you are headed to SF. 🙂

  7. We’re looking for a girls getaway weekend location. Where you stayed looks amazing. Can you share the link to the Sonoma place? Assuming it’s available for weekend rentals. Thanks!
