a sister day {video}

May 22nd | adventures, inspiration

**updated** I made the video public–sorry about that!

Chrissie and I met up in Santa Barbara {again}. These days are so special–we come needing to connect and recharge and we leave with full hearts. I think I am more myself when we are together. I made a video using the 8mm vintage app on my iphone–and I can’t believe how fun it turned out. You can see us eating pizza, munching on chips and salsa, chasing pigeons and Chrissie even drew the cutest little drawing of us. So fun!

    This was so great!! I loved getting to visit State St. again. Also, my sister & I keep talking about a girls weekend in Palm Springs but keep putting it off — now I’m inspired to nail down a date & GO!

    Sister time= good for the soul

    Check out my van Gogh story at my blog today – saw it in your art museum clip – you’ll appreciate the story loving the minds of little boys…

    This makes me already miss my cousin, who is moving to Honolulu next month for three years. Neither of us has a sister or other girl cousins, so we are like sisters. I love those kind of days with her!

  25. Smiling so big! What a precious video. Thank you for sharing.

  26. Jaimie says:

    Too cute! I definitely want that video app. What is the name of the one you’re using! <3

  27. karen says:

    So enjoyed this! Great music, great images—love the footsteps in the sand and the seagull flying in the end–but I gotta ask–where did you have that salsa? It looks delish!

  28. Tracy says:

    This was adorable! Thanks for sharing.
    I actually asked my husband for one of your necklaces for Mother’s Day and he took the hint! It’s amazing, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful gift

  29. Julie says:

    ahhhh! Like someone else said, that totally makes me wish I had a sister!

    Lisa, is that your camera bag/purse by the feet? I went to search if you had mentioned it in a previous post as I think maybe you have, but I don’t see a search. Anyways, would love to know what kind of bag it is. Super cute!

    Love it! Love it!

    What a lovely video and what a lovely relationship you two have. I was blessed with two younger brothers. We have great relationships (one lives with my husband, daughter and me while he is finishing college) but brother/sister relationships are much different from sisters relationships.

  32. Roxanne says:

    Perfect Lisa! I don’t know how people survive without sisters. : ) xo

  33. I enjoyed watching your video. I loved the old look too. It was so neat!

    It is important to have time to capture/not loose who you are as a woman…… I should practice what I preach….. my break is going to the grocery store and picking up milk and toilet paper! lol With four young boys at home, I don’t stand a chance! :O)

  34. Diane says:

    You “girls” are beautiful…inside and out! Thanks for sharing this happy video of your special time together.

  35. What a special video! I’m an only child so this made me so sad for myself but happy I have kids who have eachother! Thanks for sharing it. :)
