Caves & Christmas | VLOGMAS #24

24-vlogmas

What family explores caves on Christmas Eve? The same kind that opens presents at midnight and rushes to church with red mud still caked to their shoes.

That family’d be us.

Christmas In A Ghost Town | VLOGMAS #23

23-vlogmas-2

For our Christmas Eve Eve, us Koontzes did the unpredictable: we packed up and went camping—in a ghost town no less.

Because that’s the way we roll.

Potty Talk W/The Koontzes | VLOGMAS #21

21-vlogmas

There are two things us, Koontzes, are best at: 1.) Being loud and 2.) Bathroom humor. Nothing dirty. Simply, humor derived from personal experiences in the bathroom.

We can go on and on.

Now that my big brother is home, our two main skills are instantaneously magnified.

I Finally Talk About My Writing | VLOGMAS #20

20-vlogmas

The tag line for my blog is “something to read as I work on my next novel,” yet I’ve never spoken of my writing projects, what I really want to do, or what excites me about writing.

Tonight, I blab and gush, and honestly have a fantastic time talking about my writing process and how I study people.

Candlelight Service & Sleepovers | VLOGMAS #18 & #19

18-19-vlogmas

What a crazy, long, and emotionally exhausting weekend I had! But I am forever blessed to spend it, winding down with my best friend Amy.

We had candy cane tea and girl talks, with a touch of violence thrown in—so a typical sleepover all around.

Here We Come A-Caroling | VLOGMAS #17

17-vlogmas

There are a lot of characters in my church. Freezing temperatures seem to only magnify the essence of our personalities.

Come along with us as we go caroling at a convalescent home and various houses in sub-zero California temperatures.

I Vlog In Public! | VLOGMAS #16

16-vlogmas

I got an early start this morning with the dentist, errands, singing in the car, coffee, and my little brother’s Christmas concert on the agenda!

I also drop quite a few things in this video.

Short & Tall Talks | VLOGMAS #14

Watch the master storyteller at work as I tell story after story of being a short girl and a coffee lover.

I also share my Mac lipstick collection. Just for fun.

I Fight With My Camera A Lot | VLOGMAS #13

13-vlogmas

I may not act it in this video, but I just had that horrifying realization that as a 21-year-old human being, I am practically a grown adult. Practically. As in, a full grown woman.

Woah, man.

So I should probably stop getting into hissy fits and marriage disputes with inanimate objects. I think I just discovered my 2017 new year resolution.

“JOGHURT!!!” | VLOGMAS #11

11-vlogmas

Another Sunday, another long day. So much to vlog!! Watching this makes me smile. I love my friends.

They’re so patient with me when I continuously interrupt their adult conversations by  screaming, “JOGHURT!”
