minimoon from erin boyle on Vimeo.

two days. two lovebirds. one tiny island off the coast of rhode island. one tiny iphone video to remember it by. yes, iā€™d go back there in a heartbeat. yes, we chose springsteen for our first dance.

*update: for those who asked, this is my grey dress.

    Love this, so much! And it reminds me that I swore I would start doing a project where I take video all year and then edit it into a sub 10 minute summary of our year, every year. I really need to get on that.

    I've been reading your blog for a few weeks, after seeing a video about your tiny apartment and being encouraged (my husband and I live in a 450 square foot apartment in Birmingham, AL). I grew up in RI and your video brings back lots of memories of ferrying over to Block Island with our bikes and biking all over the island. Can't go wrong with the coast of RI in August! Looks like you had a beautiful time šŸ™‚ Oh! And my husband has a Kymco scooter šŸ™‚
