Hi friends! Oh my gosh! I am so so so excited. You have no idea! Welcome to the first introduction post for Woodforest. I have been gleefully creating videos for you you you about Woodforest. Overnight, ten years in the making, Woodforest has become the place to be. And I have been taking note of its rise, and all the reasons why residents are calling it come.
Today is not just the first post I bring to you about Woodforest, but it marks the countdown to the premiere of the video about Woodforest that I, as the director (and videographer), and Nathan as the videographer and editor have so whole heartedly put together for you! I don’t actually know which day this video will be delivered, but I am guessing this weekend! I still have a few shots to capture, this dang weather, but this weekend should surely be the date. Once it hits, I will update this post and place the link and/or video here!
Oh, and yesterday, I posted seven mini videos documenting Woodforest, and you can find all seven of those over on the YouTube channel, by clicking this playlist link. Okay, enough babbling..
