Although KasualLife.com is only a few months old, the concept of KL was actually born a year ago! April 18, 2013 at Northstar Café to be exact. Perfect weather before finals was the perfect excuse for us to take a break and grab our favorite blueberry smoothies. While meeting up with our close friend David, he mentioned how we should start up a YouTube channel. It was the perfect creative outlet for us to showcase our friendship along with all the places & foods we love!
Over the summer we continued to upload videos to our channel but by the end of summer 2013, I made a big move out to California. KL took a mini hiatus until earlier this year. After deciding that I would be moving back to Ohio, I told Kathy to come out and visit while she still had the chance. I mean, when else would she get free accommodations & free premium chauffeur services in SoCal? Obviously she couldn’t resist.
Before Kathy flew out in January 2014, I came up with an idea in turning our KL concept into a blog. It would still exhibit our original purpose but would be more manageable due to our distance in the upcoming months. During her visit, we spent time reflecting on our vision for KL and ideas for a website revamp. Since the revamp last month, KL views have grown and we’ve received so much feedback from friends & family!
We can’t believe that our little fun concept from a year ago has come this far and we can’t wait to show you all what’s in store for the future. Happy 1st Birthday to Kasual Life!
P.S. A big thanks to my Kasual Life co-founder Kathy. Due to my delayed moving date (finally set for late May), Kathy has been manning down the KL fort for the past several weeks. Thank-you K! ♥
