There are many reasons why I don’t do video blogs. 1) my videos would give everyone motion sickness. 2) The camera does not love me. 3) I’m shy. 4) I’m a better writer than I am public speaker. So I always thought the chance of any blog readers seeing me in video was very, very slim. And I was wrong. (As usual.)
We met up with Sean and Kristy of LongLongHoneymoon recently while in Florida. We had a wonderful lunch together and shared stories of our travels. They are awesome. After lunch, Sean asked if we’d be interested in being in a video for his blog. My first thought? I had just walked three miles earlier that day and my hair was BIG and frizzy thanks to the Florida humidity. Also, my child was so well behaved during lunch but would she sit still during a video? Hahahahaha. No.
But, we thought it would be fun so we did it. And it was fun! My plan was to let Chris do all the talking. Yeah, that didn’t happen. And Emerson? She was all over the place. Knocking over cups, running for the stairs, squirming all around. It was comical. (And somewhat difficult to share our story on camera when a 14 month old is enjoying her ability to walk. Everywhere.) I left with a feeling that we scared Sean and Kristy with our chaos. But, welcome to our lives. I’ve always tried to keep the blog honest so what’s more honest than my frizzy hair and squirmy child, right? (Seriously, about the hair…recently I was walking in a Florida mall and the flat iron salesman at one of the mall kiosks yelled out, “Whoa” when I walked by and pointed at me. I’m not kidding. It’s big and frizzy, y’all.)
Chris and I were excited and a wee bit scared when we saw that Sean posted the video. Sean did an amazing job putting it together. I didn’t criticize myself too much after watching it. Emerson is adorable (of course!) And Chris? Well, his response was, “I look awesome!” So, thanks Sean and Kristy! I hope our paths cross again soon!

And, here we are. Lani and her frizziness. Emerson and all her squirminess. And, Chris and his awesomeness.
