The idea began percolating (coffee, ideas...a lot of things percolate in my life) while we were out in Portland to speak at the What If Conference.
And just like I like my coffee, the more I brewed on it the stronger it got.
It's something that's been on my heart for a while now, and when I finally had the space and time away to think and dream about it in Portland...everything started to become really clear for me.
I had at that point already done a couple of video blog posts on things photography related like the getting ready and shooting the ceremony. But what I realized when I really started to think about it, is that I wanted these videos to be about something more than that. That if I was going to commit to doing a video blog series, and y'know...showering, blowing out my hair and putting on clothes that are something other than yoga pants a couple of times a month :), then I really wanted those videos to come from the heart.
And while we were out in Portland giving our What If talk, I realized that the things that really get me fired up and the things that really come from the heart for me are more of the stuff that life is made of. Of dreaming big and doing bigger, getting back up when this world knocks you down, of falling down seven times but standing up eight. Of trying harder, fighting harder, and believing for more. And never ever once settling or backing down when it comes to this our one wild & precious life.
So if those are the kinds of things I talk about when I can write about anything in the world that I want....then why on earth wouldn't they be the kinds of things I would talk about here with you guys?
That's not to say that the photography posts aren't important, and we will definitely be doing a lot more of those in the Pancake Sessions and possibly even a few video posts here and there.
But for now, I wanted to give this a real shot. And who knows, maybe this will be a HUGE flop. That's definitely a possibility. :)
And right about now I'm pretty much shaking in my yoga pants as I hit publish on this.
But I'm going to push the button anyway so at least I can always look back and say I tried....and that it always came from the heart.
Happy Friday friends!
