This past week, Chris Wiegand pulled into our street with his stunningly refurbished airstream trailer. We fed him some turkey burgers and sweet potato fries and then got rollin'. I have to say, I was super nervous and felt like a chump. It's easy to think that I don't have anything to offer and wonder why I was chosen to be a part of this. I'm quick to be embarrassed that my home isn't a perfect house with lots of styled rooms to choose from as interview settings. It was tough for me to not think about the fact that I'm still 15 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and that what people see right isn't a body that I'm remotely comfortable in.
I decided to not focus on my self-doubt and instead focus on the exciting opportunity that this was. I tend to stumble over my words in interview-like settings, so I was nervous that he wouldn't have any footage to take away. However, Chris made me feel super comfortable and having Knox+Chase in the room helped make me calm. Hopefully he enjoyed his time in the gorgeous town of Boulder. We love it here, so anytime we can show someone why we love it is a win.
Chris was welcomed with this amazing sunset. Not too shabby, eh?
In case this is the first time you've heard anything about American Blogger, Chris is a filmmaker and is traveling the country to tell the stories of lots of bloggers. It's such an exciting and intriguing project and I can't wait to see the end result. You can follow along his adventure across the U.S. as he films his documentary on facebook and with the hashtag #americanblogger on instagram.
It was an absolute honor to be a part of this project. I'm continually humbled at the opportunities that the Lord puts in my lap.
