With You

Alamae James from rachel weaver on Vimeo.

You aren't supposed to serve guests a meal and then nitpick your own cooking. It's bad form. But just like I have a hard time not pointing out that I overcooked the chicken or that I should have salted the rub more, it's hard for me not to mention the cameo appearances by my thumb or the awkward faces I make when the camera turns on me. Regardless, just like those flawed meals, I still self-consciously enjoy this.

  1. I just read some of your journal, and it's beautiful. the photos, the family, the babies. the words. All just beautiful. That nostalgia feeling of your heart pushing into your stomach is so much stronger once you are a mom. You are so awesome, friend

    1. Thank you so very much. Motherhood and nearly debilitating nostalgia do seem to go hand in hand.

  2. Perfection is overrated, isn't it? This video couldn't possibly  be more beautiful...

    1. That's my take on perfection, but I'm a little lazy and impatient so...

  4. OMG. This is too perfect! I loved watching - thanks for sharing :) I need to start gathering up all the video clips of Eleanor and try to get them put together by the time she is 1, lol.

  5. Such a dream! The swing, the water, the children, the playfulness and fun, and most of all that plump, sweet, delectable bundle of Alamae! Such a treat to see her in motion. She really does look like you, hm? And your "awkward" faces are adorable; you are all aglow with this perfect little jewel of yours cuddling against you. I loved every bit of this.
