black and white

So, I made it through my aerial silk performance this weekend. Holy jeeze did I get nervous. I’m not even sure why, but before I performed, I could feel that warm rush of anticipation over the back of my neck. It’s odd how an audience can do that to you.

My nerves made me rush through things a bit faster than I would have liked, but overall it went pretty well. Not bad for a first performance. I think I promised a video to you all, and there is one, but I need a moment to get over how embarrassing parts of it are. In the mean time, I’ll just share the snap shots my mom took.

The rest of our weekend was relaxing and refreshing. Besides the performance, and Shawn getting new glasses, we didn’t have a ton of plans, which is rare. It was nice to wake up Saturday morning not worrying about a list of things that had to get done or places we had to be. I am realizing that I need to balance my time better as I tend to overfill free time with projects.

In the past week we’ve also watched a ton of home videos from Shawn’s childhood and a few of my own. It definitely inspired us to make an effort to record more home movies. While we often record events or film projects, it’s unusual that we just record ourselves. It’s really nice to be able to look back, years down the line, and see what things were like in a particular fragment of time. Even if they’re really really really embarrassing. Which they usually are.
