This week has been great. Now it is in the middle of the night Wednesday night (I seem to write a lot of blogs in the middle of the night when I cannot sleep). But, even though it's just the middle of the week a lot has happened. First of all thought, I cannot wait to see the next cut of the doc tomorrow - WHOA!!! The doc is coming closer and closer to being done as time is just flying by!! So excited to share the final cut with everyone and further the dialogue about this issue!!!!
But anyways, just today was a very busy day. Lauren and I met to shoot some pick up scenes for the doc (which we have now shot about 5 times... but the problem is that Lauren and I get so excited about talking about everything and goofing off with one another that by the end of shooting we have wayyyyyyyy too much footage that little Vegard is probably ready to kill us!) So we tried to shoot this 15 second clip yet again (but I may have messed with it once again), so we shall see how it went! But, beyond that - today was a busy day!
I started out the morning, well mid morning, with a WOLF Chat with an incredibly inspiring
(who just had a precious little boy!!) in New York who created this amazing group of women (and men too!). I am not going to lie though, I was doing alright until this morning when I started to get really nervous processing the reality of the situation - me talking for twenty minutes straight amongst incredibly talented women. But, thankfully Christine Otte helped out so incredibly much (whether she knew talking to me about where I am currently living in Westlake Village would ease my nerves or not - it did and she was amazing!). Anyways, the WOLF Chat went great and I was so incredibly honored to be the speaker for this week's chat and thankful to count my name among the women involved in WOLF.
After the WOLF Chat, Lauren and I met for those pick up shots that I was talking about before, but then we went to meet the wonderful Cece Abel of Malibu's Rock and Revolution. This store (check them out on facebook!!!) is where the next Kind Campaign installation is going up and we couldn't be more excited about it! Not only because we feel
like Malibu is a part of us since that is where Kind Campaign originated, but also because of this store and the people -- we cannot wait to spend more time with them, but also to spread the KINDness to Malibu! We will fill you in on further details about the installation and an upcoming event in June!
After the meeting was a very sad farewell that I unfortunately missed out on
(but it's probably for the best because I am no good at goodbyes because I just cry my eyes out). But our wonderfully incredible Patti Grandidge (former Kind Campaign secretary and treasurer) is heading home to the beautiful Manila, Philippines. We are so, so happy for her, but of course so incredibly sad to see her go! We love you so incredibly much Patti and are going to miss you more than words can express - you mean the world to us.
Anyways, now that I am crying, it's time to go to bed. Another day comes very soon, which means more time to hold onto and treasure. Treasure yourself, your life, and the amazing people around you who love you and who without, you would be lost.
LOVE LOVE LOVE,
