Firsts and Lasts

Ok So I know I have already been over this here but upon rewatching this (yes, I periodically REWATCH a video dedicated to me...turning thirty...about me...being fabulous in my twenties) it struck me that this video spans so many cities and states and major moments - yet it is only me that knows which ones and why. Each photo, the random babies, the friends, the significance of tel and tel family member...all of it so rich for me and yet known only to me. I did not explain any of it - just put a collage of photos together. So...in the following video the following places and moments are represented:
London, Sicily, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Atlanta, Chicago, Oaxaca, Mexico City, Tennessee, Edinburgh, my graduation from college, my first in-career job, the first time I saw my niece, the first time I saw Coleman, the first toddler I feel in love with (Paloma), the first pregnancy I totally participated in (Harmony). So so so many firsts and lasts, the last days I spent in America, the last apartment I lived in in Atlanta, the last time I saw Paris, the last moments I spent as a mother to my Shaka, the last moments I spent with my sisters before I got on the plane to come here...


So without further ado...

Sadly...turning 32 in less than a month! But yes, I know...a baby. I learned from wishing away my adolescence that youth is so fleeting and no matter how old we are we will (hopefully) one day be older and remembering how young and beautiful we used to be...you know?
