Major Motion Picture

"I've spent HOURS searching for the perfect song Jen - HOURS. Last night, I was up from 9 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., and today, I listened to 'Children's Folk Songs' on Pandora trying to get inspired. And don't even get me started on the amount of time I've spent dinking in iMovie. What is my problem???"

"Give me 30 minutes," she said, her new baby cooing in the background, the sounds of an ordinary evening filling the white space around her.

And so 30 minutes I did give. And for that, I will never forget.

Lawson-An Ordinary Day

She's amazing. She's magic. She brought our major motion picture to life. It's like all of my dreams came true and are archived in my soul and heart for a lifetime

Thank you, Auntie Jennifer, for bringing our vision to life without spending a dime. You've helped create a small window for our friends and family to see what is our ordinary life with the most extraordinary little boy. These are the magical moments we drop our knees for everyday and show our thanks. And now, they're ours to keep. In good times, and in tough ones. Just pull it up and cry, cry again. With joy. With love. With passion. With care. With words that can't even be expressed that a parent feels for a child.

Thank you, for bringing it to the big screen. We love you!


PS: This whole idea of capturing an ordinary day was ripped off and duplicated from Tyler Wirken. Someday, my friend, we will be able to afford you and you too will bring our magic to life. Can't wait! Meanwhile, we hope you make millions off of this amazingly simple yet profound concept.
