Hear me out. I do have emotions and I do show them daily. I just don't cry.
Though there have been few times. (a+b) When my Papaw and dog Frannie passed I squalled like a baby (see pic below for demonstration). And (c) on occasion, when I watch a ultra cheesy movie/tv show/home video I might tear up or battle the quintessential "lump in the throat".
Case in point: Yesterday, I watched this elopement video on my go-to blog (Design*Sponge) and was taken back into time for a brief moment to my own wedding day. No, I didn't elope. Rather, it was a large wedding. Yes, I would love to marry Dustin over and over again.
If you cry easily, I am sure you will cry over this. If you don't cry much, you will probably develop circumstantial allergies and shed a "watery eye" tear or maybe two. I did. I am not ashamed. I wish I cried more, I think it's healthy.
**Side Note: If I don't cry at your wedding, the birth of your children or you funeral please don't be offended. My heart feels deeply in all moments of life; just not with tears...usually (see above for exceptions). I may dance, smile very big and goofily, or develop a very deep wrinkle between my eyebrows from all of the muscle tension it takes me to hold back my tears. Of this I am convinced. I love you and care for you all the same, tears or sans tears. :)
Now for the video....this is great...I wish I had a video like this of my wedding day.

Aw, now wasn't that sweet? Any tears?
After watching this video I become kind of obsessed with wedding videos. Since I couldn't track down my own, I decided to make my own video from some clips I had taken over the course of this last year. Since I have a new iMac :) I have the iMovie program and therefore the capability to create my own video montages. Which I did and am about to show you.
This is my first ever experience with this program. I think it turned out pretty well and am kind of eager to dig up some other videos of mine and play around some more.
Second, these video pieces are of my Philly Family/Community during the Summer and insane Winter from 2009. It's no sentimental wedding experience, but sentimental to me just the same. I love these guys a whole lot. I think you'll understand why after watching this video.
Warning....video is pretty grainy. I shot all of this on my camera. It's just not a good quality resolution. I think you will still get the point! (Also you can click on the video and watch it on YouTube for the full screen. For some reason it's not fitting in my blog space).
