I am not sure if you caught this exciting post by Kelly, but over a month ago, I too got an email.

It was from Chris Wiegand {the super cute and talented hubby of Miss Casey Leigh}

This family’s blog has captivated me. I can’t even explain it. They are the sweetest, cutest, most loving and reflective little family I have ever seen. If you haven’t been over there, you need to pop over immediately. Their children are absolutely beautiful, and their pictures are breathtaking.

But anyways, on with what I was saying- Chris is an incredible film maker. He won many awards at last year’s 168 film festival, and has since started his own production company. His latest project which you can read more about here on Casey’s blog, is a documentary on… you guessed it, bloggers. 

To say I was humbled when asked to be a part of this, is an understatement. I was completely touched that somehow, little me was asked to be part of something so big. Chris and his family will be traveling the country for 8 weeks filming, and documenting stories of bloggers along the way.

This is from Chris-via Casey’s blog, explaining a little more about his vision:


“What started this whole film idea for me was how my wife loves to blog/instagram so much and she is always meeting new people and, in most cases, really (sincerely) connecting with people around the country (and world). I was really more interested to dig deeper into all this blogging/instagram/twittter world and one, help people understand how cool it is to have an area on the internet that is all yours. And two, I hope to sort-of take a visual snapshot of this time in history when all these instagrammers/bloggers are able to put something out there into the world and really shape culture (in a positive way). An example of a visual element (besides the interviews and actual stories) – Imagine a woman sitting in a skyscraper apartment in NY and she reaches in her pocket and grabs a phone, takes a pic of the city below and uploads it. Then imaging another, sitting on a porch  looking at the mountains, grabs their phone, takes a pic, and uploads it. This is so visually beautiful because they are both doing the exact same thing from two completely different worlds and perspectives. I think this is important to show the differences and similarities!!! I truly think this will be a emotional movie as well as a big hit.”


I urge you to check out some of his films. I absolutely love his home movies, especially Christmas 2011. It is so precious. Imagine being these children, and having these amazing films to look back on?

I am so, SO excited about this adventure for their family. It is going to be fun to follow along the way (you can follow too Casey twitter, Chris twitter). They are even doing a $400 giveaway right now to get people excited about this! #americanblogger

Oh yeah, and they are traveling in THIS.

How cool is that?? They are currently remodeling this vintage airstream, and will hit the road this summer!

Stay tuned to find out more. I am beyond excited to be a part of this, and I can’t wait to see what this turns into!
