Last week (?) I posted a nice little post on how my kids and I were happily making pickles and ice cream in my kitchen, enjoying the day and making creative messes.
As I stood on a chair focusing in on a pretty bowl of freshly scrubbed picklers, I focused in...snapped, took my face away from the camera and seriously laughed out loud.
Well, here's what YOU saw.....
And here's what I saw....brace yourself....
So here's the deal girls, we read these blogs and see every one's pretty homes and pretty things and sometimes it can get a little overwhelming. It can be easy, if our minds aren't guarded, to feel jealous, feel bad about our own stuff, small, insignificant, lame.
My kitchen is not normally this gross (or my kids would be in foster care for gosh sakes) but that day, it struck me...let's not let this awesome blog world of ours get us down, yo.
For the most part we only see pictures, and those pictures are almost always focused in on the pretty stuff.
Just thought you should know that I love blogging and I love sharing my loves, talents, gifts; but I never ever ever ever want to portray myself as Lil Ms. Perfect Pants.
Nobody likes Ms. Perfect Pants...that's not me.
Let's just be honest, we've all got stickers stuck to our butts and mold on our bread at one point or another right?
Comprende. (roll your tongue when you say it, it just feels better.)
