I felt the need to share this bit of knowledge with you because sometimes I think blogs and pinterest
and instagram can create a sort of bubble of perceived perfection that does not line up with reality at all.
I could rattle off a list of things that we need to get done in our current home that would send a lot of people running for their nearest realtor but instead I'd rather share the projects that we're planning or have finished or maybe we've started that are somewhere in between (which seems to be the longest list of all right now). I hope that in sharing our plans and limitations you might look at where you live and see the possibilities instead of what's wrong and be inspired to make whatever changes you can.
I am working on a post that will share ways to find out what your signature colors are and how you can incorporate them into your home in a way that will make you smile and love your home whether it's in the perfect location or size or the list of what it still needs out numbers the list of finished projects.
This has caused me to spend a considerable amount of time looking through magazines, blogs and pinterest boards to come up with examples to share.
Now don't get me wrong, I am all about inspiration and love nothing more than to fritter away time looking at beautiful pictures but if I'm not careful I can come away feeling more defeated than inspired. I don't want that ever to be the case when you visit here.
The reality of it is that on most days you will find dirty dishes in the sink, stacks of papers and toys waiting to be put away and more projects started than I will ever have time to complete.
I love to decorate and can't wait to share what I'm doing with you. I just want to make sure you understand that what I share is only a cropped out snapshot of my life. There are five people living in our small home and life and messes happen...a lot.
I'm joining the ladies over at Thoughts of Home Thursday again this week.
