Did you happen to catch the Growing Your Blog series last week? It was a 5 part series from the home decor blog gurus, and it was good stuff! Be sure to stop by each and catch up if you missed it.
I loved reading each day, but I think my favorite was the day hosted by Nester on Authenticity and Blogging. This is so huge— being REAL. Being honest. So often in blog land we see a beautiful, pretty, seemingly-perfect picture of some one’s life. But who’s perfect??? No one- I promise you that!
To make sure I haven’t fooled anyone into thinking I am a good housekeeper with a perfect family, I’m putting it all out there for you today friends! I’m quite sure I may lose some credibility (and blog friends) after this one, but I have to keep it real.
Truly, I am a crappy housekeeper.
And with each kid we’ve added to the mix, it gets a little messier in this house. I love hosting and having guests, creating pretty & peaceful spaces, and picking up for friends, but rest assured, if you stop by on any old day, this is the mess you’ll find:
But looky here:
This bookcase is my arch nemesis. Baby J. loves to pull out and attack those photo boxes. I’m forever pulling him away from the book case and quickly consolidating the pictures and books he has pulled off. Yeah, the bookshelf embarrasses me the most! I have big plans for it— on my project list for 2012.
