see this blog isn't a place to try and impress people. are you impressed? yeah, didn't think so. it is just a place where i can reflect and document pieces of our lives, for our own sake. yes, i love being part of a growing and wonderful community, but i want to step back and remember that this is suppose to be a safe place where i share about the real us. the rowdy us. the imperfect us. because that is who we really are. i have always wanted to write it so that we would remember. we could look back and really relive the moments when our children were small. and wanted to be around us. and if someone enjoys seeing it or reading when it isn't all just pretty than THAT is the someone i want to be friends with. someone who accepts us how we are. if you are on facebook or instagram it is all about the "likes" people seem to be stingy with their likes... what's with that, only liking "pretty" photos?!?! that seems so simple minded to me! i am going to go back to sharing more of the kooky, whacky, goofballs that we really are and posting less of "empty wall space" because you know what, a wall is a wall, but a little boy in mud will always mean much more to me! and i am the one who really has to like what i see when i scroll through my feeds. and when i see these moments... that is when i am truly happiest!
i want to encourage you to remember to forget about taking a perfect picture, and instead take a photo that means something to you. i am going to start sharing mine under our series "reality bites" and i will use that as a hashtag on media sources #reality_bites. it doesn't mean reality bites as in stinks, it means reality bites as in bite size bits of our reality. if it inspires you feel free to share your photos or experiences under that tag too, you may make some really great friends! and if it makes you delete me, than we probably are both better off.
