There is this beautiful picture that so many people paint of their lives. They wear the best of clothes, have beautiful (and on occasion) very expensive bags and shoes. They have homes so well-decorated they put Martha Stewart to shame. They attend the most luxurious of events, dine in the trendiest restaurants and eat the most Instagram-worthy food. Whether it be on a blog, Twitter or Instagram, this is how many bloggers portray their lives.
This, my friends, is not my life, and I have no intentions of making you believe that it is. I live in one of the most expensive cities in the country, and I can not afford to live this life sans massive amounts of credit card debt. The pressure that comes along with blogging to "keep up" with the rest of the blogosphere is the very thing that has made me hesitant to jump back in it. I want to share my fantastic and happy little life with you all, but it's not always glamorous, and I don't want to have to put a filter on it to make it appear that it is.
I'm very very happy right now, but I'm happy because of the love, joy and happiness in my life and the people who put a smile on my face every day; not the material things. I intend to continue on this blogging journey (hooray!), but you can expect to see a shift in content. Expect a little less fashion and "things" and a little more life in it's raw and beautiful form. Hope you can get on board with that :)
