This topic has organically come up in conversation with many of my friends so I know I'm not the only one who has struggled with this. After thinking about it more, I realized that I may accidentally be contributing to the facade. I try my hardest to create beautiful pictures for my blog and social media because it's a creative outlet and I want to inspire beauty, and show the fullest potential of our home. But let me be honest with you: The pictures I post aren't always authentic. Yes, it's my home and my life, but to get the perfect shot I usually always push a pile of laundry off my bed; and unless it's "cleaning day," there's always some sort of mess sitting right outside the frame. I'm sure many of you may have already guessed that, but I want to be mindful of my intentions with you as my readers. I in no way want to come off as disingenuous. So with that said, I thought I'd share an average day's before and after shot of our bedroom.
Has social media and/ or blogs ever made you feel the same way?
