Lolly's face here ^ kind of says it all. I had enthusiastically been working on this blog for weeks when suddenly everything came to a screeching halt. There were well over twenty posts and I deleted everything, just like that. The blog went dark and cold for a minute while I wondered if I was cut out for any type of social media platform. I mean, who did I think I was that anyone would care to read what I have to say?!? I was lacking inspiration, patience, creativity and good sleep (thank you, Lolly). I even deleted Instagram off of my phone for a few days because I was feeling especially blah and judgmental (Sorry, guys). I was on the verge of abandoning when I had a "lightbulb" conversation with my dear friend TiAndra. Perfection is boring and not essential. So now I'm back, without a clear vision or aesthetic, but with a little more realistic view. I'm not especially interesting; I'm not a professional photographer or chef; I'm not going to be the next Taza (but gosh, I love her so much); and that's ok. This blog won't really be about beauty or style advice, as I don't know much about either of those things. It won't be about motherhood advice or marriage tips because, hello, I'm only (almost) 25 and advice like that should come from older, more mature people who have adult children or have been married for AT LEAST 10 years. Seriously, until then, the rest of us should just shut up and learn.
This blog will, however, be about my family, because while I'm not an expert about anything, I DO have a hot husband, two beautiful babies and a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ. Those are pretty rad things to have in my "corner".
Finally, I hate copy cats. There are a million blogs with cool pictures and good tips and they all look the same to me. The ones I really love are all about being INDIVIDUAL. They're different, unique, raw and real and I love them for it. Please don't ever feel like something you read here is "law" or needs to be emulated. I would hate for someone to compare their life to mine and judge themselves to be inferior, because trust me you're not. On that note, feel free to judge, compare and find yourself more righteous or awesome than I because Lord knows the only one who cares about that is you. LOL. Let's all just kill it in our own way, in our own lane, with our own style. Be inspired if the fancy strikes, but be rad and be YOU every step of the way, whatever that entails. :)
