The Reality Behind these “Perfect” Doors…
So today’s post is completely impromptu. I’m sitting here on a Friday night home alone with my two little ones and feeling totally compelled to write this post. Mark has his last softball game of the season at 9:30pm (right now basically in real time), I just put the girls to sleep and I am sitting in bed, typing this into my phone. Earlier tonight I had a comment on Instagram that got me thinking. Here’s the comment….
Wow, congratulations!!! I recently began reading our blog. At a glance, one could say you’re the girl that has it all. I’m so glad I took the time to read. Your words on extending grace and your journey to today are genuine and show a humble side. Very very deserving of all the blessings and exciting things happening for you!
I love this. I also blog and there are definitely rooms I don’t show because they are not “worthy” of a house tour. It’s sometimes wonderful and sometimes a struggle. Thanks for being so honest.

I feel you on this, friend! Honesty is always the most compelling- great blog post, as usual!
I appreciated this post as a new blogger. There is that constant battle and I appreciate reading it from another blogger. Thank you for that!

Thanks for being open, honest and transparent that life is real! Sometimes good and sometimes bad and that none of us are perfect 🙂 I love following your blog and your journey through it all! hugs, Darcy
I honestly needed this today. I love these in depth looks at how things may look perfect for you but you had to go through so much to get here. You are so lucky and I adore you and your rawness on this subject. I’m a struggling designer in a terrible location. My family is currently in the struggling phase and it’s hard. So hard. I have faith that things will move forward and there is something out there for me. This posts helps me keep my head held high. Thank you, always! xoxoxoxo

Absolutely stunning post. I love how you have shared your heart. I am a newer business owner, and this really spoke to me. Thank you for opening up. 🙂
This is beautiful and heartfelt and raw and genuine. I’m always drawn to people who are vulnerable and am able to open themselves up and I so appreciate and relate to this post. I’m new in the blogging world (5 months new) and it’s already been a journey so far. I always want people to see the whole picture, the whole me and not just the perfectly placed food. If they could see the kitchen behind it with dishes piled high in the sink, they will see the real me. Ha! Thank you for having the courage to share. I admire you even more now! 🙂
This post speaks to my soul. Design was my dream job. I graduated college with an accounting degree and work in the corporate world. When I run into friends I grew up with they are just as confused. I love decorating and designing my house. It consumes most of my thoughts. It is my outlet and something that effects me deeply. I think a lot of people can take it as being materialistic, but it isn’t. I know in my heart that the way my home feels effects the way I function. I have no desire to “keep up” with anyone or have the latest and greatest. It is something different than that. Thanks for sharing!
I think the majority of ppl understand that you are a real person and that outside the frame may not look so perfect! I follower a lovely blogger (justaddsunshine) that has a hashtag #katiessliceofreallife that shows “real life” pics of the craziness of life. It’s fun and Ithink everyone’s can relate to her. Life isn’t perfect, nor will it ever be! We don’t want it to be anyway- how boring would that be?!?!
