Life Lately {Episode 1}

Well hello friends! And a very happy weekend to you!

For nearly three years now, this blog has been a fun way to share our journey as we renovate our first fixer upper. And I’ll tell ya, I’ve had a blast sharing it all every step of the way.

But the thing is, there really hasn’t been much of a behind the scenes look at our real lives, you know, behind the blog.

The thing is, life isn’t always perfect.

Our home isn’t only what you see on Instagram.

This old house has issues, our car breaks down, and sometimes, we even eat Kraft Dinner.

It’s not perfect, but that’s life for you.

But here’s the thing. You’d never really know it, would you?

What I write on the blog, what I share through social media – it’s all been carefully curated.

You see, all along I’ve felt like it’s been my job to appeal to those of you scrolling through Pinterest for farmhouse inspiration, or following along with me on Instagram looking for beautiful photos.

Though everything I share is technically our real life, it’s only really the prettiest parts.

It’s not that I wanted to project a perfect life, it just never really occurred to me that y’all might want to see anything different.

But this year friends, I’m hoping to change that…

I want to reflect something more authentic. More relatable. A bigger picture than just decor and DIY’s.

I want to give you the chance to get to know me as more than this blogger hiding behind the most perfect parts of her home.

I want to share more real life, behind the blog.

Which is why I am so, SO excited about today’s post…

Well, it’s not a post per say, but my very first VLOG actually.
