I, like pretty much everyone else on the Internet, LOVEEEEE those carefully put together blogs that show a person’s life in perfect HD clarity, never a hair out of place, always neat, happy, and expensively curated. I’m not kidding. I do love those blogs.
Let’s be honest, how realistic is it? I don’t know about you, but my life is nowhere near as picture perfect as all that. And yet, I still make great food, craft my little heart out, read great books, and sometimes throw together a good looking outfit. I’d say I fall in with 80% of women out there when I say that my life is messy, amiright?!
Okay, maybe I’m not your average garden variety mom. Who is?? What is average in this day and age? Sure, I have tattoos but apparently one in five people have tattoos now. And yes, I’m a divorced single mama. Let’s not go into the stats on that *cough*. We’re a new generation of shakers, bakers, and homemakers, and we’re pretty damned rad if I do say so myself.
I’m here to tell you how it really is. I’ll try things so you don’t have to. I too am underfunded (hell, really broke at times), out of time, too impatient, just plain bad at following instructions, and I think it’s easier to cook with a beer in hand. Don’t be scared, this will be fun!!
Let’s get shit done together!
