Does anyone's life actually look like this?
Sometimes I get blog life envy. What is that you ask? I will tell you. Blog life envy (which is something I've completely made up) is when you see a gorgeously styled photo posted on a blog -- be it of a dinner party or a carefully set tableau -- and you imagine that whoever lives this life must be a million times better and more stylish and together and fabulous than you are. Is this true? Probably not. My writer friend Kara Baskin wrote a great story about the life we project via social media, specifically how it pertains to motherhood. It's called "Glamorous Chaos: The Tiring Pursuit of Art-Directed Motherhood," and it's a great read on this very topic. Anyway, I digress only to return to my original point. Does anyone's life actually look like this?
