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?

  1. My life never looks like that either. I can't afford the stylist, photographer and ticket to an alternate dimension to make it all happen!
