{thus is the life of a blogger}

Some things people who don’t blog just don’t understand…

…why we laugh if they ask if we’ve heard of Pinterest.

…why we are so. tired. of. mason jars. and ombre. and chevron. {see above}

…why we say we’d rather get rid of Facebook than Twitter.

…why we call other bloggers our “friends” if we’ve never met in real life.

…why we get so passionate about crediting images and posts like this.

…why we take pictures of every meal we eat.

…why we’d pay so much for a blogging conference.

…why we get so excited when one of our favorite bloggers (Naomi!) tweets back at us.

…macarons, dogs in bow ties, and our obsession with Anthropologie.

Or, at least, these are some of the things that the people in my life don’t understand…

Thus is the Life of a Blogger

My mom: "Ohmygosh I found this site you would LOVE, it's a time sink but I'm addicted"

Me: "...is it called Pinterest?"

Mom: "Yes! Have you been on it?"

Me: *face palm* "Mom...I sent you the invite to that site six months ago."

Mom: "Oh...well don't be a hipster about it."

Thus is my life.
