I've been bothered lately, but really? What else is new. I love blogging. I wouldn't keep blogging if I didn't love it, to be honest. But I'm bothered. I'm bothered by the sameness these days. I'm bothered that everything exciting featured on bigger blogs is not really that exciting. The homes and the weddings and just the lives all seem the same.
I love this post that Ashley wrote recently about how our blogs only show one part of the story: the part that we want to share. It's so true, isn't it? But that being said, why do we all still feel the need to share the same things? I want to hear about your real lives, one that isn't perfectly styled on Instagram. I want to be able to share a real wedding, one that may not have many details but does have amazing photography and an honest love story. I want to see a real home, one that's actually lived in and doesn't have a gold bar cart. And I really don't want to see another post on how to style your coffee table. It's really not that difficult.
I know I'm ranting at this point, and don't even try to ask me what better ideas I have right now. But that's what I'm going to do this month; I'm going to come up with something that's both pretty and unique. Somethings that's beautiful and realistic. It has to be out there. Don't you think?
