There are days when you wake up and the house is a mess and you really want to do a blog post
but you don't have time to clean up the messes because you are going to meet some friends and do fun things but there are clods of dirt everywhere from the pond you are building in your backyard.
So you straighten things up just a tiny little bit and move pond equipment out of the way because it's sitting in the kitchen and might show in the pictures and then you shower and put on your skinny jeans and cuss about the
5 7 pounds you need to lose then you take some pictures really quickly because the morning light is nice and you pray that you can crop the clods of dirt out of the pictures.
Then later you look at the pictures and thank heavens for the ability to crop some things out view and you are so incredibly thankful for sweet girlfriends who help you move furniture around and sweet blog friends who encourage you to paint perfectly nice pieces of furniture that aren't making you happy anymore because once a cloverleaf table is painted white the shape stands out and the whole room is prettier like a girl who whitens her teeth.
Then you have a cup of afternoon coffee and realize you'll never be a rich and famous blogger because curating photos and being all perfect just takes too much time and there's a dropcloth in the picture but maybe if you give away a subscription to The Cottage Journal your sweet blog friends will ignore it.
Did you get all of that?

The Cottage Journal next Monday. :)
