The Green Monster

Sometimes I get envious. It's inevitable when you have a prescence online. Whether it's a personal blog or social media page someone somewhere always has it better than you - and likewise always worse. 

It can bum me out at times when I see gorgeous home renovations or beautiful backyards. Friends who are already moving away from their "starter home" while we have yet to purchase our first home. 

We know better than to compare ourselves to people on the internet but it's hard right? Someone always has more money, better clothes, nicer things. 

The Internet is oh so tricky that way. Making everything always seem so AWESOME. 

And although at times I can be a bit envious that doesn't mean I'm not happy for the life changes for all these people. It just means I'm silently sitting back and waiting for our moment as well. Oh how I cannot wait to get my hands on a hammer and do some serious renovation one day!

I know how very lucky I am in so many ways. My marriage is strong, my baby is healthy and we are able to do many of the things we want to. I must say that travel is the luxury of a renter as we are not really tied down to anything!

We have been a little radio silent around here and on social media but I promise we are around! Just the same old stuff happening in these parts!

  2. I totally can relate! it's important to remember what we have instead of focusing on what we don't have.

  3. great post and so important to remember!! there will ALWAYS be bigger and better things you want but you probably don't NEED it. And so important to remember to be grateful for the people in your life instead of just the material things. xoxo

  5. So true, you are one of the lucky ones! On the first home thing... you are in a super expensive area to live so don't beat yourself up for not buying just yet!

  6. What Ashley said, the grass is not always greener ;) It's so hard with social media, we always show the highlight reel, If I could send you a photo right now of what my house looks like in real life you would laugh out loud. I'm usually a hot mess, wearing sweatpants (or yoga pants) with my hair in a top knot and sweeping crumbs off the bottom of my feet because I haven't had a chance to vacuum in days. I get it though, I do the same thing, it's hard not to want perfection. XO

  7. Perfectly said!!! And I am guilty of it all too often... oh I wish I had a house. I wish I had a backyard. I wish I could go on all those fancy vacations. Or any vacation at all. I wish I could buy new clothes all the time, etc etc. It's bad. But we have to remember, people usually post the good. Not that there's always bad, but the perfect picture could have a huge mess hiding behind it. Love this!

  8. I think we all do it! I have to remind myself that people usually only post the pretty parts in their life and leave out the bad and messy stuff. Everyone has their own issues and trials.

  9. Totally get where you're coming from, but just envious over other things! We know we are so blessed to have built our dream home, but we are still trying to fill it with a family. I see people who have done that and are doing that and it's tough... Our times will come girl!!

  11. So true lovely! As wonderful as the online world is, it can be very deceiving and we can get caught up in it all... But always remember that the grass is only greener where it is watered - and you are watering yours so beautifully! x
