picture me {im}perfectly.not mary poppins

i try to be like her.
you know, 
every kids’ dream.
every mom’s dream. 

mary poppins.

but you know what? 
i stink at being her. 
and lately, i’ve just been too worn out 
to even try to be her.

we did finally make homemade crayons last week
like i promised we would.
months ago.

the truth is, i have all of these ideas.
grand ideas, really.
but i rarely (why, oh why is it always so rare?) do them.
we’re still a bit in survival mode here.
but i wonder if maybe we are stuck here,
in survival mode.
we might be. 
we might very well be stuck here. 
in survival mode.
i think i might need to change my mindset then. 

i am again blown away 
by all the fabulous women 
who linked up last week.
hooray for showing the internet 
that we aren’t perfect 
and we don’t strive for perfection, either.
that living life is much more worthy 
than creating a perfect life. 

kaylee’s post and her blunt honesty 
rang so true for me.
picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal that we don’t have it all together.

i will post a 
picture me {im}perfectly
blog post every wednesday 
where you will be able to link up to your blog
revealing that:
you are not picture perfect,
your kids are not picture perfect,
your house is not picture perfect,
your crafts are not always picture perfect,

inspire and 
other women 
that none of us have it all together.  

add my button to your blog post
and link up to your direct posting
and feel encouraged.
