CAN I BE YOU?






I appreciate social media. I do. I'm not going to deny it. I love seeing great pictures of my friends. I enjoy seeing how much fun people are having via the photos they share. I am grateful that social media has helped me and my business(es) grow more than I ever thought possible. 

Social media allows us to look like we have the perfect life. But the hard truth is that the perfection we perceive is not the whole story -- it's the pretty parts. And of course they are. I mean, we're not going to post about trials and tribulations, because, let's be honest, there are entirely too many of those. I am not a fan of people commenting or sending me emails asking, "can I be you?" because, quite frankly, I am no where near perfect. I cry. I hurt. I go through heartbreak. I have weak spots. My self-focused pride gets in the way some days. I am hopelessly flawed. I am human through and through, and I have an utterly complete need for Jesus. Yet this life was given to me for a reason. Alongside the hardships, my life consists of a lot of beauty and love and special times. And through my talents of writing and photographing, I feel God commands me to use them and share them. And so I do. For you. And for me. So, thank you for following me despite my imperfections, and allowing me to share what God has bestowed upon me. It means the world.
