So everyone already knows that, really, but Instagram and Facebook feeds suggest the opposite. And research has shown that it makes people feel bad about themselves. And I’m totally guilty… I like posting happy photos of me and my family. Those are the memories I want to keep, and I figure no one wants to see my toddler throwing a tantrum.
Nevertheless, I’m excited to be participating in the Seleni Institute’s #HolidayCardCut, an effort to show the real moments in life: the one’s that won’t be featured on your holiday card, like the one you see here. I really wanted to get a photo with Frida with his headboard as a backdrop because it was my Nana’s bed and I love it. But as you can see she was having none of it.
See below for a bonus #HolidayCardCut pic. Nope, life isn’t even close to perfect. But it’s still pretty awesome.
