Well,surprisingly I’ve come to realize it’s impossible to have perfection on the farm! haha! Yes I am a firstborn! I want everything done immediately and it just doesn’t work that way. As soon as I have one half of the garden weeded the other half needs it. The grass always needs mowed….you get the picture. The other night though I thought I had accomplished perfection. My husband was actually not working that night and for a few blissful hours we were all together. We played in the pool, grilled dinner, chased fireflies. And I realized that perfection doesn’t come with everything in it’s place but with my family being together.
I have family visiting from California and I wanted everything looking it’s best. But oh no. A Missouri wind blew threw toppling my shabby fufu cabana. I had snapped a few photos earlier in the week but I’m so bummed. I used lace panels from a garage sale and an upcycled pendant lamp. Vintage sheets and fun pink accessories. Super bummed.
And the weedeater decided to break so I CUT around the beds with SCISSORS! Yes, I have a blister! No I didn’t go around the fence line. Super bummed.
Life will never be perfect but it can be happy. Especially when I look for happiness in the faces of my children not the order of my home.
