With Christmas in the rear view, I’m feeling very thoughtful. My Christmas was hit and miss to be quite honest. I have enjoyed the season this year but the actual day kind of flopped. Marriage is hard sometimes, life gets overwhelming and kiddos really don’t react well to getting present upon present showered upon them in a span of 2 days! The true meaning of Christmas got lost and gluttony was in excess. So in all my Christmas hangover glory, I’m a bit blue.
You might be wondering why I’m telling you this. I feel the need to get more personal this year. This blog means everything to me. I put my heart and soul in it and truly feel so incredibly blessed to have found a voice. But, “jenni raincloud” hasn’t been too forth coming in a personal sort of way. The truth is, I long to be understood and to connect. Friends are few and far between in this season of my life and you guys seriously make my day with your support.
I want you to know that even though I selectively pick the best picture of myself out of 500 ugly ones and reveal only the cute outfits on Instagram, my life is messy and far from perfect most of the time. As I set here and write this, no makeup, sweats, and a needed shower are my m.o. today and no, I won’t document this “look” on Instagram! Us bloggers have quite the knack for making things look perfect when behind the scenes it couldn’t be farther from the truth.
I’m excited to kick off my 2nd full year of blogging and am loaded with ideas of posts to come! I’m excited to continue to focus on natural beauty, fashion and health and hope to talk candidly about my life a bit more. I would absolutely love if you all would leave me comments on future posts you would like to see or any other thoughts you might have!
I hope you all can accept me being “real” and I seriously can not wait to dig into this new year! I wish you all the happiness during this holiday season and just please know, my readers are my friends and even though I tend to reveal only the pretty sides, I truly just want to be authentic.
Love everyone bunches!!!
