Life Imperfectly…with all the changes going on in my life, I’ve come to realize that life is never going to be perfect. Too often in bloggyland, all we see is what seems to be perfect lives, perfect families, perfect success stories. What we don’t see are the normal behind the scenes battles, the messy houses, the sinks of dirty dishes, the not-so-stellar parenting moments…the ugly parts of life. And they’re there, in every house.
It took me a long time to decide on a new blog name and make this change because I knew Blue Ridge Mountain Mama just didn’t fit me anymore. I’m still here, nestled in the lower foothills of my beloved Georgia. We’re still learning to live simply and sustainably. And, I’m still wrestling three boys on a daily basis. My life is full of giggles, laughter, blessings and beauty. It’s also full of stress, angry words sometimes, dirty floors, non-dusted furniture, piles of laundry, sinks full of dishes, piles of paperwork, a million appointments and meetings and well, dirty socks peeking out from underneath the couch.
Life is imperfect. I’m choosing to embrace it, to grab a hold of the chaos and to just hang on because I truly believe, the blessings are in the trials and the best memories are made in !the down and dirty sometimes.
I hope you’ll stick around and join me in this imperfect life. I’m Carrie and this is my blog about my life, my projects, my thoughts and my dreams. I’ve been given a wonderful husband, Hunter and three handsome boys, Lee, Levi and Rhett. We are in the north Georgia mountains where we just moved into a family home we renovated on a dime. We’ve had our share of struggles and we’re still standing on the solid rock of our faith in Jesus as our Savior.
Welcome to life…imperfectly!
