Let’s talk about
social media life
vs.
real life…

Because life certainly isn’t always magical sunsets 🌅 and dreamy waves 🌊!

This photo may look so nicely styled in my clean + tidy home...

But here’s the reality of the behind the scenes of creating this photo is...things are everywhere!

* Like Gidget’s bed and toys moved out of the photo,

* Camera mounted on tripod and set to timer burst…because Gidget may be a supportive assistant, but her camera skills are non-existent,

* Coffee table moved out of the way,

* Gidget snoozing…,

* And finally, the styled little corner that is ready to be photographed!

See?
It's definitely not always magical sunsets + beautiful waves here in Pura Vidadise, promise! And I wouldn't want it any other way because there's beauty + growth that happens in the messiness. 💕 


Most importantly, the boss fur-lady approves! 
Thanks G! Especially for all that help...😂🐕💕
