Social media is wonderful in so many ways. Social media is unfortunate in so many ways. Today I’m guest instagramming at The Blog Life and, as a play off the idea of social media, curated lifestyle photos, and authenticity, I chose the theme “my imaginary perfect day”.
I wanted a theme as a way to guide the choice photos I shared there, but as I selected the photos and started to piece it together, I also saw this as a really fun potential memory keeping project. So maybe you’ll see more of that soon.
My Imaginary Perfect Day
My imaginary perfect day would obviously start with a perfectly composed breakfast photograph, notes in my adorable notebook, a slice of artisan cinnamon raisin bread, and a perfectly crafted cup of coffee. Because in my imaginary perfect day, the boys don’t need something every 5minutes, they don’t disagree on toys or games, and they certainly don’t whine incessantly.
After the boys head off to school, my imaginary perfect day would begin with light yoga: just enough to perk me up and get me started for work. And in this imaginary scenario, I have the time to do this.
Then I would sit down to my perfectly clean desk and get started for the day. Obviously my desk always looks like this.
And I would have time to track all of my ongiong projects, take photos of the progress, and I would always be caught up.
And, of course, I would have time in my imaginary perfect day to finish all of the creative projects I want to finish.
And on this type of perfect day, I would have a fantastic lunch with some of my best friends. And I would have time for that. And it would be easy.
In the afternoon, I would take some time to catch up on creative projects – like project life – and they would always look perfect. Because, after all, this is a perfect day.
And, after work is done, Max and I would go to the park and we would have fun and it would be easy.
And, at the end of the day, my husband would come home with flowers. And I would photograph those flowers and put them on Instagram.
What would you do on your imaginary perfect day of work and parenting?
