As a fashion blogger, there were so many silly moments that made me look like a complete weirdo to non-bloggers. Things like rushing outside in the snow to get a picture of my outfit before I got dark, always trying to wear an outfit I hadn't blogged about so I could feature it, receiving an embarrassing amount of shoes sent to work... the list is pretty endless. But now I blog more about food, I feel like I am less weird. It is kind of nice going out and not worrying so much about what I wear (although there's also part of me that MISSES caring so much), but instead, now I just can't eat something without whipping out my camera or iPhone.
And that's definitely my SimplyBeReal moment - but more often than not, it's Matt that suffers. He'll be dying to eat something, and I won't let him until I've taken the perfect photo. I do this to him all the time - I think it's because if I'm dishing up, I'll take the messy plate and give him the neat one... but of course, that's the most photogenic one. I would say 'Poor Matt' but he gets awesome food cooked for him all the time, so I don't feel too sorry for him.
Anyway, onto the point of this post - my illustration! I love it - Michael Jefferson perfectly captured those moments (although you can't see Matt's hangry face) and is so good - I thought it was a photograph when I first saw it. Thank you so much, SimplyBe! You can check out other women's real moments by visiting the #SimplyBeReal hashtag, and share your own too.
