Social Media Has Taken Over My Life
Okay…I had to have a serious talk with myself last night when Groomzilla had ruffled my oh so sensitive feathers falling from my overly lacy sleeves. I was trying, for the umpteenth time in as many days, to explain my vision to him. The loooooong table in the back yard beautifully laid with all the carefully and lovingly collected silver, china, crystal and linens I have hunted and gathered for the past several months. The table (below) al la my dear friend Courtney of French Country Cottage.
BTW, I have begged her to come east and set my table for my wedding. But she somehow feels she should be with her own family on Thanksgiving. Harumph….
I burst into tears of frustration as I said, “You must understand that I need beautiful photographs of our table for my blog and Facebook.” OMG…I literally jumped as I realized that I wasn’t crying because HIMself could not see my vision, I was crying because all my wedding plans, and for that matter life plans, somehow have turned into staging events for my blog, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook. I have officially taken leave of my senses. I doubled over in laughter at myself and my mania….
Tears Followed Laughter Followed Hysteria – Somebody Slap Me….Please!
Have I entered some alternate virtual universe where the only thing I think about is how the resulting photos of the tiniest as well as the ‘majorist’ life event will look online? Every purchase…every decision I have made was from the bloggers mindset…not a bride’s. A magical moment traded for a blog post or two? That, my dear ones, is more than eccentric.
Now, to be honest, I know in my heart of hearts that I could possess every single beautiful objet d’art my sweet idol Courtney owns and I could never come close to creating the magnificent tableaux she creates. She is the stylist I wish I could be. So I sit with a vision, debating with HIMself about the number of tables I need to make it happen.
Is it even possible? If you know me, you know my motto is…
everything is possible
possible is everywhere
Any advice appreciated!!!
