Bits + Baubles || Realness

{Karen Smith + a dog}

Oh hi hello.

I realized it's been 20 years since I've done one of these posts (or maybe it's been more like two months. Technicalities.) which was a plus for me because to be honest, I had no idea what today's post should be.

There's a certain stigma in parts of the blogging world when it comes to getting real on your blog. In the age of social media and goals, there always seems to be the question of how much is too much? How real is too real?

When my grandmother passed away (semi) unexpectedly last week, I debated not posting anything about it on social media or on here for many reasons. It was too real, too raw, too unpretty.

But, as the harrowing scenes of every teen drama (not to mention real life, am I right) taught us, the world isn't always pretty. Life happens, and you can choose to ignore it and hide behind perfectly posed photos, or you can face it. I choose to always face it.


On a lighter note, how was your Halloween? Mine consisted of this episode of Boy Meets World and yummy candy. And now it's Christmas.

Also: Tell me your fave no ish keep it real bloggers. Mine are Lauryn & Helene.....
