I have always excelled at making grand plans for my life. I’ve made countless vision boards displaying ocean views, delicious vegetarian meals, beautiful mountains, someone serenely writing in their journal, a yogi holding a bad-ass inversion, and so on. So, naturally, I got really excited about Pinterest when I first joined. Surely, I thought, the constant influx of inspiration would increase my productivity, creativity, and happiness. It would make me a better cook, baker, knitter, traveler, crafter, etc. Then, a few months into pinning away, it hit me that I was thinking about doing all these amazing things a lot more than I was actively pursuing them. And that, my friends, is simply unacceptable. So, I decided to start this blog as an exercise in actually living the life I pretend to online.
