A Perfect House or a Comfortable Home?

Not so long ago, as I was browsing through decorating, home and garden blogs, I thought to myself, "I decorate pretty well.  I home make nicely.  I garden just fine.  I should blog.  Everyone would be interested in what I have going on over here at the Flying Pig Ranch. 
 I have a brand new camera and I know a thing or two about English Grammar.  
Sure, I can blog.
So I set up an account and begin...and stop. 
 I cannot get a decent picture of my home looking "blog worthy."  
How do these woman do it??  Their houses are amazing.  
They even have time to shop, talk fashion, and create amazing things from thrift shop finds. 
 How do they keep the children out of the pictures?    
 Here is what my kitchen looks like on any giving evening:

and our Living Room:
and our Laundry Room:
And here is what I was striving for- in my unrealistic "blogger mind."

Living Room:
and Laundry Room:

I will never get my home picture perfect.  I have a gorgeous husband and 5 incredible children.  We keep 2 dogs, 8 chickens, 1 parakeet and something like 200.000 bees.  
(again, the angels sing)
Words to live by:
At the worst, a house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life unlived.
~ Dame Rose Macaulay

So, I have decided to continue living as I do, and blog on!
