No one is perfect or has a perfect life.

We may agree with that statement intellectually, but it’s kinda hard to truly believe it when all we see on Pinterest and Facebook are other people’s successes.
But we all know how real life works. We break our diets, put off doing the dishes, forget to turn off the oven … and it stays on for 15 hours straight. It happens. But no one ever sees that side of our lives on social media. Real life is messy (sometimes embarrassing) but usually hilarious. It’s time we stop pretending our lives are perfect & start giving others the chance to be real with us too.
Which brings us to …


We want you to pin pictures of your “real-life” moments. The moments that are kinda embarrassing, but too hilarious not to share.
Here’s how it works:
  • Pin one of your “real life” pictures and a short story/description of the picture to one of your personal boards.
  • Use #rediscoveredlife in your description.
  • Comment on this post with the link to your pin. (See where to find the URL below)**
  • We will repin your pic onto the Real Life Contest Board on our Pinterest page
  • Tell your friends to head over the Contest board and have them vote for you by “liking” your pin.
  • Submit as many “real-life” pins as your heart desires. Each entry will be counted separately.

The pinner of the picture with the most “likes” wins a fabulous “Real Life Survival Kit”!

The prize will include a copy of Lysa Terkeurst’s book, Unglued, a cake mix for days you want to kick your healthy eating habits, an awesome cat calendar to help you manage the chaos, and much more.

More components of the survival guide will be announced in the next few weeks. Prizes will be (kinda) useful, and hopefully a little hilarious.

The contest will end on August 10, 2013 at 10:00 pm CST.

So JOIN US! Win an awesome prize & spread the message that it’s okay to be real!
Love y’all!

-Erin, Whit & Melissa
