How would you define family?
The definition most people have about family in their mind is well… wrong. 😅 So wrong. And that makes me so f*cking sad. Family should be a blessing not a pressure.
This is my family. And it is just perfect for us even if there is no such thing as a perfect family. You know why? Because each family is perfect on it’s own weird way. We live, we fight, we LOVE, and we are there for each other always and forever. We share everything, even the most vulnerable moments of our life. This is what family means. Family means sharing. Sharing the good, the bad, THE BED.
Family means comfort. Family means trust. Family means the safety of the idea that you have someone to return to on your worst days, when you screw it up, or to celebrate your achievements. This is how I see my family. And THIS is how Oana Hajos sees us.
She started this beautiful project called Somnul Stelar (Sleeping Under The Stars) a few months ago, and she has painted lots of sleeping families since then. She is using a colorful watercolor technique on paper and the results are dreamy all the time. You can order yours by contacting her here.
It will definitely make you smile and fill your heart each time you look at it. It’s like a kind reminder that your family IS perfect. Whether you’re married or not, whether you have children or not, whether you have pets or not. Be grateful for what you have, and be proud of it!
