It seems like Instagram is pretty much part of a blogger’s job these days. But that particular social media platform and I have our differences. It seems to want to do everything an app can do, for example. While I, on the other hand, struggle to get a post up every day, much less master all Insta can offer. Some days I feel like I own Instagram; other days I feel like it owns me. I get torn between whether to post about real life, or to try to make mine look as pretty and polished as possible.
Regardless, it’s my favorite form of social media. I can easily spend…well…too much time scrolling through it. But I love getting to see slices of people’s lives. It’s a source of inspiration and encouragement, and also a fun way to connect with people, especially other mamas.
Oh, and occasionally you win some awesome giveaways. Like gift cards to Target and Starbucks. That pretty much made my week.
Here are some of my recent posts:
Celebrating 4 months with this little (big) guy.
Some thoughts on crossing the bridge of insecurity…
So you can see my hand lettering progress this year.
Lighting it up blue for Autism Awareness this month!
White jeans with cognac shoes?? (Yes, sometimes I ask for fashion advice on Insta.)
A gorgeous double rainbow on our trip to visit family.
Clearly I’m following a blue/gray pattern in life lately.
I would love to connect with you on Instagram! Come visit me there and say hi!
