The day after our wedding, Gabe activated my iPhone...a much debated purchase about which I wasn't completely keen. You see, I'm a tech-minimalist--my circa 2009 brick cell was more than enough for me. Anything more advanced was likely to leave me cussing like a sailor while trying to check my voicemail.
Unfortunately, my technophile husband couldn't stand my behind-the-times phone. So, upgrade we did. And it is he who I now blame for my addiction to Instagram, the ultra fast photo editing app that I use at least ten times a day.
I'm the type whose house may be a mess, but still fiddles with the salt and pepper shaker until they're standing in perfect harmony, or takes a moment to categorize my shelves by color, simply because I feel life is prettier that way. Prior to having an iPhone, I didn't stop to document these little things using my camera because it was rather time consuming.
I believe in those little moments, in catching the way an apple looks sitting on the table. Even if that's silly to everyone else, certain things are worth taking a moment to fidget with, to honor beauty in the smallest of things. Even if the rest of the world is in chaos, the ability to control one little beautiful moment is fulfilling.
So....yep. I'm now one of those people...I believe in Instagraming the heck out of life! Do you Instagram?

Any of you girls fall into those categories? :) Well, she's got a crew of amazing folks who are sharing their experiences and advice this week...be sure to pop over and check out the Livin' the Dream series!
