Yeah, so I'm just a little bit addicted to Instagram. Especially these days, when I feel a bit cooped up in the house (not that we can't go out, but it's just a lot harder), it makes me feel just a bit more connected with my world. While Chris keeps up religiously with the news, I naturally tend to be more relational and love keeping up with my peeps on IG.
One thing I've been thinking about recently is the struggle between taking beautiful shots and keeping it real. I think it's easy to ooh, ahh, and compare my life to the perfectly arranged photos I see on Instagram, but then I have to remind myself that I scoot that clutter out of the frame, so others must do it as well-- right?! Is it deceptive to act like I don't have a giant pile of mail cluttering my counter, or does everyone know that? Cuz my life isn't perfect and my house isn't pristine, and I know yours isn't either. What are your thoughts? Is it okay to just take pretty pictures or do you prefer to follow IGers who keep it real with the clutter and struggles of the week?
That collage above is pretty much how my weeks look these days.
The occasional outing with Silas + lots of chilling together + figuring out how to calm our occasionally fussy baby + trying on pre-pregnancy clothes and being delighted that some of them actually fit! + iced coffee to save the day + starting to get back into reading the Word daily
Two more things::
I've been itching to get some of my photos printed. I know about Stickygram and hope to get some magnets ordered in the next week or so. What about printed photos? I've heard of PostalPix, but I believe that only works for iPhone users. How do you print your IG photos?
Also, I've been eyeing this macro/wide angle phone lens from PhotoJojo. I think it'd be fun to experiment with my phone photography with it. Anyone have it and can give me a review? Think it's worth it? Chris thinks it's completely silly, but I'm tempted to buy that sucker.
