Instagram Favorites Vol. 1

If you follow me on Instagram you can probably tell I love the platform. With the state of the news right now I'm trying to use Facebook and Twitter less. It's not making me use Instagram any more than I already do, but it's helping me to appreciate who I follow and what they post even more. I love looking through my saved images and wanted to share some recent favorites with you!

June (Final) Wrap Up

I don't know how people blog several times a week, I can barely handle once a month! This week I found myself dreading this June wrap up post (which is why it's super late).  I'm not a full time blogger (obviously) so I can do whatever I want here! That means I'm going to end the wrap ups for now. I wanted to do a year of monthly wrap up posts and I made it 9 months. Not bad! Back to posting here whenever the mood strikes.

It took me about two seconds today to realize that I've been having a hard time handling stress and anxiety, so I should cut some things out of my routine (and add in more of what I truly want to do at that moment). Scott and I went to Michigan for a long weekend in a cabin with no internet and barely a cell signal and I realized I need to unplug a bit more in daily life. In honor of that, here are a few of my favorite photos from this weekend.

Now I'm going to spend the rest of my night reading and collaging/drawing in my sketchbook. Happy creating!
