Hello loves! If I could send each and every one of you a personalized postcard from down here in Cajun Country, these are the images I’d want included on the front–drooping Spanish moss soaked in sunshine, boats painted and faded into my favorite hues, cheeky lizards, and the spoils of exploring tucked away gems of this culturally rich city. On the back, I’d tell you about stuffing myself with hole-in-the wall plate lunches and the thirty-some mosquito bites I’m newly sporting from hiking through the forested wetland. Hope you all are well!
I’ve decided I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker in love with Instagram. And I think I’m pulled to it for the same reason print magazines are still one of my favorite guilty pleasures (even though the Internet is a much freer version)…the same reason I would pull albums out every single trip to my grandparent’s house (both sets). I like looking at pretty things and images that someone, somewhere thought were important enough to document. Sure, in the age of smart phones the impulse to capture can happen quicker, the end product may not speak to their reality as strongly but the edited version of one’s life can be just as interesting. It’s almost like a happy union between glossy magazine, family photo album, and public diary. Mmmm, when I put it like that no WONDER I love it so much. Here are a few of my favorite follows…
those breakfasts. that food styling.
those outfits. that location.
those babies. that pup.
those accessory and hair choices. that color commitment.
(bonus: she has a mini pig.)
those morning views. that tiny home.
Do you have an Instagram account you think I should follow. Whether your own or someone you love to see pop up on your feed each day, I’d love to hear! Leave the name in the comments below! And if you’d like to follow me, you can find me at BBerg1012. I mostly take pictures of my cat, my food and fun things to see and do in Kentucky…as ya do. Happy snapping!
