Thursday Thanks – Instagram

Hey- I never said these posts would be deep and meaningful all the time.

Really though, I am thankful for Instagram – I love checking in a few times a day to see snippets of other peoples lives – either those I love or those I love to follow. It gives me insight into my husbands life – he takes the strangest pictures of things and posts to me the most random comments, but his followers really like them. I get to see fresh pics of the nieces and nephews ones that I wouldn’t normally get to see in my day to day trudging. I get too witness wicked humor of my cousin as she posts something that amuses her. And then there are those that I don’t know but am drawn to: Kate from The Small Things blog she just had a baby and posts pics of her normal day to day life but between her blog and her pics I feel like I get to check in with a friend. Mimi from Luxyhair – she has a youtube page and a few Instagram accounts – her hair tutorials are to die for and I really wish I had her apartment. Aaron from Fast and Loud – (Discovery Channel) -I’m not usually attracted to men with beards but there is something special about the bearded wonder – lol. Then there is @theoandbeau_ what might have started my Instagram obsession in the first place – the beautiful story of a boy and his dog – played out during naptime. Neither of the manly men in my life will follow directly but they expect me to tag them in the comments so they can view. 🙂 If you have a soft spot for puppies or adorable baby pics you must check them out.

I think the idea of being able to follow who I want to follow is what gives it such a step above Facebook – at least IMHO. I am able to freely be a voyeur in the lives of many I would not normally have the opportunity to do so. With so many of the choices already made for us each and every day, it’s nice to pull out my phone and say – what’s happing in the little world I’ve created for myself today? To have the instant gratification of visual and note on top of that is just icing on the cake.
