I (heart) Instagram

I love Instagram. I love everything about it. It helps me keep up with the important people in my life and allows me to {stalk} get a small inside scoop on my favorite celebrities. I have been an Instagram user for over 3 years now and have learned a lot about how to take a photo on your phone camera.



If you are an Instagram user, have you ever gone back to the first photo you have ever taken and re-watched you life flash before you? Well I did it last night. I went to the first photo I ever took and kept scrolling up, watching the last 3 years of my life flash before me. Seeing where my life was then, what was important then, how I have improved on taking a selfie and how I went from no one liking my photo, to getting an average of 30 people liking my photo a day. That may not seem like a lot to you, but to me, it's a big deal.
 
This was my very first Instagram...
I simply wrote Cheers!
This photo was taken right after my church wedding shower.
 
Here is my life for the past 3 years! All by Instagram. It made me tear up last night because I really truly understand what pure happiness is.
It is in these photos. It is the love of my husband. It is in the love of my parents and siblings. It is the love of my nieces and nephews. It is that love I feel when I look into the eyes of my 2 dogs. It is seeing how much I have grown and gained and lost. I put them in order of how the last 3 years of my life were. I wish I could have put them all!

Well....this afternoon I will find out if she is having a boy or a girl and announcing it here...Friday...on my blog and Instagram! I am so excited she is letting me do this. (Like she had a choice)! After she gets done telling who she wants, she has given me full permission to shout it out. So be on the look out Friday for my special pregnancy post on my new niece/nephew.
