everyday life

My bestie, Tiffany, and I had a conversation today about blogging. I told her that my favorite blog posts to read are ones where I get a true glimpse of the blogger's everyday life.

If I like the person enough to read their blog, I really want to see what they are up to; I want to see them in the photo. I told Tiffany that sometimes when people post a picture of the work in progress on their desk (which I love), I want to reach into the computer screen and turn the camera this way and that to see everything going on in their house!! I want to see their furniture, their outfit and more!

My favorite blog posts are similar to a reality TV show....just a whole lot of nothing really but enough of something that makes me feel like I am connected to the blogger. I want to do more of that here.

I really do have a very fun life - I just forget to share it here! I usually post to Instagram or Facebook and then there's nothing left to say. I want to change that. I was a better blogger (and scrapbooker, actually) before social media came into my life.

So with this renewed focus, I promise to share more daily pictures like this one of me, grinning from ear to ear when I found Susan Branch's "A Fine Romance" at Barnes and Noble after weeks of wanting it....

Or this one from Target when Caroline found Frozen themed soup....

Or this one of Tiff with her four bags of books that cost a quarter each...

Or this one with my sweet hubby at lunch one Sunday afternoon...

Or this one of my daughter when we visited the newly renovated Krispy Kreme!

Or even this super crazy one of me with a bear in the Smoky Mountains!

I'm going to put up a sign or something to remind me to take everyday photos and share them with you, dear blog readers! Thankfully the task will be much easier in a day or two because this week, I'm upgrading my 8 GB iPhone 4 to a 64 GB iPhone 5S! Finally I can make the videos I've been wanting to make to share here and I even have an online class or two in the works!!! Very exciting!

So stay tuned - I promise to overshare very soon! :)
