I heart instagram


Those who spend any kind of time with me normally comment on how connected I am to my phone. It is a permanent part of my life. I am grateful for the technology and also curse it daily. I check email, texts, facebook, twitter and, most recently instagram. How it took me so long to jump on the instagram bandwagon, I will never know. I have 6,000 photos on my phone right now because I hate to take any photos off since I like to have visual aids when telling stories. And also I take a lot of photos.

Instagram let’s me follow other people’s visual journeys and also gives me a place to share the little moments I only seem to catch with my phone.



(The photos are of Handsome Coffee Roasters, Gjelina, an old copy of La Cuisiniere Provencale that I was cooking out of at my dad’s house, a ratatouille I made my dad, Cook Book, Axe and the incredible braids that @alisonbrislin puts in my hair when I ask her to.)

If you have an iPhone, you can follow me on instagram, my handle is @ljoliet.
