I noticed that some of my favorite Instagram photographers should have more followers than they do. Please share your favorites – I love people who travel or live in pretty spots so I can live vicariously.
Sean looked over the other day while I was playing with this app and said something like “Oh god, that’s basically hours of fun for you.” An extension of the Kuler site, the app is free and lets you make custom palettes, or suggest palettes based on your photos. You can also import photos from flickr or Google. I love the idea of basing a wedding color theme or room off a favorite photo.
Since this post, there’s been a major update. No, not that update. I wish. But possibly good, possibly not-so-good. I had surgery on June 3rd expecting to possibly find scar tissue, or nothing. Instead, it turns out that I have endometriosis. I’ve been wavering back & forth around being pretty depressed about it & being hopeful, though everyone I talk to gets excited that there’s an ANSWER. So I’m back to a no coffee, limited dairy, non-estrogenic diet, being super careful about toxins, etc etc. I’m just pretty beat at this point with the whole journey.
When I planned a June trip to Maine with my parents back in December, I had no idea it would be bracketed with having surgery, my brother’s final divorce court date (still waiting on the final decision), and a whirlwind work trip to Boulder – on top of all the other craziness that comes from starting a new job (just past 90 days now) & the start of summer.
I took a bit of a breather from the social internets post-surgery, I was struggling with having others’ financial & baby-having ease in my face all day long. Beyond that, I realized that every single time I opened Facebook, I read something that made me feel bad about life or humanity. It’s been good to step away, but I miss the interaction with my core group of ladies. Maybe I should get everyone’s numbers and text them all day long, like I do to Jen. I’m slowly finding a balance and trying to be more mindful of how I spend down time. For instance, instead of reading Twitter I should probably spend my down time doing Etsy and socking it into an IVF fund. And I should never read Facebook.
p.s. IT IS STILL RAINING in Vermont. The end times are here.
This house in the July/August Elle Decor caught my eye – it’s very much Sean’s style & close enough in age to our house that a lot of the details would work. I love the classic-colonial-meets-world-traveling-naturalist look.
