Being In The Moment {Instagram, Paris and Normandy}

While I was in Paris and Normandy I found myself reaching for my iPhone more and more.

With my camera phone, Instagram, fun filters and editing it is so easy to capture moments and love the results.

I find that my kids smile more with the camera phone, I can take photos of myself and friends with ease and I catch the little moments more.

I just find that images are captured that truly show us in the moment…and I love that!

While I was in Paris and Normandy I used my big camera a ton and I am slowing sharing our days on the blog.

 I thought it would be fun to show you some of my Instagram favorites of the trip.

Paris with Kelly

Normandy with Tracey

Some of these camera phone photos are my favorite from the trip.

I actually would have missed some of the little and unexpected moments without my camera phone.

    I truly need to upgrade my phone as Instagram is not available for my Andriod because of the age of it and it bites!! I am missing out on so much so I thank you for also tweeting your pictures ~ loved seeing them all!
