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.

Easy Instagram Tips {filters and so much more}

I love my Canon 5D Mark ii. I really do. I have been cheating on it for awhile now though and I am not ashamed.

Call Me a Blabber Mouth {but there IS a giveaway}

I have so much to tell all of you this morning. We had an amazing snow storm this weekend (2ft) and we all had so much fun playing in the snow. We went sledding a few times, yummy hot cocoa was made and the boys made an awesome snow fort. I love being home so being snowed in for a day or two doesn’t matter to me. Now that the snow is melting I can move away from the sleds …
