Life, Instagramed

In honor of Facebook‘s recent acquisition of Instragram, I thought I throw out a little honorary post for y’all.  I was a late comer to the game, but I now realize that I FREAKING LOVE Instagram.  My preference is to tweet when it comes to social media, but when I can do it with pictures; especially as a visual person, Instagram is the tee-taas!

The best part about Instagram is that I can totally look like a semi-profesh photog with a lil’ ol’ iPhone.  Hello digital tilt-shift!  I also love that I can easily document my DIY projects and random pretties that pop along throughout my day.  For those of you that don’t already follow me on Instagram, here’s a little re-cap of the latest.

Hitting up Revolution Bakery

~Welcome to Santa Fe’s only 100% Gluten Free bakery.  This is a big deal people- I can eat bread again, and not hard, dry, nasty, fake bread, but real glorious bread…and pastries, and muffins and cookies!  These are carrot cake muffins with golden raisins and a maple glaze.  I also had an awesome lavender cherry oatmeal cookie.  I realize I am a SUCKER for anything with lavender in it!

“You may now update your Facebook status”

You may not be surprised to hear this at a wedding nowadays.  With social media becoming more and more a part of our lives, more and more couples are incorporating a “status update” into their vows.  Slightly Completely irreverent, I personally think it is hilarious.  I wouldn’t necessarily be cool with it for a church wedding, but why not tell all your friends, and their friends…after all, a wedding is a public declaration of your love for one another.

What I’m really excited to see is how Twitter will become a part of weddings.  I’ve seen Twitter proposals, but I love the idea of a Twitter guest book. By giving your guests a personal hashtag to use with all of their posts, like #BradLovesAshley, encourage phone use (!) and let them tweet the night away!  How fun would it be to revisit all of the tweets that were tagged while your guests were witnessing a sweet ceremony, enjoying a delectible dinner, stuffing their faces with cake and booging down on the dance floor.  I’m on a mission to make it happen, my digitally-savvy friends!
