Midwest S'mores Night.


It seems silly to say that an app changed my life--but that's the truth. People scoff at social media, and it isn't without its shortcomings, that's for sure, but it can be such an amazing tool in bringing together people that would have never met otherwise. 50 years from now, if my grandchildren ask me what the big social media boom was like, those will be the stories I tell--stories of how I made friends like Haley, Tessa, Aimee, Emma, Lindsey, Ronnie, Ana, Jessica, Sarah, Madison.... Yes, social media can be addicting. Yes it can make you feel inferior if you let it. But if you take the reins, amazing things can happen. Lindsey and Ronnie made amazing things happen a couple weeks ago. They hosted an Instagram meet-up/ s'mores night at Lindsey's house. After months (or even years) of seeing pieces of each other's lives online, we would be face to face with our insta-friends, some of us for the first time.

Project Life: Weeks 34 & 35

I'm behind again...imagine that! Well, actually my Project Life is doing just fine thankyouverymuch, but I'm doing not-so-awesome at blogging my pages....or blogging in general. Grad school has me scrambling like you wouldn't believe. One of my classes was cancelled this week, so I thought I would toss up some of the pictures I snapped of my pages from the past couple weeks. Hopefully I'll get a firm routine established and things will pick back up around here soon.





P.S. Happy September! How am I saying that already?!
