The other day, as I was texting a bumpdate to my girlfriends, my husband quipped, “I miss your Instagrammers”. That’s the term I would use whenever I’d stop him mid-sentence and ask him to take my picture in front of some hashtag-worthy backdrop. “Oh, this will be a great Instagrammer”.
Truthfully, I don’t miss my Instagrammers. I don’t miss finding pieces of my life to photograph and share for likes. I don’t miss thumbing through filters. And I certaintly don’t miss waiting to eat my food before I take a picture of it first.
But, I’ve noticed I’m forgetting all the gems I collect every month that get buried in my phones photo stream. So, I’d like to dedicate one post every month to all my would-be Instagrammers and reminisce of the goodness of the past 30 days or so.
