Instagram Stories V.1

About two years ago, I did a few posts where I shared my Instagram photos and just sort of rambled about them: here and here and kind of here.  After peaking through those pictures, and marveling at how long my hair was, I decided to resurrect that feature.  The goal is to do a monthly post that, in theory, encapsulates what I've been up to lately.

Now, since I'm just starting this, I decided that I would just post and expand on the pictures I've posted this month instead of trying to do a mega-post encapsulating what I've been posting since the new year.

Without much more delay, here are my five favorite (or most-telling) pictures from April.

This month I officially found out that I have mono.  It was both stressful, but also a relief because I learned that my extreme fatigue was only a temporary thing.  I work at a job where we eat each others food and steal sips of each others drinks.  I didn't want to infect any of my teammates, so I made sure to label my water in the most obvious way possible.

It wouldn't really be instagram if every other photo wasn't a selfie, isn't that part of its purpose? This particular selfie was the day after I got my new hair color.  The color I always gravitate towards is red, it honestly feels more natural to me than my actual hair.  I've had quite a few different shades, but this one easily makes the top 3.

I've been crafting a lot lately.  I want to make sure that my free time is productive, even if my productivity is just for enjoyment.  Since I watch a lot of Netflix, I feel slightly less lazy when I'm creating something.  I've been doing some painting, some pom-pom-ing, and now I have a cutting machine, so I'm excited to see what happens next.

Maybe this photo isn't that amazing, but it's easily my favorite from this month because it is a reminder of how lucky I am to have a man friend like I do.  Since I've restarted my blogging streak, and even before, I've gone back and forth about whether or not I should purchase a tripod.  When I take outfit pictures, I am balancing my camera on cars and grills and railings.  This balancing act is actually how my last camera came to meet it's end.  Despite this, I wasn't ready to take the plunge.  My man friend has heard my occasional remark about getting a tripod and he decided to surprise me with one.  We went to Best Buy and he told me to pick out whichever one I wanted because he had been worried about choosing one and it being wrong.  This photo makes me smile because it reminds me of what a great guy that I have.

This photo really captures how much Crookston hates being put into his kennel (and also how messy my laundry room is).  Usually, Crookston will "hide" under the coffee table where all that I have to do is push it over and pick him up.  Lately, he's taken to hiding in the laundry room; sometimes even going as far as hiding under clothing.  It's sad, yet slightly amusing.  I love him even when he breaks my heart.

I was actually a little surprised at how hard it was to narrow this post to five pictures.  Instagram is great because it can capture moments and experiences that you may have otherwise missed.  Every photo I've posted has a little story behind it, so it really came down to which are the most important and unique to me.
