Grey space…ugh, I hate it;  a space filled with unknowns, uncertainty, confusion. I think it can be so scary!  I am such a black and white type of thinker, guilty of being too logical sometimes.

best of instagram

I have been having so much fun with my Instagram account lately!  I decided a few months ago to chose two social media platforms to pursue to drive traffic to my blog.  I wanted to focus on one or two mediums and give them all my attention.  Instagram and Pinterest were the two that I chose.  I enjoy scrolling through IG on a daily basis, like everything I see and comment on those special posts that I love! I am guilty of spending too much time in IG, but who isn’t?!  Since IG is where I spend most of my time checking on the latest and greatest I figured my audience is doing the same so I’m taking it to another level!   I’ve got lots of traffic and new followers, which is so fun to see! I will be focusing even more attention on IG in the coming weeks so check it out!

Here are some of my most popular posts!
