During the summer, Allie and Christine both posted about the behind the scenes of their Instagram feed. Since I need to do everything that they are doing – HELLO Periscope! – I’m jumping in on the fun. But only 4 months later. I’m always late to the party.
Instagram is by far my most favorite form of social media. I mean, I do share 5 pics from my feed every week on High Five Friday, so you know I love it. There’s pretty pictures and fabulous quotes. Everything always looks perfectly marvelous. Except we all know it isn’t.
Here’s a peak behind the scenes of my Instagram feed.
This is one of my favorite pictures I’ve shared on Insta. And it was a total mistake. I had set my phone up on another bridge, set the timer and then sprinted to the other bridge to make it look like I was running across the bridge. Or at least that’s what eventually happened. In this shot, it looks like I’m soaking in nature’s beauty. In reality, I’m wondering, “Did I just hear the timer go off?”
Even though I wasn’t able to catch the sunrise while running this summer, I still caught a few while out for early morning bike rides. Gorgeous, right? What this doesn’t show is the park near this spot that always had a few questionable cars parked at it even though it was super early. Wondering what they were doing?
My son saw doughnuts. He proceeded to take one bit out of almost all the doughnuts while they sat on cooling racks. I can’t blame him. Those doughnuts were good! I still took pics of the doughnuts and didn’t say a word about why there’s only half of some.
Here I am on a great run on the snowy roads! Not really. On that day it was sheer ice on the roads and I had already run inside on the treadmill. But that didn’t stop me from putting on my running gear for a quick photo shoot. It was too pretty!
Pretty leaves. And my shirt matches perfectly. Did you notice the headstones in the upper corner? Just running through a cemetery. NBD.
