It Only Takes One Insta(gram)nt…

Hello, my name is Sara, and I have an addiction to social media. Step One is admitting it.

Remember when all we had was the old AIM? Does anyone know if that even still exists? Never mind, I probably shouldn’t know. As if onetwo three four five social media platforms were not enough, I now have a sixth one.
Welcome to Instagram. In one instant, I was hooked. 

(Note: Many thanks to my dear friend Julia at Pain, Pride and Perseverance for introducing me to this awesome new addiction! I always wondered how you got such fabulous photos.)
Combined with Picframe and Camera+ (both iPhone apps) there is no limit to what I can create. It’s practically a Blogger’s dream come true.  
So, what better way is there to spend Mother’s Day then playing with photography apps for hours on end?
My mother-in-law has been wishing for a picture of all the family’s dogs to hang on her refrigerator (we got her a magnetic picture frame from Disney World with all of the Disney dogs on it) and our attempts at lining five of them up for a group photo have been less than successful. We’re lucky to get two or three together. Enter Picframe: 
Do you know how long it took me just to get each one?!
Lady is my sister-in-law’s, Grace and Sadie are mine and Mollie and Maggie are my mother-in-law’s. We love dogs, could you tell? I would say Lady was the most photogenic yesterday. Sadie was just plain horrified that I wanted to take her picture?!
Really, Mama?!
My mother-in-law wanted help with her flower beds for Mother’s Day so we spent the afternoon shopping for flowers and planting them. 
Herbs and purple daisies. 

I have decided I love Foxglove!
I also got some herbs for our garden: Orange Mint, Chocolate Mint, Flat Leaf Parsley and Cilantro. I can’t wait to plant them and start using them!

If you’re on Instagram – I’d love to follow you and see your photos too! I am @wordstorunby.
To all the mothers, I hope you had a fabulous day full of family, friends and fun. 
Until the next mile marker, 


  1. Be careful with those mints… they tend to spread very easily. Not sure if you wanted to plant them in a garden or leave them in a planter. I would suggest to restrict them somehow with a planter.

    Nice pictures by the way and cute dogs. 🙂

  2. I spent lots of Mother’s day planting with the kids and it was fun! What will you make with those mints? They sound so good!
