Life Update & Instagram Love

Instagram is my all time favorite app, I was so excited when they finally released a version for Android. I hit a hundred pictures today. When life gets crazy busy, its nice to just whip out your phone a take a quick picture to remember the moment by. Instagram helps get those phone pics a little something extra. Anyways, here are some from today.
I've been trying to focus on the good things that happen each day, which is one reason I've finally gotten on the photo-a-day bandwagon via instagram. Today, I'm grateful for a lot of things. First of all, my supportive husband, who's been by my side every day for the last three months, with all sadness and the emotional rollercoaster of loosing my grandmother. And for encouraging me through all the issues I've been having with my back and leg pain the last several months, all the foam rolling, massaging, encouraging me to keep trying things and stay on track with everything. I had an MRI of my lumbar spine done yesterday. It confirmed that I have a bulging disc that is compressing a nerve and thus causing all the pain I've been having, they seem to think it is due to my scoliosis and not any specific injury. Next week, I have an appointment with a physical therapist to see if that might help. Fingers crossed. 
I'm also grateful for all the warm weather we've been having recently. Feels like summer. The lilacs are in full swing and smell so wonderful. We've been cleaning up the garden beds, finished up the shady area near the patio yesterday. (Thanks mom for your help!) I love going to nurseries and looking at all the plants, all the green and new life is so refreshing! Today, I also stopped by the new farmer's market downtown and picked up some local honey made on the south hill. Joe and I had dinner outside for the first time this year tonight, so lovely. Nice way to end a long stretch off. Also made up a batch of my favorite summer drink - passion tea lemonade. 
I'm also grateful for my wonderful family and friends who have been so supportive and caring. I don't what I would do without all of you!

  2. I love that you have instagram! I can keep track of you that way. :)

    And Mom...what about my blog? I have posted instagrams too! I'm offended! :)

  3. Jenn, I have never liked their quality. I love your SLR photos. BUT I love what Renae shared. Instant is in in just about every avenue of life. When we need it it fills a great need. Please don't start drinking instant coffee though, that I couldn't accept!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
