Tiny Photographs

A few weeks ago the Best Husband Ever got me an iPod Touch.  Of course the geek in me went happy-crazy over the many, many interesting free apps that are available.  Given my photographer's heart, of course the first one I gravitated toward was Instagram.  Easy-to-create intage photos uploaded instantly to several different platforms?  Yes, please.

Unfortunately, I soon discovered that the camera on the iPod is not as good as the one on the iPad or iPhone, so I am unable to take crisp, clean photos.  Still, the app is fun to play with, and so I have played.  Here is some of what I've seen with my new toy:

anxiety.  :{ My first Instagram

my first panic attack (at church -- boo) // my grief (and my first Instagram)

Cody treats

Cody, soft and sleepy // Cody vs. cinnamon roll


Lio // Jackson

Eve's lilac candle 1,000 gifts seen & counted

Eve's candle burning in the morning dark // one thousand gifts seen and counted

As I prepare to publish this post, I realize that it is the first that I've written since Eve's death that is not about her or my grief.  That makes me really, really sad.  I have been unable to not tag any posts with her name since she died.  I think I will tag this one with her name anyway.  She is in everything that I do.

p.s.  I am giving away a print on my art blog, and it's not too late to enter.  Check it out here.


  1. You are so right...Eve is in everything that you do. <3

  2. I love instagram too!! is it not the best invention yet? ;)

    I remember that tagging thing too! It made me sad that as baby boy got older, the less I blogged about grief. Tag her anyway, I think you are right! They really are in everything we do.


  3. Yes, your wee girl is everywhere, and most importantly she is in your heart. X

  4. Instagram is my favourite app ever. I love your doggies, and since I'm new here, I'm off to read about Eve now. :)
