Instagram Me

I’m BAAACCKKK!!!!  I’m home from my little summer retreat at the lake. Whew! Had a great time but as always, even though it’s ‘reality’, it’s great to be home. I thought it was a good time to dust off my little blog here and give you all a fun little something to put a smile on your face and a giggle on your lips.

Today with a plethora of multi-media avenues, we can express ourselves to our family and friends … and absolute perfect strangers … in endless ways.  Some may say it’s too much. Keep a few things to yourself, for the love of over-sharing. And they may be right. But, you have to admit, it’s kind of fun.

The other day, a video was shared on Facebook that had me cracking up so hard, I had tears running down my face. I shared it with my husband and we both laughed/cried through it.

It’s priceless!

It’s priceless because it’s so TRUE.

I mean, I represent many of the very things they are mocking in the video. As a fairly new Instagrammer (is that a term?), I fully represent the mockery!! I own it with pride! As I watched, all I could think of was all the macro pics I took this summer, sharing both on Instagram and Facebook. I’m guilty of the ‘cloud’ pictures, in the form of sunsets. I’m just a sucker for a sunset. I mean, don’t you all want to see my sunsets? Doesn’t enjoying them together sort of mean we’re bonding, in some small way?

When I edit my pics, I feel like an cutting edge artist. I envision winning photo contests. I know I’m on the verge of ‘trending’.

For every ‘Like’ I get, I utter a quick ‘Ooo-OO-oooh’. (Yes, it’s 3 syllables)

Well, tell me what you think?  Do any of you relate to this video? Fess up!!  I know you do!

If nothing else, I hope you enjoy the laugh. I know I did.
