I know I’m about 5 years late to this particular party, but I finally joined last week. Once I did I immediately understood what all the fuss is about!  I hope you’ll come and follow along.  There’s also a link and a peek at what I’m posting over on the side bar.

One of the first things I realized is that it becomes so much easier to find out about cool events that your friends and fellow authors are putting together.  I have been a long time fan of Maggie Battista’s site, Eat Boutique so of course I followed her on Instagram.  When it popped up that she’d be hosting a book signing at Farm & Fable, a gorgeous shop in Boston, I decided to attend.  I’m so glad that I did- not only was it a great to meet Maggie in person, but I also walked away with a signed copy of her gorgeous book, Food Gift Love.  I definitely tend to the introverted side, especially when it comes to networking in my field.  I am much happier behind my camera, or squirreled away in my studio.  But when I force myself out into the world I’m always glad I took the leap.  It feels great to get out there and meet people who are passionate about creating things of beauty.  And I can assure you, after a quick flip through her book, Maggie has created quite a thing of beauty.  I feel like I have Instagram to thank for a great event, and I can’t wait to see where else it will lead me!






One thought on “Instagram…finally

  1. Yay! Hooray!!! So glad you are on Instagram now. I love how simple it is and how you can get a quick little glimpse into the lives of those you care about. As well as find out about cool events and see fun things trending and follow along with causes you believe in. Mostly though, I love that it makes me feel like you are just down the road. Closer in a way. That the pumpkin bread coming out of your oven I can somehow smell from where I am. It’s good in its simplicity! Plus, I get to remember Fall when you post those gorgeous leaf photos!
    So welcome, welcome, welcome, my dear friend. So glad you finally arrived!
