In honor of Facebook‘s recent acquisition of Instragram, I thought I throw out a little honorary post for y’all. I was a late comer to the game, but I now realize that I FREAKING LOVE Instagram. My preference is to tweet when it comes to social media, but when I can do it with pictures; especially as a visual person, Instagram is the tee-taas!
The best part about Instagram is that I can totally look like a semi-profesh photog with a lil’ ol’ iPhone. Hello digital tilt-shift! I also love that I can easily document my DIY projects and random pretties that pop along throughout my day. For those of you that don’t already follow me on Instagram, here’s a little re-cap of the latest.

Hitting up Revolution Bakery
~Welcome to Santa Fe’s only 100% Gluten Free bakery. This is a big deal people- I can eat bread again, and not hard, dry, nasty, fake bread, but real glorious bread…and pastries, and muffins and cookies! These are carrot cake muffins with golden raisins and a maple glaze. I also had an awesome lavender cherry oatmeal cookie. I realize I am a SUCKER for anything with lavender in it!
