Random phone pics: MY fave.

 Friends, I am ALL in favor of taking pictures.  Not to the extent that your family thinks your hand has a phone or camera permanently attached....but to the extent where you have a trail of photos and memories leading you to now.  An easy look back, a peek into the past.  We so easily complain (ok, I do at least), and record life's wrongs and travesties as if our very life depended on it.  And the blessings and good life moments and memories.....we let float away, as precariously as a balloon drifting off into the sky.  

If I'm not preaching to the choir here, I'm at least preaching to myself.  So this is why I take pictures.   I adore Instagram (find me at sunshinebysara)  but have so many extra little gems tucked safe and sound on my phone and I decided it was time to get them "off my device and into my life", borrowing the words of Artifact Uprising.  You know I'm going to do everything but beg and plead for you to pull out your phone or camera and just capture one photo today of something happy and joyful.  :) 
 I'm stepping off my soapbox and ready to give a one sentence blurb about this collection of memories!

  1. Definitely preaching to the converted, I'm another huge Instagram fan, and a fan of finding the happy in the everyday 😄
