Ireland Through Instagram

I recently returned from a trip to a fantastic travel blogging conference in Dublin. Ireland that is, not Georgia, although I am sure Dublin, Georgia is full of fun stuff to see and do as well , like their annual St. Patricks Day Festival (of course!). The conference was full of both informative sessions, which have really made me think about the future of this blog, both content and style wise, as well as some pretty incredibly social events. And while this is high on my list of places to bring our kids someday – I mean it is only a hop, skip and jump away – it was certainly an enjoyable way to spend 5 kid-free days. And did I mention beautiful? Oh so beautiful. Even with it being my 4th time to this lovely Island I never fail to marvel at the natural beauty this country possesses.

So, for Instagram Thursday, I am simply linking up some of my favorite photos from my trip, full of true Irish charm and very few, if any, filters. It is just that kind of place.

Have you been somewhere where the natural beauty is so intense that you find it is almost impossible to take a bad picture?

Instagram Thursday: Unfiltering The Cannonball

While we are beaching it up in Florida we are in the unique position to spend a lot of time in the pool. And a lot of time in the pool with three boys who love to swim and jump and splash means a lot of opportunity to get some pretty amazing pictures.

Unfortunately, along with the splashing comes water, and water isn’t very good for my ‘nice’ camera. So what can I do to take pictures that capture the essence of what this trip is all about (which has turned out to be swimming, swimming, jumping and more swimming)? Bring out my iphone, relatively safe in its clunky otterbox and snap away, post to instagram.

In other words? Unfiltered pictures of the cannonball. They may not be the highest quality, and I didn’t make them look pretty, but I did capture the joy, the fun, the memories, exactly as they were.
