It’s no secret that I love instagram! I love seeing the world through a little square.  I love it so much I’ve thought about buying a Hasselblad (a film camera that shoots in square format) but that must wait for a little while.

Breakfast food is my favorite but I’m really, really bad at eating breakfast. I’ve been trying to be better!  It helps when I go visit my brother at the the Logan Farmer’s Market for his yummy fruit pancakes.  My sister in law sells her delicious buttermilk syrup.  You can check out more of their info on Facebook.

My favorite summertime dish, caprese salad!  One day I want to make my own mozzarella to add to garden tomatoes and basil. YUMMY!

To end the week, we went boating and tubing at Willard Bay with my step mom’s family.   I’d never been there before.  It was a lot of fun and great to see everyone!  bird while boating instagramPINIMAGEI’ve been playing my cello a lot lately.  I wish playing my cello was like riding a bike and it all just came back in the blink of an eye.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case.  I’ve lost my calluses and forgotten some of the basics.  I’ve been doing regular practice  100% for me.  It’s really relaxing and therapudic.  instagram celloPINIMAGE

I always love seeing fireworks with my husband.  Our first unofficial date was watching fireworks at the Logan fairgrounds for the 24th of July.  It doesn’t matter what the occasion is, any fireworks make me think of that night.  Having the 4th of July in the middle of the week made me think every day was the weekend. {I hope I wasn’t the only one} It through off my internal clock. A lot. We didn’t have any formal plans to watch the fireworks and drove around until we were at a place we could see the fireworks and have minimal traffic after.  On our way home we sang Lee Greenwood’s, ‘Proud To Be An American’ at the top of our lungs. 🙂PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE

One of my favorite things about summertime…snow cones!  Thanks to one of lovely brides, Lindsey, I learned about this hidden Cache Valley secret.  Pink’s!

Pink’s is this little snow cone shop located in Smithfield.  They offer fresh strawberries, coconut and sweetened condensed milk topping on each snow cone.  I highly recommend you go on try it.  If you need a snow cone buddy, give me a call!  I’d love to go back and take photos with more than my telephone 🙂

I love Instagram!  I’ve really enjoyed slowing things down and taking dozens of photos every day of my little camera phone.  They’re not the most beautiful photos, but it’s fun to see the world through a little square lens.  So far in the last few days I’ve:

-Visited with friends who had an awesome chicken coop

-Took out the trash.  Honestly this was the view right next to my giant dumpster!PINIMAGE– Went to SLC for a beautiful and humbling photography session with Flashes of Hope
