Okay, so, I'm totally eating my words over here. Remember when I said I didn't want an iphone because I didn't want the constant distraction of having the internet wherever I go?
Well, I got one last week. And I'm loving it. But mostly for the pictures. The whole portable internet concern? Still a concern, and one that I'm going to have to practice some self control over. Why? Because I don't want to be one of those moms who constantly has her eyes glued to her phone all throughout the day. In fact, just last night when I was at the park with the girls and I'd say 85% of the parents there had their phones out. Ahhhhh! I can't stand that! Where's the interaction with the children? Where's the living in the present? Sure, maybe one of them was checking an email to see how their Great Aunt Bertha was doing after breaking her leg earlier that day, but all of them? Highly doubt it.
And I can totally see how easy it is to get sucked into that trap. But that's not the way I want to be.
But man, that iphone camera... I'm in love with it. And I'm looking forward to using it instead of always having to lug my big ol' camera around. The iphone will also help speed up the process of updating my facebook page compared to having to go through the process of uploading the pictures from my Canon camera to my laptop and then editing and uploading the images in photoshop and saving it to my computer and then uploading to facebook or the blog. Whew! See, it takes a while to do! Which of course I'll still do for special photos, but I'll be updating more often now that I have an easier way.
And since I have an iphone, I set up an instagram account! My user name is @pamelalalasusan. (pamelasusan was already taken, of course!) You'll find fun little snapshots of my day, which takes only seconds to do on my end--so fun.
Which, speaking of instagram, do you notice some changes on this blog? I cleaned up a bunch of buttons from the side of the blog and my hubby helped me make some social media icons right up there on the top right corner under my photo. Now you can access my facebook, pinterest, and instagram in a jiffy. :)
Now, on a completely different note, I meant to add the below photo to yesterday's post. Perhaps I should still add it there, but here it is for now. And how I love it!
I had Aaron take this photo of Joy and me with our Ketti handbags for Ketti!
(Such happy girls we are with our bags, aren't we?)
How I love my Ketti bag!
Ketti--thank you for designing such high quality, cute bags for us photographers! I love everything about mine, especially the new adjustable dividers inside. You are awesome.
Okay, I best be off. I'm taking the girlies for a little walk down the road to burn their extra energy off before going to bed. And though I won't be checking the phone for updates, I'm sure I'll be snapping a photo or two. :)
