This past weekend was also the hubs' birthday. Usually we do big trips for his birthday (he's an extrovert, which means that big groups give him more energy -- as an introvert, big groups tend to drain my energy). We've done ski trips in Flagstaff, beach stays in Vero Beach, excursions in Jamaica, vacation homes in Costa Rica, etc. But this time we decided to keep it low key and just do a day trip to Davenport and Santa Cruz. I think I might be turning him into an introvert, lol.
Lastly, I want to say a quick little thing about all the buzz around Instagram lately. People have been talking about shadowbanning, posting images in DMs, etc. Some places say all these things are rumors, while others seem to believe it all to be true. I do think Instagram is constantly changing its algorithm, and that doesn't always work well when it comes to our engagement (likes and comments). But Instagram is becoming (probably since last year, actually) so annoying with all the chatter about numbers, bans, untrustworthy websites and the like.
All I can say to this is if you want to enjoy Instagram, then just focus on yourself. Put out quality images with compelling captions and remember that your BLOG is number one. Post images that make you happy, even if that means only posting two images a week. Write captions that tell a story or that give your readers something more than just saying "shop this look with the liketoknowit app" (hate those). And remember that no matter the ups and downs of Instagram, you'll always have your blog. That's your bread and butter.
