Once again, three months have passed since my last 'life lately' update. Three to the day, actually. (For new readers, these posts document some bits and pieces of recent day-to-day life via good ol' non-fancy cell phone pictures.) Last time I blamed the lapse in these posts on the holidays and business madness and Essley's birth and having a newborn, and explained that I'd been so focused on all the 'big things' happening that I hadn't really stopped and paid attention to the small things. Funny enough, this time, I think the opposite is true. There haven't been a ton of big moments (you know, aside from things that are big only to me, like Essley rolling over or sleeping for more than a two-hour stretch; or me busting out a big work project while baby naps or finding time to shower more than twice a week). So maybe this time I subconsciously assumed that things have mostly been too boring to share here. Really though, I think that more than anything, these updates have become so few and far between because I'm utilizing Instagram more and more for sharing those quick personal moments. It's become my favorite social media outlet, by far. Whether or not this will be my last 'life lately' post I'm not sure, but if you do want to continue to follow along, please come join me over there. I'm under user name bubbyandbean.
For those of you who blog, do you tend to share the more personal daily moments on your blogs or on Instagram (or both)?
