Love Notes: A Day In the Life


{small ways to show great love}



For a few months now, I've been officially obssessed with Instagram, which, if you haven't heard of it, is a photo sharing app with vintage-style flair.  You can share your everday adventures, your manicure, the cover of the book you're reading...Recently, I heard someone say, "Instagram is the new Twitter," I guess because of the following and frequent sharing aspects,and I panicked.  "Oh mercy," I thought to myself.  I've always kind of hated Twitter.

My husband teases me, but I love capturing short little moments I'd probably forget about otherwise.  So, regardless of your social media opinions, I was inspired by the underlying idea of snapping the images that make up your day and appyling it to one day in particular.  The both of you, that is.  Your wedding day eve, perhaps?  One of your birthdays?  Or, just celebrations for anyday.  Before Andrew and I lived together and saw each other every day as husband and wife, we'd spend hours on the phone each night gabbing away about our days.  I love the gift of our constant time together now, but I do treasure those endless conversations.  It's special, in its own way, to share things with someone when you aren't face to face.  So, whether you're a long-distance couple like we were, or if you do see each other frequently, I love the thought of collecting memories throughout the day and then sharing them with one another.

Here's your project: decide upon a day during which the two of you will photograph as many details as you care to: breakfast, your desk, the view out the window, your feet, the view from the pew if you go to Mass, and anything and everything of beauty.  At the end of the day or next time you see each other, share the fruits of your picture-taking; even better, put them in a book!  Consider it an all-day date.

Do you love sharing your pictures as much as I do?  How do you share the little things when you and your fiance are apart?
