Little Joys: On Insta this Week

Untitled-1Some weeks are more colorful than others, but the good news is most of them (even lacking the color) are as beautiful. This is my last week in a glance (via my instagram @anna_katherine_o). It wasn’t till after I made it that I realized how well this fit with my “down south” theme. Just a nice reminder of the little everyday things that bring joy. For me it can be restaurants that serve drinks in mason jars or really insightful journal posts by my own hand. Social media has its negatives, but it has definitely helped me find the beauty in my everyday life. I think it’s important that we use social media for the right reasons, not for what will get more likes but to share our joys.

His name is french, if you are wondering (dar-tan-yon) is how you’d pronounce it. Bonus points to you if you can guess were it’s from below in comments. (hint: I’m an English major)

Just thought I’d share some pictures of the joy of my life.
