This is how we are keeping cool this week (3rd day in a row!). #i365
This week is looking brutal! #i365
This girl graduated to a forward-facing seat for our vacation (28 months old). #i365
Crossing the mighty Mississippi on our way home. #i365
Photo session #2 from today. I know I love what I’m doing when I want to do it on vacation! #i365
She’s at it again. Discovered that Tessa took about 100 pictures of herself like this during our drive down. Crazy girl. #i365
In heaven, building sand castles at the beach. #i365
On the road (with my new silly neon watch) and half way to our destination. Hello vacation! #i365
I am SUPER excited to play with this awesome lens that I rented for the weekend. It will be perfect for my indoor sessions with @monicamcneill and @lisacalle! #i365
1 big vegan pizza + 2 happy girls #i365
Mallory’s reaction when she found out she couldn’t have the “vegan” pizza at Mellow Mushroom because the crust has eggs. Boo. #i365
Correction! It turns out the wait staff didn’t know and was just being precautious. They do have a crust with no dairy or eggs. Woot! One vegan pizza coming up!
I am having fun editing the pictures from the mini-session I did yesterday with the S girls. I had many more useable shots, compared to when I went out with my own girls. #practicepracticepractice #i365
I do two things with the daily iPhone pictures that I take and process through Instagram. (1) I create photo blog posts so that our extended family can get a glimpse of what we are up to on a daily basis; and (2) I print the pictures and add them to our family Project Life photo albums.
The process of creating the blog posts from my iPhone takes a few steps (after processing and posting the picture to Instagram, I create a new blog post using the WordPress app. To add the picture, I have to find it in my photo album and upload it from my phone. Then I have to retype the caption for the photo. Then I hit “publish” and I’m done). The steps aren’t hard, but there’s some redundancy in the process.
The redundancies have now been eliminated, thanks to ifttt.com (‘if this then that’). This site “[puts] the internet to work for you by creating tasks that fit [the ifttt] structure.” Meaning, I told ifttt to create a blog post whenever I post an instagram picture tagged with #i365. AND IT DID IT.
In one word, AWESOME.
