I’m taking a break from consuming social media this month to read instead (among other things). I deleted the Instagram app from my phone and I’ve been spending more time in my Kindle app reading in 5-10 minute segments instead of scrolling. A nice element of reading is that it doesn’t have the same endorphin rush as Instagram (still feels like “work”), so I’ve already noticed myself grabbing my phone less when I’m in the middle of a task, since the alternative activity on my phone isn’t as fun as it used to be.

Nevertheless, I’ve continued to take iPhone photos during my social media hiatus. Lacking my usual photographic outlet, I thought it might be fun to post snippets from life here, if for no other reason than to create a visual diary of sorts.


Beautiful skies on the first few days of the year.


Pretty pretty sky.


My coworker at the home office (insert heart eyes emoji here).


We moved offices this week. Just down the hall – the easiest move we’ve ever had.

It’s our first office that isn’t set up like an open office – lots of doors for quiet, deep work spaces.

Erika seems to be enjoying it.


A visit to my local hardware store to get copies of keys made and some house stuff. We painted our bathroom this week and I broke a lightbulb in the process.


Lots of cute homemade signs everywhere.


Thought about getting one.


My lunch aboard a plane to Cincinnati on Tuesday.


And my dinner when I arrived around 11pm EST. #WildFriendsFun
