The “Not So Reject” Rejects

For every photo posted on Instagram, there are MANY others that don’t make the cut. Usually they are terrible, awful and downright embarrassing. But there are very rare cases where I find more than one gem; and I decided they need a home. My little corner of the inter web is as good as any…. so here it goes, the “reject reel”… a new series on the blog.

    These are all incredible shots!! Love the ones with your boy and kitten 😍 I recently lost my baby girl kitty just before she was to be 2 ☹ but it warms my heart to see your little one and your happy family! Cherish them ❤️🐾

    P.S. Do you take this pictures with an app, or just normal camera phone? They’re stunning!

      Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your kitty! 🙁 So sad.

      I take them with my iPhone 6 and edit them with vsco.

    these are such sweet pictures and I love the idea of a reject reel because so much of blogger instagram accounts are about being perfect and yet most of life isn’t perfect! so it’s fun to see a little “real world” too! i agree with the other comment^ that says you should talk about how you edit your photos! they are so lovely.
    also, i’m in love with your house and how you’ve decorated. a while back you talked about doing a walkthrough type post – are you still thinking about maybe doing that sometime?

      Hi Randie!

      Yes! I still want to do a home tour post. It’s about time. I think I said I was going to do that a year ago. HA!

    Oh my gosh! What a fabulous idea! I may borrow the idea, if you don’t mind. So many sweet photos of my sweet girl that I don’t want to go obnoxiously posting all over Instagram. 😉 Such sweet photos of your beautiful family/life. My jaw drops every time you post!

    And I don’t think I could possibly use the word “sweet” any more times… whoops!
