A Look at July In Pictures

I thought I would try something fun and different today and give you a look at my life that doesn’t usually make it on this site. If you follow me on Instagram you might recognize some of the above pictures. Instagram is where I tend to post random pictures of everyday life. Things I don’t have time to post here or that are not food related.

I know a lot of you don’t do Instagram, so I thought I would put together a collage of some of my Instagram photos from July. I thought it might give you a little different look into my life than you normally see here. If you all like this idea and would enjoy seeing more posts like this, leave a comment letting me know and I will try to do them once a month or so.

July 2013 on InstagramTop Row:ย 

  • Saturday morning breakfast.
  • Fresh from the orchard peaches.
  • My son made himself lunch which was a BCT, a bacon cheese and tomato sandwich. Why have lettuce when you can have cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Gluten free blueberry muffins made by my daughter.
  • The view from my kitchen. A view I will never get tired of.ย 

Second Row:

  • A photo shoot for my website.
  • A picture of me. On Instagram I mentioned the ankle length pant being odd when you are 5 foot 10 and have spent a good portion of your life wearing pants too short. I love the fit of the pants, I am just not sure about the ankle length. Anyone else feel this way about ankle length pants?ย 
  • View from an evening run.
  • New recipe using my gluten free baking mix that I will share soon on GF Mixes.
  • Old cookbook I bought. Have I mentioned I LOVE old cookbooks?!

Third Row:

  • New red Toms shoes. I wore my old black pair out and because my daughter says all I wear is brown and black, she suggested I add color to my closet. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Made lunch to take to my husband’s office.ย 
  • Greek yogurt and homemade granola is a new favorite lunch or snack.
  • Another picture taken on an evening run.ย 
  • Fresh picked produce from our garden.ย

  1. I’m so with you on the “short” pants. I spent my teen years with pants that were not long enough. At the time, the only pants that were long enough for me in my size were considered a specialty item. My parents could never afford those. So glad that long is now a standard option in many pants. I can’t get past the past to wear this new style.

    • That is the exact reason they drive me crazy. I grew so fast as a kid that my pants were often too short. And then when I stopped growing we could not afford the specialty ones to get them long enough. And yes I totally agree and am glad that long and tall are more common now. I love the fit of these, so I am keeping them, but I doubt I will be adding any more ankle pants to my wardrobe. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad to know others understand!

  2. What a fun post idea! I might have to give it a try!! lol I”ve always been tall, too and have had the same problems. Ack! I wear capris a lot now which helps in the summer.

    • I have gotten used to capris and don’t mind them as much since they are shorter and seem more like they should be short. Ankle length though really just feels wrong and like I need 3 or more inches added on. ๐Ÿ™‚
