more Instagram Love

Meris asks us this week...what brings you JOY?

I am so in love with my new iPhone and Instagram.....

little squares of secret messages.
parts and pieces of my day.
sending you sunshine on a cloudy day.

will you play?

Instagram is a free app on iPhones
or you can follow me online 
without an iPhone here at Webstagram

It truly is a JOYful thing!

It's been so long since I jumped in rain puddles.
Not because I am 54 years old.
But because Texas has suffered a severe drought 
for the past 5 years
and now we are ~~FLOODED!~~

what makes you jump for joy this week?
