I’ve changed my mind about Instagram themes

Just recently I’ve seen tons of bloggers posting and tweeting about Instagram themes. Until a couple of weeks ago I had no idea what an Instagram theme was. I thought I must have missed another life changing update or something, but it turns out I didn’t.

Why taking a break from blogging could be good for you and your blog

If you read my post the other day about my holiday with Jordan then you might already know that I spent a week away from my blog. It wasn’t hard because we were mega busy all week but I did miss it very much. Since I’ve been back though and reunited with my computer I feel different. I think the break was good for me. I’ve got TONS of new ideas Sometimes when I’ve had a long and busy day at work I don’t really have anything to talk about on here. I might have been too busy all day to think…
