Instagram in May

Instagram in May

Previously, I’ve done Instagram in April, and Instagram in March. Now we’re almost in June and it’s time to look at my top five Instagram pictures from May!


Evening Walk. This was posted on May 6. I went for a walk around the waterfront one evening, and managed to get so many beautiful photos. Especially of the sky! Sunsets make the sky so much more colourful. I posted more photos on Evening Walks.

Cherry Blossoms. This was posted on May 8. I had been seeing lots of pictures going around of cherry blossom trees. They’re such beautiful vibrant flowers! The last time I had seen them in person was during our trip to Sydney last year. In Katoomba, on our way up to see the Three Sisters, we stopped by a street that was filled with these trees and flowers.

If We Were Having Coffee

If We Were Having Coffee

Hey! So I’ve seen this post idea floating around for a bit, most recently with Natalie and Georgia. I like the idea of doing one every now and then (maybe an end of the month thing), as coffee dates are good for a catch up right? Also, you guys will know by now that I’m a joiner. I love joining in with whatever fun things are happening. Just look around, and soon enough you’ll see me, creeping closer and closer (in a hopefully friendly way) asking if I can join in 😀

First off, let’s set the scene. I like sitting in mushy couch chairs so I can get comfy. I also like having a table so I can use it for said coffee. I also like sitting across from who I’m talking to, so there’s no awkward constant head turning.

Somewhere here we will be sitting

Now, for the drinks. I am fond of every single frappucino in the world. Even if it’s freezing weather. You guys order what you want.

I normally order only one, but sure three will work.

Okay, here we go.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this past month has been really good. Blogging has been going great. I’ve made a ton more blogging friends, as well as continued to learn more about bloggers I’ve known for longer. I’d tell you about how fun and exhausting that 30 Day challenge was. But that it made me search for more challenges to do, and I may have a problem. I’d also wonder why my follower count keeps climbing higher and higher, as it does confuse me. I’m super proud, but also, you know, where are you guys coming from? Some have just followed without liking any posts or commenting..that really confuses me.

If we were having coffee, I’d let you know that I’m still kinda bummed that we didn’t get that one house. Blogging friends, non blogging friends, Rory and family have said that we’ll get something better and not to worry. But I was liking the idea of owning our own place, of paying mortgage rather than rent, so our money can be going towards something we really want. I will say that I’m excited to check out more open homes though, see what else is out there.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m already so sick of winter and it hasn’t even officially started. June is the official start and I’m already over it. It’s going to get colder, wetter and darker. I hate that the sun sets just after 5, and that when I finish work at 5.30, it’s already getting pitch black. Bring back the sun!!

If we were having coffee, I’d show you more wedding and honeymoon photos because I literally can’t stop showing people them. I’d also let you know that I’m beyond excited for the rest of our photos to come through either next month or July. We’re going to get hundreds, and it’ll be like reliving the day all over again through high def pictures. Plus it means I get to make it into an album of sorts!!

If we were having coffee, I would also mention that I am worried I’m getting sick. I can feel my energy draining sooner at work than normal, and at the end of the day I’m more shattered than usual. I’d let you know that as much as I love the babies and toddlers I work with, I wish they wouldn’t accidentally sneeze and/or cough in my face. I’m doing my best to stay healthy, but my immune system can only do so much.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask about how your month has been. What things you’ve been excited about, things that could have gone better, and what’ll be happening for you in the next month.

After our chat I’d ask if you also want something to eat, because I have been staring at their wall of baked goodies and I can’t resist any longer.

Looking forward to our next catch up at the end of June!
