April & May 2014 Instagrams 

At the beginning of each month I like to share my favorite Instagrams from the previous month. Here are my favorite’s from both April & May. My iPhone and the Instagram App have allowed me to document and record the beautiful sights I stumble upon during my day to day life. I encourage you to take time during your busy day to stop and reflect on the things around you. Capture it. Share it.
