Hello. My name is Harper Lee, and I’m obsessed with Instagram. There. I said it. About two months ago, my blogging friend at oh melvn (and yo jake) published a post that featured absolutely beautiful and very funny Instagram photos of her extremely entertaining dogs. That was it. I had to be on Instagram. I created an account (with a little help from my human mommy) and I was hooked. Go ahead and visit Melvin and Jake on Instagram @tholupka_ohmelvin. If you’re not already on Instagram, you’ll want to be there after seeing the antics of these two!
So it all started very slowly and innocently, and then at the end of August I discovered the daily photo challenge. Uh oh. I was getting in deeper. I’m about half way through my second daily photo challenge month–the Pet October Photo Challenge–and I am having a blast.
As if posting my own photos wasn’t addictive enough, I started discovering more and more irresistible accounts. I simply cannot get enough of the gorgeous Golden brother and sister @kimmie_wimmie. Every time I see an Instagram photo of these two playing, I want to jump into the phone and romp around with them. I’ve just found the Instagram account of @peggyfitz1. If you want to see breathtaking photos of nature–with an occasional Golden Retriever or horse thrown in there–you must visit this account.
Just when I thought my obsession with Instagram couldn’t possibly become any greater, I saw this last Saturday morning. My sweet friends @johnanng remembered precious Bear and thought of me on a morning visit to Cocoa Beach by the Atlantic Ocean. Just think about it: Instagram joined Bear–a Golden boy who loved the Pacific Ocean–and me–a Gulf Coast Golden girl who is still waiting for her first beach trip–right there at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean . . . and cute Carter’s paw prints and photo bomb were a beautiful bonus.
I will leave you with my mommy’s favorite Instagram photo of me from the September daily challenge. I hope that you’ll think about following me on Instagram (you can find me @thek9harperlee) and, if you’re not already posting your own photos on Instagram, I hope you’ll consider starting your own account. I’m already following a lot of you, but if I haven’t found you yet please let me know your Instagram name in a comment below . . . and you too can become a part of my latest obsession!
