Oh, let’s do this, Salted Caramel Macaroon Thumbprint Cookies. It’s good, blah, blah, blah. Really, it is. No, no need to wax on about it.
Let’s talk about what’s really bugging me today. Instagram. Now by all accounts I love it. It’s my favorite social media channel—you know when I don’t love it?
I don’t love it when I’m horrified that my husband’s always private feed turns public—unbeknownst to me. I discovered it was public after tagging him on my feed. ACK! to seeing some of the worst pics of me on a feed for all to view. Call me vain, yes, I know—but really, I shudder.
Want to know the best part of those awful nauseating-inducing pics? My husband told me that’s how he sees me—beautiful—dressed up or down.
I know, how can I not love him more for that? So I totally suck, because even after that I asked him to pull the pics and he gave me a big “Nope”. Ah well. I guess someone has to keep the vanity in check.
