Here’s the thing: I love using Snapchat as a way to document my everyday life, but I have no interest in using it as a blogging tool. It’s totally cool if you do, but I can only worry about my “personal brand” so much. (Not that I’m necessarily inauthentic with what I post on other media, but I’m more deliberate about it.) Anyway, this is a long winded way of saying I love Snapchat, won’t be asking you to follow me on there, and I’m obsessed with their geofilters. It’s like your own little postcards! So before I do a full-blown Vancouver recap, I thought I’d share some of my snaps:
Goodness gracious, is America beautiful or what? I’ve been busy the last ten days exploring the West Coast, and it’s given me a whole new appreciation for this country I’m lucky to call home! Lots and lots more photos to come eventually, but I wanted to share some of my favorite iPhone shots.
Earlier this month (during our March heatwave actually) I attended annual Philadelphia Flower Show. It’s a big local event hosted by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. This year’s theme was Explore America, in honor of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. I’m not the most outdoorsy person, but I love flowers and it’s absolutely crazy what people can do with plants.
This cool buffalo greeted people at the entrance! Adorable, right?
Because Philadelphia, obviously.
This awesome floral chandelier was one of my favorites!
Now this is a gardening hat (sorry, such a bad pun)!
Tulips are my favorite.
This orchid was stunning.
The Flower Show was definitely a good experience, but since tickets are on the pricey side, I’m not sure I can make this an annual tradition (even this year, my friend and I got free admission through another friend). I can also see how I would appreciate the warm and colorful environment even more if we were in the middle of a real winter! Either way, it was a great way to spend an evening after work — sometimes I forget how nice it is to just walk and talk. (Speaking of which, wear comfy shoes!)
