I think of this as the age of Instagram. Maybe you feel differently, but I feel Instagram has become THE social media network. Close second is Snapchat.
One is very, very filtered and pretty, and about strategy, while the other is unfiltered, kind of weird and quirky. They're both awesome in their own respect.

January 1st was the end of Taylor and my Instagram hashtag challenge for #MyHolidaySpark. There were over 4,000 photos in just one month! Here are some favorites from the challenge:

All I can say is that people are incredibly creative and talented. I adore all your photos. Also, I'm very sad the holiday season is over. Now I get to focus on the next task at hand… turning 29 on Thursday.

Need a new hashtag to add to your insta posts? #PhotosInBetween is my personal favorite…

If you're still feeling like you're in the holiday spirit and you'd like to give back, check out “A Dollar Campaign“.
This charity only asks for $1 from donors to benefit  pediatric cancer research. Check out the details here or find them on Facebook.
