29 Instagram Accounts You Should Follow

What’s your favorite social media outlet? Mine by far is Instagram. It’s got the visual appeal of Pinterest with the social interaction that you find on Facebook.

702 Archives: Pops of Red for Valentine’s Day

This story was originally posted here. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m not a red person. It’s just not my favorite color (unless we’re talking about NC State — Go Pack!). In fact, we don’t really have any red in our house other than the art in our master bathroom.

It’s just the pop that room needed!

While I totally respect and admire a bright red room, it’s just not something you’re going to find in my house. But each year when February rolls around, I can’t help but be drawn to a few red things in honor of Valentine’s Day. So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite red pops!

So instead of stuff, I thought it would be fun to give the gift of time together in the form of an unusual activity!
