Found this while browsing Pinterest, which now that I have my new IPhone I do a lot. In fact, way to much.

I downloaded the Instagram app but am actually scared to start using it because it will be another distraction.

What did we do with all of our time before, blogs, twitter, facebook and the list goes on?

Journey of a Grown Up Black Woman

I have a complex relationship with my daughter, Jordan.

At 25, she is brilliant and beautiful and headstrong, tenacious and stubborn, and has always been a bit different.  At one moment a consummate hippie desiring to live “off the grid” on the side of a mountain; at another moment, angling for a pink leather Coach purse.  She runs a small independent record label, is a journalist, a social media specialist, promotes and books bands, and has traveled on her own living in Denver and LA and NY.

I agree that this not only makes the space more user-friendly, but also opens up the room and make it seem larger.
