A mere week ago, Geoffrey and I were driving back from our trip to Edmonton, Alberta. We went there for a major buying trip for The Little Barn, coupled with a near end to the summer holiday. I love that city so much. It will always remain one of my favourite places to live in, and it is the place that I aspire to end up when planning out my latest adventures and life goals.
Rather than taking along my camera, I decided to Instagram the entire trip instead. I’m beginning to regard Instagram as the highest form of social media. In my opinion, Facebook is filled with useless information about people that I am barely acquainted with, bad photos, and horrible grammar. Twitter is something that I cannot wrap my head around and am not yet clever nor interesting enough to spew out witty one-liners every few hours. Instagram, ah, she’s something else. Here is a tight-knit community of artists, poets, travellers, lost souls, and Facebook wanders who come together to discover new places, meet new faces, and experience beauty in a square photo. Well, minus the Facebook-ers. I love it.
So, my friends, here are my photos from our trip!
Tips to a successful road trip: 1. Mac computer 2. One digital camera 3. One Polaroid camera 4. Tripod 5. Numerous cords 6. Cute clothing 7. Vitamins What are your must-haves?
My husband lets me dress him in my wish list until I’m ready to pay. Sweetest. Man. Ever.

So, if you have Instagram, add me @hello_scarlett_blog so I can connect with you, too, on a deeper level. Did that sound creepy? A more intimate level? A more personal level? A more photographic level? You get the picture. The square picture.
Have a lovely week!
