Enhance Your Instagram Stories

I am constantly inspired by the bloggers I follow. I love learning how they optimize the different social platforms to really build their brand.

Instagram Stories has been getting more popular than Snapchat these days. I admit I only get on Snapchat because they have better filters than Instagram at the moment. My kids and I have a lot of fun checking out what fun new filters pop up.

However, I have noticed bloggers/Instagram ladies utilizing Instagram Stories to grow their reach through product reviews, sharing real-life snaps and just engaging their audience.

I enjoy viewing everyone’s Instagram stories because I get to learn more about the people I follow. I love to hear the voices behind the profile and seeing the behind the scene snaps of your real life.

There are some fun tips and tricks to making your stories more fun and engaging and I wanted to share some of those tips and tricks I’ve learned recently from reading different posts and from asking my favorite Insta-friends.

Currently Cruzans

I cannot believe August is already almost over. Today I’m just sharing what’s going on lately with my little* family.
*I started saying “little” family when Ava was born… add three more babies and we aren’t that little anymore :)

1. Ava and Lily started school 2 weeks ago at their new school. It’s been pretty great so far. They seem to like their teachers and have made new friends already. I cannot believe I have a 2nd grader and a kindergartener!


2. Mia turned 3 months old this month. She’s such a joy. I’m so thankful she’s been a happy baby from the very beginning. She is nursing like a champ and only really cries when she’s hungry or sleepy. She smiles at our familiar faces and we even caught her first laugh during bath time last night! She loves to coo at us and her cheeks are my favorite!

3. I am starting to feel like myself more and more with each day. I had a bout of baby blues right before coming back to work and I think with everything going on from baby to moving to going back to work, the postpartum blues was amplified. I think since we have ironed out our new daily routine it has helped me find some balance but I still need to work on myself. However, that is for another post.

4. I’m getting excited to start decorating for fall. This will be my first holiday in the new house so I am slowing picking up items here and there to start gathering my fall collection. I am loving the fall farmhouse vibes. I can’t wait to show you all. This photo cracked me up. Is this anyone else?
