Instagram and

Wildflowers in Joshua Tree National Park

I’m not an Instagram star. I don’t have tens of thousands of followers and I don’t make a million dollars posting photos on the app. But I love it so much. I love taking pictures and documenting our life in Los Angeles. I love seeing what other people are doing, where they are going, what they’re eating and how they express themselves. After all of these years of plugging away and not knowing if anyone was watching, I got an email from I was chosen as one of the Top 25 Maker Moms on Instagram!

They featured this photo in the post:


It was taken at the Wisdom Tree during my birthday hike in Griffith Park. We also hiked to the Hollywood Sign and Cahuenga Peak that day. I was happy they picked that picture because it captures what I try to do with my Instagram feed, which is to share the beautiful and the interesting in Los Angeles and on my travels. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the past few months.

Arroyo Burro Dog Park near Santa Barbara

This was taken during Spring Break at Arroyo Burro Dog Park near Santa Barbara. It’s one of the photos that I hashtag #Viewfrommyrun.

Gluten free lemon almond cookies

I took this picture during a video shoot MomsLA did with Healthy Grocery Girl. Find the cookie recipe on MomsLA.

Hiking trail in Canada near Banff National Park

The picture above was posted with a quote – “I see my path, but I don’t kow where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel.” Rosalia de Castro. I took it while on a trip to Canada with Ford.
Ready for the rain at Disneyland

There are a lot of pictures of my family in my feed. I love this one we took at Disneyland.

Thanks to for including me in this group of talented Maker Moms!
