It's a fine-balance with social media these days. It engulfs in so many ways, as long as a phone or computer are part of our daily routine. Just as it feels all-encompassing, it also serves its purpose. A few years ago, I met Sarah through Instagram. She's a talented birth & family photographer in Fairbanks. A few weeks ago, I got to meet her in-person. It was wonderful spending the afternoon with her and her family, in-between hockey tournament games. Their warm, cozy home opened its arms to me, filled to the brim with childhood- the curiosity, the creative, the chaos, the calm. I left content, knowing that social media made this real-life connection happen. I also left with a pan of delicious chocolate brownies, allergy-friendly, something else we share and also discovered from social media.
Sarah and family.
