Some Instagram shots from the week

As readers of this blog and my twitter followers know, I’m downright obsessed with Instagram. I love the app because it lets me customize and get artsy with my iPhone pictures. It makes me feel like a photographer. This week I took a few pictures that I thought came out pretty cool.

I noticed this marker on the sidewalk in Bridgewater and had to stop to take a picture of it. I thought it was an interesting thing to find while I was on my walk around town center. I think it’s so cool that Bridgewater was founded as a town only 36 years after the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth.

This next picture is of Boyden Hall, the big landmark building on the BSU campus. I really liked the way the light was coming through the trees and the Boyden facade in the background. It was such a gorgeous evening on Sunday when I went for a walk.

This picture was also from my walk on Sunday. Once again, I liked the way the light was coming through the trees and I really liked the old-timey feel of the West Campus light post. I love the definition of the branches in this photo!

This last picture is from Thursday when I visited my dad at his office. I am of the opinion that he has the best view of Merrimack Street and downtown Lowell. This is what he gets to look at every day! Pretty cool if you ask me.

Are any of you as obsessed with Instagram as I am? Share in the comments!

Maddy’s big day out in the city!

Being on spring break, I’ve been spending a lot of time with my dog.  She’s a totally goofball, but I love her because of it.  I was at my mom’s office the other day, and one of her coworkers asked if I could bring Madison into the bank to say hi.  So, since the weather was so nice out (70˚!!), Maddy and I went on a little downtown adventure this afternoon.

Here are some pictures from out fun-filled afternoon!  Maddy tweeted her escapades through the city of Lowell on her very own Twitter account, @Madison_Maine.  First, we stopped at my dad’s office, then we went to the bank to visit all of our friends there.  After that we went on a walk with Mom to Tutto Bene’s.  Finally, we stopped at Brew’d Awakening Coffehaus with Dad for coffee and a bite to eat.  It was an eventful afternoon!

 Below, I’ve got an exclusive interview with my dog, Madison.  She wants to tell you all about her exciting day out.

Me: Madison, how was you day different from most days?

Madison: [wags her tail] translation: it was very fun and interesting.  Most days when everyone goes off to work and school, I’m stuck in the crate.  It was awesome to get out of the house and see where everyone in the family goes when they’re away from me!

Me: You were so well behaved around all the people you met today, what’s your secret?

Madison: [sits up] translation: Well, I used to be a show dog before my career shift to being a full-time house dog.  I used to be under constant scrutiny and people were always watching me. I guess I just never know when the paparazzi will be around.

Me: What was your favorite part about your little adventure today?

Madison: [rolls over so I can rub her belly] translation: So many people stopped me to tell me how beautiful I am.  I love it when they do that.

Me: So I take it you had a good time.  Would you go on future adventures?

Madison: [yawns] translation: Well, I had a good time, but I’m exhausted!  I can only handle so much walking around the city, you know?

So, there you have it…a look inside the mind of my crazy dog.  If you want more insights into the life of Maddy, be sure to follow her on Twitter!

xoxo, Karoline
