    Fievel Goes West
    August 1, 2011. My friends convinced me to try this new app, so I was playing around with it while we watched Fievel Goes West (which adults often do, right?). I don't think I followed anyone yet or had any followers, as evidenced by the lack of likes/comments. I wasn't sure if I'd ever get into it. Boy was I wrong.

    I had just downloaded it and was playing around with it while we were in the process of moving so this is my old deck from 2011.

    July 17, 2011. I had no idea what I was doing or what this app was about. I thought it was for artsy photos with cool filters. So, of course I took a picture of this pillow. 🤔

    "Rudy Outside" - 2011
    Artsy filter in full effect WITH frame! The first year of my insta was all animal pics. Heck, lets be honest - 80% of it still is! 😂

    They (and subsequently, I) started sleeping more at 4 months so I thought "hmmm I should probably take photos of my children, right?"

    This picture (of my high school gym) is from Winter Break my sophomore year of college. I guess I had to go 3 months back for an appropriately artsy pic.

    Captioned "nap time with the baby girl💞" (I delete pretty much every picture I post after a while, so this one isn't my actual first post but its the oldest one on my IG)

    I was in the beginning stages of breaking up with my boyfriend of 6 years who I had moved out to LA with. He didn't accompany me to the wrap party for the first tv show I worked on (part of the problem was he wasn't ever very supportive). This old dentist's chair was in the venue and seemed to capture my mood pretty well.

    July 29, 2012. No caption, but I'd borrowed a chainsaw to chop up a big branch that had fallen down in my backyard.
