Okay, so we all (should) know by now that comparison is the thief of
joy, and to never compare your life to someone else's, especially if it's a highlight reel. And we also all know that Instagram is literally just one big highlight reel…right?!?! With that being said, I've
rounded up a few of my favorite Moms on Instagram who are killing this summer thing and may be having a better summer than you and me...at least according to the photos they are posting.
@kelli_murray: Kelli is an artist, and it shines through in her gorgeous photos. We love the beautifully simple and crisp snapshots of this sweet family from Southern California.
@amberthrane: Amber posts lovely images of beaches and
travel and scenery. She will give you wanderlust, I'm warning you. And will
make you dream of late nights at the beach and summer nights spent with your
@sollybabywrap : Elle Rowley, the owner of the Instagram-famous baby
wraps, shares snippets of her family's summer, and it's one that is sure to instill
some envy. From camping and hiking to road trips and hammock swings, you will
want to pack up your car and drive ASAP.
@ohjoy: You may have heard of this popular blogger/designer
before, but if you aren't following her on Instagram, you are missing out. Joy's feed is full of pretty pops of bright colors, cute babies and yummy treats. All
good things. All the time.
@heynataliejean: Natalie has been traveling along the east coast and "over-gramming" her time. And we aren't complaining, not one bit.
@thislittlehouse_: This family of four lives in
Scotland, and the images of castles and Scottish hillsides are dreamy enough as
they are, but include two precious little boys and it makes it that much
better. Claire's snippets of simple summer joys such as picnics in the park and
strolls through meadows will remind you that you don't need to live
extravagantly to have a truly beautiful life.
@ samantha_vickers: This mom and photographer loves sharing images of her summer with her family, and we love the fun that radiates through the pictures!
@latonyayvette: You will love LaTonya's feed for her
gorgeous snippets of summer in New York City with her family. It will make you
long for city life.
@meganjbailey: Because summer should be carefree and spent
with your family, and Megan's summer pictures are just that. If pretty pictures
of a photogenic family are your thing, you must follow along. Her happiness is
@thelittlest: Elizabeth shares beautiful photos of their
summer travels and makes sure to capture those sweet family moments we all wish
would never slip away.
@stephsphotobooth: Stephanie is a beautiful mama who knows what it means to enjoy the
simple pleasures with her family. Summer travels and picnics and beach days abound and will make you want to do the same.
@thealisonshow: If you are in need of some cheering up this
summer, look no further than Alison's Instagram. Full of bright colors and fun
imagery, she has a penchant for life and is sure to put a smile on your face!
Also, the spontaneous dance videos are my favorite.
@amberfillerup: If travel is more your thing, you
will love living vicariously through Amber and her family's summer travels.
Norway, Denmark, Greece, London, yeah, no big deal. Yes, it's okay to be envious. In
fact, it would be weird not to be.
