I’m back…a little bit

Well, I’ve been gone for a while. It is always a little strange feeling to be away from this blog. I’m still trying to get my feet back under me after such a long break – from school and our normal routine. I’m still a blogger at heart, but I do really enjoy the quick nature of Instagram. As I slowly ease myself back into my routine of school, work and blogging, I thought I’d share a slideshow from 2016. I need to find an evening to curl up with a coffee, my electric blanket and read old posts. Sharing slideshows like this is really for me down the road.

I used the app Flipagram to put together a few of my favorite phone pictures from 2016. It took me about 4 minutes. You just download the app and then pick pictures from your phone camera roll. The quality doesn’t look so good online, but on my computer and phone it looks great. You can also save and text your slideshow, so if you don’t want it posted online you can still share it with family and friends.

I can’t figure out how to get it to embed in WordPress and I’m too tired to figure it out right now…so, if you click on the picture it will take you to the slideshow.

Happy New Year and thank you for sticking around here!

  • Rhonda - Good morning….anxious to watch the video…..nothing happens when I try to play it.

  • AshleyAnn - Rhonda – Note to self…don’t blog with a sinus infection! I got it working now 🙂

  • jenn - oh my goodness i love that. they are all so awesome. i may need to try something similar. thanks for sharing

  • Peg - Can you adjust the speed, it is so fast?

  • Cindy - Nothing happens for me either…the link doesn’t work… 🙁

  • AshleyAnn - Peg – it is fast. I think when you create it you can make it faster or slower. I used so many pictures, I just went for a quick slideshow. You can’t adjust the speed after it is made.

  • AshleyAnn - Cindy – Click the image. Next it should open up a different page. Click the white arrow in the middle of the image for it to start.

  • Tiffany - Those are so fun!!!

  • Lindsey Claire - That was great! I love Flipagram!! You can also add short video clips and keep or mute the sound. 🙂

  • Diana - I so enjoyed this! I know nobody’s family is perfect but I like how you focus on the positives and how they make you happy. Happy 2017!

  • Rhonda - What a great video….love all the pictures that show your amazing photography skills. Happy New Year!

  • Ashley - Ashley!! So beautiful!! Will you share the worship song?? I love it! Like always, you inspire me to capture the beauty of my days.

  • Amy S - Ashley, I really enjoy watching the slideshow, but it’s a little too fast . Can you set it a little slower? Thanks 🙂

  • ellen patton - Your photos are the best!!

  • RaD - I liked it but… well, they moved so fast there was little time to soak them in. I guess because they are your pictures the memories they recall come in that instant. I love it either way, but if it were me making it (which I LOVE to do) it would be a bit slower in order to saturate you with the beauty of the moment.

    Song was awesome too. Rend Collective, am I right?

  • bethanyb - love it,the photos, the music and all. <3 thank you for keeping sharing when others have given up the task of writing each day. You and your family are such a breath of fresh air.

  • AshleyAnn - Thank you Bethany 🙂
