Project Inspire{d} Week #59 Linky Party and Features

 Welcome to this week’s Project Inspire{d} ~ I’m so glad you’re here! 

Here’s my usual weekly recap and it’s a bit different than my normal recaps because I only did one post ~ 9 Lovely Ways to Display Hyacinths

9-lovely-ways-to-display-hyacinths  I am not a planner/blogger who does posts in advance…I fly by the seat of my pants and  the reason I only had time for one post was because I had an awesome life experience that taught me a valuable lesson.  I told you last week that I was going to New York City and I was NERVOUS! Well, it turned out that everything went even better than I could have hoped and I’m so glad I didn’t let my fears stand in the way of this trip.  I missed my family but the time I was gone was literally a whirlwind filled with a plethora of NEW things for me.  I met the wonderful group of East Coast #VZWBuzz Verizon Lifestyle Bloggers and I was totally spoiled! 

View from Buzzfeed office taken with Nokia Lumia Icon #VZWBuzz We had a day filled with tech demos at the BuzzFeed office.  This picture was taken through the window ~ isn’t it something else?  I didn’t bring my Canon to take pictures and I didn’t need to ~ this photo was taken with my Nokia Lumia Icon. I’m going to have it printed and framed to remind me to embrace new things and adventure.

Buzzfeed Mural taken with Nokia Lumia Icon #VZWBuzz  Here’s a picture of a mural in the offices ~ my youngest son wants me to paint this in his room ~ unless this comes in stencil form that’s not happening! 

Buzzfeed Stickers Nokia Lumia Icon #VZWBuzz and here’s some BuzzFeed stickers….I did take some for the boys but I think I’m going to keep them for myself ;)
