A couple of weeks ago, I challenged you all to be on the look out for magical moments in the midst of the mundane moments of your day. I hosted a challenge on Instagram with the hash tag: #magicinthemundane and I had so much fun seeing what each of you captured. It was so hard to pick my favorites, because there were so many great moments to choose from (there were nearly 400 photos under the hash tag!). Here are 25 of my favorites, but I hope you’ll check out the others under the hash tag over on Instagram, because there really were so many great ones. Thanks to all of you who joined in and made this a fun challenge!

My all time favorite ride at Disneyland is “it’s a small world.” There is something magical about sitting in the boat for a few minutes as you float around the world. The ride encompasses various cultures and destinations in the end reminding us that the world perhaps isn’t quite as big as you think.
For me, Instagram does the same thing. It somehow brings us closer together reminding us that we are all more alike than we realize. It has allowed me to form friendships, be inspired, and get a glimpse into the lives of other mamas some of them here in the same city as me, some of them in other states, and some of them in other countries.

When the newest member of your family arrives, it can be easy to get lost in all the minutiae of caring for your little one – but there are magical moments to be found in all the little details. Each month I feature one mom sharing her magical moment of motherhood. This month, meet Charlotte and her one-year old daughter Lilah as they celebrate a huge milestone they were able to catch on video: baby’s first steps!

Last week, Disney launched their newest app, Story, and it’s already one of my most used, fun and user friendly app that I play with on a daily basis. As a mother of 3, I yearn, on a daily basis, to capture as many little bits and pieces of our lives to hold onto as memories for years to come. Time moves fast, and 3 growing kids move even faster, and I often don’t have the opportunity to quickly whip out my digital camera to capture all the sweet and happy moments I’d like to. But my phone is with me 99% of the time and I now use that to capture a big portion of our moments.
With the advent of the Story app, I can now turn all of those hundreds of iPhone pictures I take on a weekly basis into simple, sweet stories we can all look back on and relive as often as we like.
