I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with Instagram. Of the many social media platforms that I spend my time on, Instagram is definitely one of my favorites. I love being able to get a small glimpse into the lives of people from all around the world.
I love being able to follow other moms and connect with them about our daily lives in motherhood. Instagram has definitely inspired me to take more pictures of the girls and capture the little moments in life. It’s also inspired me to find other moms who are living lives similar to mine. Being a mom in a huge city is definitely different than life in the suburbs. Rather than life being filled with cars and trips to Target (oh how I miss that place), I’m pushing my stroller around or taking the train or bus to get me to my favorite city spot.
Take a look at some of my favorite moms to follow on Instagram that give you a peek into their lives living in a big city.

@outtoplay 2 of 11Anna lives in West Yorkshire, UK and gives us a glimpse into life on the other side of the pond. Not only does she share amazing photos of her three children exploring their beautiful city, but she also shows off her stunningly beautiful portraits that she paints. I love seeing her photos in my feed for the great use of natural light and warmth to her photos.

@heartandhabit 5 of 11I always smile when I see Brandy's photos in my Instagram feed because they are filled with so much joy. Her photos of her two beautiful children enjoying their wonderful city of Toronto are so fun and energetic. Her family truly knows how to enjoy the city that they live in and it is so evident in the photos that Brandy shares.

@amommyinthecity 11 of 11Yes, it's me. Shameless plug. Since moving from the suburbs in Florida to the city of New York, I am always in awe that I actually get to call this place home. I'll take you on our daily adventures from around our apartment, Central Park, or just exploring the streets of the concrete jungle.
