First, I’ll apologize for being radio silent for the past few weeks but for those of you who follow my Instagram account you understand. For those of you who don’t, I have been on vacation in Italy, a wonderful, fabulous vacation. And it’s taken me a long time to learn this, but when I’m on vacation, I’m on vacation. Which means no work email and no blogging. However, I’m very excited for the next few weeks as I have a lot of creative energy and ideas to unleash on you all that have been piling up over my break.

So in the spirit of Italy is my first post back. There are definitely some ingenious Instagram accounts out there that we all know and love but this was a new one for me. And on the coattail of my trip, I think it’s just fabulous. The account is called, Not My Nonni (genius) and is the brainchild of blogger Tiana Kai, who lives and works in Florence, Italy.

I have personally always had an obsession with older people. They have so much personality and depth and usually a strong point-of-view as well as having this untouchable wisdom of life. All things I value. Couple that with an international flair and you’ve got a winner.

Tiana has been documenting the older set in Italy and users are now using her has tag #notmynonni which she adds to her feed. It’s just brilliant. Take a look below at some of my favorites and make sure to follow @notmynonni for a little extra feel good imagery each morning in your Instagram feed.
