Inspiration Boards

I love Pinterest. I remember when my sister Marisa (over at ABM) first showed it to me. I thought it was super confusing and dumb.

Then I figured it out.

I am just so thankful that I didn't know about it while I was planning my wedding. Pinterest is great but it's easy to get caught up in wishing for what you don't have and feeling bad that nothing about your house is "Pinterest Perfect". When I'm on Pinterest I just try to keep some perspective. Just because I pin cute outfits, trendy offices, cozy spaces and quotes with oceans in the background, does NOT reflect my everyday life. And that's ok! Pinterest is just as simple as it is made out to be. It is an online idea/inspiration board and nothing more. If it starts to make me feel down or if I get caught playing the comparison game, I stop.

So although it is a ton of fun to just "pin" the day away, I decided to actually do a real life inspiration board. I wanted something that makes me excited for spring and images that will help inspire blog posts, parties and outfits. I hate throwing away magazines and this is a great way to save my favorite pictures. Will I still have these same images come Christmas 2014? Probably. But for now I will enjoy the little project I managed to squeeze in during nap time.


Happy April!
