Looking For Something?

Either you are totally obsessed with Pinterest or you are sick of hearing about it. I think it’s kind of polarizing, you know, like cilantro.
I happen to be loving on it (speaking of, follow me so I can follow you!) because there is just such a diversity of stimulus out there: recipes! gorgeous photos! fashion inspiration! home decor ideas! I mean you name it, and someone has pinned it. I love the fact that it is such a visual medium: I can just stare at awesome things and then every once in a while click, and it’s tagged in an online bookmarking system FOREVER. Victory.
One of the boards I made for myself is Words of Wisdom (or maybe that board came pre-assigned and I added to it, who knows?) but I have thoroughly enjoyed adding to it and here are a few favorites:

What is not to love about that kind of internet time suck, right?
I also enjoy the fact that the more stuff you pin the more your own personal style becomes super obvious. I started pinning home decor ideas that I enjoyed because I feel like I have NO SENSE OF STYLE when it comes to decorating, but when you look at the board — HELLO color trends! Obviously I do have a style that I’m attracted too.
Plus now I have a place to put all the haircuts I am too scared to try in real life. And of course, a very easy way to show Garrett the kind of engagement rings I think about…you know, in my dreams! (Yeah, you can bet I sent him the link to that board. haha!)
Anyway, since it’s Thursday I thought we all might need a little inspiration to get us through until Friday.
