We got married in March of 2011. In April 2011, I was reading about this website that a blogger couldn’t stop raving about called Pinterest. I checked it out and you couldn’t just sign up. You had to be invited or submit your email address and they would eventually send you an invitation. Since I knew no one on the site I submitted my email and waited several days before I received an invitation. Once I did, I couldn’t believe it. There in front of my eyes was pretty much everything I wanted in order plan my wedding…just one month too late. Honestly, if I had found the website a month before the wedding I would have stressed myself out way more than I already was trying to include new ideas I found. I would have accumulated those gray hairs that graciously waited to make an appearance after the kids were born and wished we had just eloped.
But this isn’t about wedding planning or gray hairs and it’s only vaguely about Pinterest. See, one of the many things that I love about Pinterest is that when you look at your boards as a whole you begin to see patterns and pick up on things that subconsciously drew you to pin certain pictures. Take my kitchens board for example, apparently I am not only a huge fan of white kitchens but I am also really digging the whole runner rug in the kitchen look. I mean seriously, look at some of these beauties I found on Pinterest.
