Things I Adore :: Pinterest

It was easy for me to decide what I wanted to share for my next “Things I Adore” post: Pinterest! I have only been a member of this site for a couple of weeks, and I’m already obsessed. You know how some people check Facebook 20 times a day (even when they’re at work)? Well, I can be caught pinning just as much.

You see, Pinterest really feeds into all of the things I love. It’s like a virtual pin board. If you see something you like, you pin it. And you can have several boards going at once. Currently, I have a board for quotes I love, a board for places I want to visit, a board for home decorating inspiration… well, you get the idea. If you love looking at pretty things and daydreaming even half as much as I do, you must check this site out.

One of my favorite uses for Pinterest is to keep track of photos that inspire me. Sometimes it’s the light, sometimes it’s the styling, sometimes I don’t even know what it is–these are just photos that I love. This is a great place for my clients to get ideas, too! I would love for a couple to say, “We saw this photo on your Pinterest board and would love to try it.”

Pinterest is also an amazing resource for couples planning their wedding. It is so easy to make an inspiration board! I’ve even started my own dream wedding board. Why not? This is the perfect way to make sure your wedding is cohesive and built around a story. (BTW: Yes–my story is Marie-Antoinette-eats-cotton-candy-while-petting-bunnies.)

Go ahead. Give Pinterest a try. I dare you not to adore it, too!
