So I'm officially on Pinterest. 

It's pretty awesome. 

I wasn't planning on joining, but I was checking out my analytics for the first time in months and there was a whole lot of traffic coming my way from Pinterest. Low and behold, people had been pinning me. How sweet!

I'm just getting started, but if you would like to follow me, you can find my pins here

I really love the idea of Pinterest. 
I love having a place where all my favorite ideas are nice and tidy together. 

Of course, Pinterest has that really annoying effect of making you feel completely inept. 

You think you like your bathroom, but then you find hundreds of ideas to make it better. 

Thousands of ways your wardrobe could be improved. 

Countless (countless) ways to delight your family with new culinary delights. 

The other day we had a lovely little snow. I didn't really feel like heading out with the kids this time, so they went out to play in the backyard and I promised a yummy treat when they were done. 

I went over to Pinterest and found a new cookie recipe. 
It sucked and they burned.

We made snow ice cream instead. We used almond milk, sugar and vanilla. 

I think they liked it better. 

Don't forget, Pinterest, Blogging, Twitter, all of's just for fun. Don't let it make you feel like you aren't measuring up. It's just to add a little spice. A few ideas. Not to take over your world. 
Not to distract you completely. 

At the end of the day, the people who matter most won't care if you serve gourmet cookies, or snow ice cream. Just as long as you are there with them enjoying it.

Yes, Pinterest can make you feel a little inadequate sometimes, but I love using it to keep track of projects I want to do & recipes I want to try. :) Following you now!

Totally true! I was pinning all these wonderful ideas and recipes and then one day I decided I was spending more time pinning than actually doing them. :) I guess as with all things in our lives it's about finding a nice balance--somedays that is harder than others but our relationships are the most important things we can spend our time on for sure!

Maybe I will have to join too. I forget that it's still winter in other parts of the world. Wish I could get some of that. Miss those beautiful snowy NW days.
