I'm sure many of you hip to the blogging world have already heard of Pinterest, a website where you pin things you find interesting from anywhere on the internet. Hence the name. Anyway, I signed up months ago and never did anything more with it than selfishly use it to keep track of a few photography ideas and recipes. It wasn't until I found myself with some free time last week that I really dove in and started to experience all the site has to offer. Now I'm absolutely addicted! I've whiled away hours browsing others' pins and have added over 200 new pins in the past four days. Madness! It's a site chock full of beauty, style, and inspiration. I'm even using it as an outlet to plan that dream wedding I never got to have because I was too frugal and practical when my actual wedding rolled around to splurge on anything nice like a dress, flowers, or a cake. Since I find myself regretting that so much (although not regretting that we were able to afford to buy a house a month after our court house wedding) it's been fun to pin pictures of pretty dresses and centerpieces even if I'll never get a chance to use those ideas.
You do have to request an invite and wait for approval if you want to set up an account but I have yet to hear of anyone being denied one. I guess that's just a way to make us all feel more special for being granted the privilege of using the site.
If you already have an account please look me up. I haven't done much in the way of following new people yet so I'd be happy to follow you. You can also browse my pins even without logging in if you want to get a better idea of how my crazy mind works. :) I've found it's a great way to organize my enthusiasm for the beautiful things and places in life. What German doesn't like a little organization?
