Pinterest…Pinterest…Peaks My Interest…

(I just came up with the rhyme on the fly…pretty amazing, right?)

My relationship with Pinterest is pretty dysfunctional – kind of a LOVE / HATE relationship.

I LOVE that it’s a seemingly unlimited source of information and inspiration (on whatever peaks your interest…).  I could spend hours perusing the newest, latest, and greatest pins… frantically repining the most exceptional ones to my own measly boards.

Which leads me into the latter half of my (dysfunctional) relationship with this social site.  I can lose countless hours of my day (Seriously.  Poof!  Gone!  3 hours lost to the Pinterest Gods!).  I also begin to have serious “board-envy”.  You might know what I’m talking about.  With all of those insanely savvy people who have the coolest pictures, best recipes, cleverest board names…. How can one measure up!?

Okay, I’m actually getting WAY off topic.

What I wanted to focus on was sharing a few of my favorite Thanksgiving-themed pins with you – to continue giving Thanksgiving its time in the spotlight!

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful holiday.  I may have self-deprecating humor, and joke about how crazy things are around here, but I have to say that I have it pretty good.  I am terribly humbled and grateful for so many things in my life.  I hope that we all can take this time to reflect on the blessings (however great or small) we have been given, and maybe for a moment, just enjoy those things – whatever they may be.


Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I hear ya sister! It’s easy to get gobbled up (yes, that was a turkey pun) by envy watching others seem so effortlessly chic, but the truth is I have it pretty good too. My life is immensely blessed. As Cheryl Crow says, “it’s not having what you want, it’s wanting what you got!”
