I’m addicted to Pinterest as much as the next mom; I’ve found a whole lot of amazing decorating and dinner ideas there. I’m grateful to the über-creative people coming up with them. But there are times when I reach my pin-point—as in, I can’t take another suggestion. And not just because I feel guilty for not packing fruit kabobs in my kids’ lunch boxes or that perusing wedding-dress boards has become a real time-suck (I’ve been happily married for 12 years).
I get overwhelmed by all the pin-spiration. Life is too short to make most everything you put into your mouth or home precious, fancy or meaningful. Mess can be beautiful! Giving kids canned, extremely-un-homemade ravioli is not yet a crime punishable by law! In the famous words of my mom, “Perfect, shmerfect.”
Guaranteed, you won’t see any of these any of these craft, food or style photos on Pinterest. And that’s a good thing.
