pin it forward: what home means to me

 yay today is my day to pin it forward! pin it forward is the second installment of blog it forward put together by the lovely victoria of sfgirlbybay. this time around victoria has teamed up with pinterest! what is pinterest you ask? it's an awesome new visual bookmarking tool, where you can save images you find on the web and organize them into inspiration boards. it's super fun and a great aid for us bloggers out there. here is a peek at some of the boards i have started!

now it's time to share with you "what home means to me." also, don't forget to check out the schedule to see what other bloggers are pinning it forward today!


oregon is the state i call my home. i've lived here 5 years and plan on never leaving this beautiful place! pin via ohsobeautifulpaper

i love coming home taking a deep breath, kicking off my shoes and enjoying a good book and a nice hot cup of coffee. it's the little things that make me really happy. pins via williamdohman, seenandsaid, stumptown coffee, factory20.

the lovely smell of fresh baked bread, warm soup on a cold winter evening, flavorful herbs growing on the windowsill. they are all things that always make me think of home. pins via prettyand, sfgirlbybay, troski-ask, beverlyhsu, paleandinteresting, sunday suppers.

the seasons here in portland, oregon are fantastic! spring and summer are my favorite times of the year. i love heading down to the farmers market to grab fresh fruit and veggies each week. knowing where my food comes from and connecting with the farmers that grow it is really special to me. pins via ben mcleod, blubirdvintage, etsy, ohjoy, honeyandjamphotos.

to me home is about enjoying the simple pleasures, living every moment like it's your last, and loving like your cup is overfilled! pins via tina lee studio, sacredlotus, decor8, sacredlotus, violetjulia.


next on the pin it forward schedule is cyn from dog river prints. make sure to stop by tomorrow and see what home means to her!

first of all- where can I find Helvetica cookie cutters! love those..
second of all--love your thoughts on what home means to you-especially the "rest your hand and unwind" section. Home is such a place to destress & gather your thoughts of the day, I love it!
