A cliffside view from Ravello, Italy
When Mr. Wonderful and I were on our honeymoon in Italy a few months ago, I realized something about travel that I'd never thought of before. One of the reasons I love vacationing so much is the continuous visual stimulation. Everywhere you look, there is something new to see.
Walking around a city like Rome or Capri or Paris or Memphis, you're going to encounter things of beauty everywhere you look.
I don't think I ever realized what a glutton I am for beauty. Seeing lovely things both calms and excites me.
Which is why I'm now addicted to Pinterest.
I resisted the urge to sign up for it for several months. And then one day a friend sent a recommendation email and I caved. If you're not familiar with the site, go check it out. It's a girls' eye candy dream come true. Gorgeous house interiors, cute outfit ideas, hairstyles, DIY projects, funny quotes, recipes—anything cool that's on the Internet seems to be getting pinned. I have now lost hours scrolling through the images on that site. It's a fantastic escape.
Almost as good as traveling.
While I'm talking eye candy, I'll leave you with this little snapshot from my Etsy store. Ooooh pretty colors, right? Have a great weekend!
