pin it forward

i am so excited to be kicking off pin it forward! thanks again to victoria for inviting me to be a part of such a fun event. i love inspiration boards and pinterest is such a great way to play with them online. when i thought about "what home means to me," these are the ideas that immediately popped in to my head. i hope you will enjoy them and click over to pinterest to check out the rest of my pinboard!

what home means to me . . .

home is where the heart is. that is for sure. my husband & i have moved around a lot over the past ten years. while i don't always feel completely settled in each physical space that we live in, i know as long as we are together we are home. throw in some color, cozy spots to curl up and read or watch a movie, and a furry friend to cuddle with, and we've got it made.

+++++

a big thanks to victoria & pinterest for organizing pin it forward. now passing the baton to the lovely nichole of little brown pen. i'm looking forward to seeing "what home means" to her, since she splits her time between the NYC area and paris!

this is such a great collection of images, and they're all so you. And having moved around so much, I think it all makes perfect sense. Love it!

So wonderful! I love your gorgeous color picks & sweet hubby and dog! I also love your sense of fun, comfy bed and warm welcome! Let's both get that "hello" sticker and put it on our front doors, yes? ;)

Hey Jodi. Just wanted to say thanks for kicking off pin-it-forward in style. I'm hopelessly jealous of both your puppy and your vintage camera collection. But, mainly your puppy :)

nichole said...

Beautiful. I love that you put the hubby and the dog in the center. ;)

jodi said...

@melissa: yes! we should totally do that.
@ben: thanks so much! my puppy is cute, but he is a handful. that's not actually my camera collection, but the one i have isn't too shabby. ;)
@nichole: thank you! looking forward to seeing your post!

Elizabeth said...

I too need lots of books, cozy nooks, and an inspiring place to work, create, and play. I love you blog too, btw :)
