How can staying at home with an infant be both exhilarating and mind-numbing at the same time? This morning my son grabbed a toy he was interested in. He grabbed it, instead of batting at it. This is HUGE news! Like, his brain had to grow a million times for him to be able to utilize his opposable thumb. When things like that happen, you clap, you cheer, and then you realize you just got excited over a baby grabbing a toy. It’s back to the same old, same old. Nurse, clean house, put baby to sleep, work on blog, change diaper, repeat.
One thing I don’t understand about Pinterest is all the quotes that people pin. I pin things for future reference: a recipe I’m going to try later, I scarf I want to purchase for winter, a beautiful kitchen I want to recreate in my dream house. But quotes? Do people go back to those later to just get inspired? Having worked in social media marketing, I know it should be a part of every brand’s social media strategy to include inspirational quotes and post them in the morning. These posts tend to get the most engagement, but I just really always thought they were a little too sweet.
We will be shaking up the design of this blog pretty soon, so this weekend I bought some fonts and a watercolor package. I wanted to play with them a bit, so I decided to make my own inspirational quote posts taken directly from daytime TV. Feel free to pin them, print them and share them as I’m sure they will inspire you too. Who knows? Perhaps one day I’ll turn them into greeting cards.
