Love Is In the Air with Pinterest ~ A PINspiration Blog Hop

PINspiration Blog HopToday, I am joining in the fun of the PINspiration Blog Hop hosted by Disney Living.  I am so excited because this blog hop gives me a real excuse for being on Pinterest, other than sitting in amazement at what great ideas people have and have shared!

I was really avoiding Pinterest because I figured it would just be another thing to keep me busy and away from all the other things I really need to be concentrating on.  Well, guess what?  I was right!  I cannot get enough of it!  As someone who has interests that span pretty much everything, I have had a great time collecting recipes, cake decorating tips and inspirations, scrapbook layouts and more great Cricut projects (and that is just the tip of the iceberg of ideas I have discovered!).  Being someone who is a little less creative than others, it has truly been inspirational (and motivating) to see all that Pinterest has to offer.  But my favorite board to work on is my 20th Anniversary Vow Renewal Board, in which I am finding all sorts of great ideas on what I would like to have at my own vow renewal.

Let me back up just a little though.  We haven't officially made plans to have a vow renewal.  I have four and a half years to convince my husband what a great idea this is.  I figure starting the board will give me a fun place to start.  That way when I finally convince Pierre we need to have a vow renewal, I will already have all sorts of ideas in one place!

So far, I have a found a few wedding cakes, venue ideas, flowers and have even pinned the Alfredo Angelo princess dresses because though they may not be appropriate for a vow renewal, they are beautiful and of course, I can dream!  Being able to see everyone's ideas come together, it is certainly inspiring and makes me want to have a vow renewal even more than I did before, especially when I saw the Beauty and the Beast Cake!  To see better details of my board, you can find it over on Pinterest at 20th Anniversary Vow Renewal (Disney Ideas).

Have you renewed your vows at a Disney resort?  I would love to hear about it!

Has Pinterest inspired you lately?  If so, make sure you share it over at the PINspiration Blog Hop hosted by Disney Living!

Beth this is a great idea, My hubby and I talked about it and definitely want to do. That was a big part of the inspiration this month Blogorail post -- I have a pic of the Cinderella topped white diamond wedding cake.  It is so beautiful i want it ;-)

I hope you can convince him! We are talking about doing a vow renewal for our 10 year anniversary that is 3 and half years away. I love what you have pinned. :)

Me too!  I would love to have our kids there for it.  That would be so special!

Thank you, Kathy! I figure if I start now on my husband I have plenty of time to convince him without nagging him! :-)

Thank you!  We once saw a couple renewing their vows in the gazebo at Port Orleans Riverside along the Sassagoula River.  That is what got my wheels turning! :-)  Pinterest is such a great place to get all my ideas in one place.  Whoever came up with it is a genius!

We had no Disney elements to our wedding, other than the song Whole New World from Aladdin.  Now that I have converted Pierre to a Disney fan, I am hoping it will make convincing him easier!
