Have you ever been somewhere and seen something that is impossible to capture on film?

I'm assuming the answer is yes.

Lately I've been feeling a little nostalgic for the days of living abroad.

Probably because I know now that we will not be moving...ever again probably? GULP.

I'm starting to forget things about Asheville, Norway, Edinburgh, and Austin. The little things, places, foods, bus tokens, etc. Makes me sad is an understatement.

While I love Pinterest for finding new recipes or style inspiration, my favorite use for it is to create curated boards that mean something special to me.

For a little while, I've been sporadically pinning to a secret board called "places that shape me."

I don't want to forget where I've lived.

So I began pinning images that make me remember. Most of them are places I would frequent often, things that stood out, my actual apartment/house, or general landscapes. This pin board is still a work in progress...I'm always trying to pin little things as I remember them. If you're looking for a new and fun way to journal/scrapbook, I suggest giving it a whirl...it's a really fun experience! I have loved finding old haunts via Google image searches. We live in a truly crazy world. I'm grateful.

I've recently made that board public, feel free to take a look.
