Green Pinterest Boards to Follow via mindfulmomma.com

You know how overwhelming Pinterest can be. Like when you feel like the biggest loser because you didn’t have time to bake a rainbow cake for an after school snack like all those other moms did. Yeah, that. For Pinterest to be fun instead of defeating, I think you need to have the right attitude about it. Pinterest with a purpose – not Pinterest the soul-sucking competition. Do you agree?
