B.P. Before Pinterest

Before Pinterest there were binders. I know I'm not alone when I say that I had a neatly organized binder with tabs for organizing all the things that inspired me. I loved this binder. It was so cherished.

I remember the first time I moved into my own apartment and hosted a party. That binder was my go to for what to do and I felt so grown-up implementing such a put together soirĂ©e. 

Since the move that binder has come out into a more attainable spot in my house. Sure some of what I liked 7 years ago has changed but a lot of it still the same. And glossy magazine page tear outs are so much better computer screens. (I'm not saying I'm going back to buying tons of magazine and using this Stone Age binder). But what I do like is the pages with dinner ideas from Real Simple and Martha Stewart Living. Food is a foreign language to me and it feels easier to learn if I can touch the page and see the picture.
