The teacher in me loves a chalkboard. Steve was saying he wanted a whiteboard to hang in the kitchen for list making. The boy loves his lists. I told him instead we should look for a chalkboard, since they’re all the rage right now. I happened to be in Marshalls on Sunday and found a chalkboard that goes perfectly in our kitchen. It has a white shabby-chic frame around it. Total score! Instead of lists, I decided to use this for messages. I absolutely adore quotes, sayings, song lyrics…anything inspiring really. I have a whole collection of them on Pinterest. Chances are whatever I’m feeling or have going on in my life, someone has already been through it and probably already wrote about it/said it better than I ever could.
“Derek says it’s always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can’t top it, steal from them and go out strong.” – American History X
See, right there’s a perfect example. I plan on changing the message weekly. I ordered these chalk markers which are much neater than having all that chalk dust around and easier to write with.
So I guess we’ll have to figure something else out for Steve’s lists. 🙂
All you need is love,
