Hello, friends! My name is Melissa Blake, and I am so honored to be guest posting on Aarean's beautiful blog. My blog, So About What I Said, follows my life with a physical disability, but today, I'm so excited that I get to write about something a bit more light-hearted...
A case of the blues. Green with jealousy. Red-faced and angry. Colors have always been such a good tool for describing our feelings. No matter how we feel, there's always a color to go along with it. Color has always played an important role in my life, and from a young age, my favorite colors were the bright, poppy ones: Pinks and yellows and oranges. They match my personality, and that's no coincidence. Aren't our favorite colors part of who we are? Need proof? Check out these 5 color inspirations that never fail to make me smile...
Balloons have always put a smile on my face, and these limited-edition Valentine's Day balloons by Geronimo are extra special.
Yellow just screams spring to me -- a time of rebirth and renewal. And nothing screams yellow better than a beautiful sunflower!
My mom is known in our family for taking lots of vacation photos. Her favorite subject? The water. She took this photo of the Gulf of Mexico years ago, and I low how the serenity seems to just jump out of the photo.
I'm from Illinois, so falls in the Midwest have always been magical times in my family. One of my favorite traditions growing up was the annual trip to the local apple orchard. We'd pet the animal, eat some fresh apple cider donuts and pick gorgeous red apples. The field seemed to go on for miles with rows and rows of apple trees, and it was so fun to try and find the reddest one!
Pastel always reminds me of childhood for some reason (maybe because they're the colors of Easter), but these pastel rings have been on my wish list for a few months now.
I'd love to know, friends: What role has color played in your life? Do you think color is a reflection of our personality? What are your favorite colors?
