Pink

My favorite color has always been pink.  I’m partial to light pink but an occasional flash of fuchsia will grab my attention as well.

For example;  I’ve decorated with pink and was delighted when blush started making its way into current design inspiration photos, My wardrobe includes stacks of pink sweaters and sweatshirts,  I tried very hard to find a pink bike when I was searching for new wheels but I ultimately settled on a different color when I couldn’t find what I was envisioning, and this past Christmas I  was surprised with a pink laptop when my old one pooped out.

Without a doubt, the best pink surprise I’ve recently been given was when I was told Pink Ribbon Girl would be ours.  Yes, we are getting a Newfoundland puppy and the breeder decided that our family would be the best match for Pink Girl.  I was secretly hoping that would be the case but it certainly feels like we were destined for each other!

We will be picking her up Saturday, and I’m sure she will be the inspiration for many blog posts in the future, so stay tuned!IMG_0639

Unravel

I guess the daily prompt is as good a place to start as any.  I’ve dropped out of the blogging world, and quite frankly all of my normal routines because of a tragedy that has unravelled everything.

I have written about this before, going through the day, facing average triumphs, aggravations and light moments when a phone call suddenly turns the world upside-down.  I am now facing the task of figuring out how to get through the day when there is a gigantic hole in my heart that used to be filled by someone so very dear to me.

I’m sure the time will come when I will be ready to write about the details.  For now, sitting down, savoring a well made latte and trying to write again is about as much as I can do.
