Knock-knock!

Have you looked around lately? You can’t help but notice that orange is beginning to come into its own all around us. Orange is the color of transition, the color of change. It’s vibrant, emotional, positive, and organic while being spontaneous, full of energy and warmth. It’s the WAKE UP color! Right now it’s giving us the message of changing seasons, leaving the heat of summer and preparing for the cold of winter. All of that energy has given me the push to “get er movin”, something that’s been long overdue for me.  It’s all good so for me, change is in order and happening, a good thing. I hope orange is helping to give you a push if you need one.

Have a good week!

Yellow Sunshine!

After weeks of rain, rain, rain, we finally had a week filled with sunshine. I wonder if people who don’t have rainy day after rainy day can fully appreciate the feeling of warmth and happiness of the sun shining on their face.  Hmm, I wonder; I know I can. Anyway, I loved all that sunshine this week and it made me think of yellow. So let’s celebrate yellow. Yellow represents happiness and optimism. It’s stimulating, it’s hope when things seem down, it’s cheerful and oh so positive. It can’t help but make us feel good.

So this week…close your eyes and pretend to skip down the yellow brick road. Or you can bop your head from side to side while singing “We all live in a Yellow Submarine” while you look up and enjoy the warm sun on your face. I’ll bet you smile. Enjoy this week’s pics, they’re YELLOW.

We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine……
