I've been thinking a lot lately about colors...specifically favorite colors.
What got me going on the subject was the question my niece, Grace, always asks...What's your favorite color?"
I've always told Grace I didn't have a favorite color because I LOVE so many colors, I couldn't possibly choose just one.
The following is true in my family:
Blue has ALWAYS been my Mom's favorite color. She's always preferred to decorate with blue, has always had more blue clothing than any other color. She's never wavered a bit. In all of her 88 years!
I still know all of my brothers' favorite colors from when they were kids: Tom's favorite was yellow, Dan's favorite was red and Jerry's favorite was green.
I have NO idea what either of my sisters' favorite colors were. And, I have no idea what mine was when I was a kid.
I remember my Dad hated the color purple and to this day, both Marty and I do not like purple.
When Marty, Grace and Anna came to visit this past weekend, Grace asked me her usual question. And this time, I had an answer! I told her it was blue. How did I come to this conclusion?
Pinterest!! I have a board on Pinterest called "colors" because if this house ever sells, I look forward to decorating a new house in pleasant, inviting, calm colors that aren't brown, mustard, barn red, etc.
And what color do you think I've pinned most on Pinterest? Blue!
Then, I started looking at all of my jewelry I've made over the past several years.
And what color do you think I use the most? Blue!
Grace was truly happy to finally get a real answer from me! And Gracie's favorite color.....ORANGE!!
