Pink Is The Color

A Red Pine Mountain LogoThanks to everyone who is joining me on the Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge.  I'll be posting the giveaway of the two Flip video cameras on Friday and I hope everyone will enter.  Thanks again to Purina for their generosity.

I have some thoughts to share today so I'll just jump in.

Do you think of yourself as a color? I do. No, I’m not talking about the colors that perhaps suit a person best. I’ve never been a slave to fashion. I wear what I like, and what I like is pink.

And what about the movie Legally Blonde? Do you remember it? The first time I watched Elle Woods, I knew I had found my long lost twin. It wasn’t just the pink pom poms on the pencils nor was it her scented stationery (scented stationary does always makes things better) nor was it Bruiser’s pink outfits. It was her entire attitude, her upbeat view on life, so quick to defend others, so quick to find the best in every situation. A pink person persona.

Yes, I’m one of those “pink” people. Ask Mountain Man. He’ll tell you it’s true. Whether it’s pink towels or linens or dishware, my entire world is filled with pink. “Mountain Man, can we paint the house pink?” I’m always asking. “No, no pink houses,” he says.

Hi Cindy, I'm actually getting ready to take a break after I do the Flip Video Camera giveaway. Need some time away from the computer. I also adore orange. I think that's why I go overboard with pumpkins every year and fall, with all it's different orange hues, is definitely my favorite season. Orange is a fabulous color and I do have lots of orange in my wardrobe. And, not being careful as to my fashion choices, I do combine orange and pink :-)and I would adore your garden. Optimistic and bright. I can't think of anything better. Thanks as always for visiting me and perhaps, just perhaps, one day, we'll be able to meet and go for a snowshoeing adventure in our woods.

Mountain Woman, you've been so prolific with your blog posts here lately, I'm falling behind reading. Keep it up! I always enjoy your insight. I'm an orange person. I probably have more orange in my wardrobe than anyone has a right to, and does anyone really look good in orange? Don't care - I love, love, love it. Bright, enthusiastic, and sort of calm-down-for-goodness-sake. And in a combination that might make many people cringe, most of my gardens are a mix of pinks and oranges. One day, I'll visit your mountain, you'll visit my lake, and we'll sit around discussing the virtues of pink and orange amongst the beauty of it all. Enjoy your day.

Jean, thank you! Mountain Man is a blue kind of person so the entire house was definitely blue themed. Thanks so much for your kind words.
