I apparently have a thing for pink, as my past several choices for flowers have been pink! It is true, I do! I love pink! It is my favorite color, since black and white are not considered to be colors. That said, it is likely that you will see a lot of pink in this blog. Prepare yourself, especially those out there in cyber-land, who hate pink. But, seriously, who could hate pink. It is so pretty. Everything looks beautiful in pink. Have you not heard – Pretty in Pink?
I also have a difficult time periodically (alright, often) trying to make decisions between things (generally girl things i.e., clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories, etc.). It could be anything really. It never fails whatever it is, it always comes down to two. Doesn’t matter what it is, never fails, the magic number is two, hence we have two quotes today as I merely couldn’t decide. I would have also added a red flower but, made the decision on this flower. I also love red. Red is perfect for accessories i.e., flowers, handbags, shoes, cameras, phones, important items you want to pop that pink doesn’t really capture, just saying.
