My True Love

Do you think it is weird to be in love with a color? I go through phases where I enjoy wearing certain dyes or I am drawn to specific shades in home decor. Ryan teases me that these tints become my “signature color.” These affairs, however, only last a season. Usually I am sick of them after a few intense months and am soon ready for a new color-fling. Two years ago it was chocolate brown, last year spearmint green. This summer, however, I have found the real deal. I know it is not a one-season-stand. It goes so much deeper than that. This color makes all the other color-infatuations look like “puppy love.”

I love love love cobalt blue. I would even dare say that it is my all-time, best-yet, most-favorite color in the world…ever. This blue reminds me of a stormy sky, my grandma’s dishes, Vincent’s haphazard paintings, the echoing ocean, Alaskan Opals, a satisfactory nap…all of these things. It is a passionate color. It is one that doesn’t apologize for itself and intimate another color. It is brilliant and proud, deep and perfect. I love it and if I could eat it I would.

Sorry chocolate brown and spearmint green. Our time together was sweet and I will always remember it. But cobalt blue and I…we are soul-mates. But I’ll keep ya’lls number on hand in case it things don't work out between me and ol' blue.

Absolute commitment to cobalt blue would mean getting rid of the other colors' numbers altogether. You might have to rethink that one if you want cobalt blue to feel totally and completely committed too. I'm just sayin' . . .

There are three girls in my family. Two of them have had a long history of a love affair with cobalt blue. I love the beauty they have created with this unique color. There isn't a better one to have a love affair with. GO BLUE
