Mom Knew I Loved Pink

I'm not sure exactly when the passion for pink started. We can pinpoint it to around the year I asked for a pink princess telephone. I think I was a junior in high school. One of my dancer friend's had one and I LOVED it.

I still have my phone which I have dropped and broken too many times. I've also purchased other broken pink princess phones for parts. This could become a problem.

The other influence that may have led to my passion for all things pink was ballet class. It is difficult to not see pink or wear pink when dancing. See exhibit A above.

When I was young I loved pink carnations. I have since grown up and so have my tastes. Pink ROSES will bring a smile to my face now!

I can often be seen wearing pink.

(note: I was camping in this photo ...
did not get to do hair or makeup that day!)
My Mom knew I loved pink. She tolerated my pink phase in school. Pink shoes, pants, purse, phone, bookbags, pencils, you name it.

And in honor of Mother's Day, I'd like to say THANKS. She loved me anyway! After all, I guess it could have been worse. I could have loved GREEN.

For more bloggers who have a PASSION for pink, visit Beverly .... she hosts PINK SATURDAY every week! And if you have a minute... hop on over to Olivia's Romantic Cottage. She has vintage and pink things on her blog. What's not to love?

Pink? Completely normal! Very girly girly!

In contrast, I have to tolerate horse-loving K. She wears horse paraphernalia most days of the week. Very hard to locate too. But she loves it.

I wonder what little Bebe will favour?

Pink is wonderful! As a mother you do have to go with the flow! I have a friend who wanted NO PINK for their baby girl. SOO she now OWNS pink! The new baby sister on the way can have NO PINK. And apparently she doesn't like other people to have pink either! ;) She is 3! You can never pick what they will like!
Happy Pink Saturday! Have wonderful and sunny Mother's Day!
Hugs, Lisa

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mother's Day, Jillian.

Your mother must have been a very wise lady to nurture your passions.

I loved pink princess phones, too.
