Color Palette of Reds…

When I was a kid, red was my very favorite color. I think someone once told me that if your favorite color was red, you were a naturally fiery person. And, I really wanted to be a fiery person. My favorite color, now, is pink. I wonder what that says about me.

Anyway, today I am loving this fiery, red color palette...it seems festive and alive to me. Like a really fun party...

And speaking of red, a few weeks ago, I was a bridesmaid in my dear friend, Anne's...
