I have no idea whether it's true or not, but I remember reading somewhere that Leonardo da Vinci always wore pink because he believed it made his skin look younger and dewy-ier. That Leonardo... he was a smart guy. I'm thinking he probably knew a thing or two about colour.
So...today marks another birthday. I'm another year older. Also a little chilly, a little hungry, hankering for chocolate, almost nearly but not quite yet done the Christmas shopping and so thankful and grateful for all the wonderful people in my life (both virtual and otherwise). My life is full and good. I have a wonderful husband who makes me laugh every single day, a velveteen doggie who warms my soul, I have love and too many blessings to count.
And I've got more pink clothing in my wardrobe than ever before!!
First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes
This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain
Suddenly everything changed
They're spreadin' blankets on the beach
Yours is the first face that I saw
Think i was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go
So I thought I'd let you know
YEAH THESE things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realise that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home
Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange
You said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said,
This is the first day of my life,
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy.
So if you wanna be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time it's different
I mean, I really think you like me...
