Many families have a story they love to tell every year around a holiday. Does your family have one? Are you the star of that story, or does another family member take center stage? Share your story if you want.One involved our Christmas tree being chucked into the yard with some spicy words being said and another involved a run-in with scalding apple cider. Both involved our family trip to the Christmas tree farm trying to capture that perfect family moment. Let's just say we now go to the tree lot at the hardware store and grab a tree.
Are you afraid to speak your own opinion?Um, no. But, I do find that I speak my opinion less and less these days. If it's not my direct business, I don't want to be involved. Nobody seems to listen to advice they ask you to give anyway, so I rarely choose to give any. I find that most people offering their opinion are giving a negative one, and we just don't need anymore negativity in the world than we already have. Conversations have just gotten to be so exhausting.
Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2016, and for the first time have chosen two shades ... rose quartz and serenity. Hmmm .... did you know that serenity was a color? You can read the thought behind their selection by visiting he Pantone website, but essentially it's blending the warmth of rose quartz with the tranquility of a very soft shade of blue. So what do you think? Are these colors I'd find in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in these shades to either place in the new year?
It is lovely, for sure. And the reasoning behind it is so extremely peaceful. However, I do not think I have anything these colors in my wardrobe, and I do not in my household decor, either. These aren't really my "signature colors" so I don't see myself adding them anywhere anytime soon.
