Ma Vie en Rose

This week, I celebrate the girliest of colors: Pink!

When I was a little girl, I always wore pink...
Now, I'm partial to basic black.

I may not be that little girl anymore, 
but I'm still attracted to "La Vie en rose"...

I loved the pink umbrellas and towels at the Royal Hawaiian
Waikiki Beach, Honolulu (Oahu, Hawaii - Honeymoon 2005)

The sailor in me can never resist a pink sky:
"Pink sky at night, sailors' delight!"

Pink sky in Paris

Pink skies from our deck in Okauchee Lake

Pink sea & sky in Chatham, Cape Cod
My favorite pink skies are from the deck of Sail la Vie

I also love pink flowers:
from the subtlest blush
to the most vibrant fuchsias

Don't forget to stop and smell the pink roses!

Perhaps I am still that little girl who loved pink:
I couldn't resist these pink ballet slippers!

 And I still love Pretty in Pink 
(after all, I did grow up in the 80's)!
