In the Pink

My Morning Cup takes on a bit of a new look today! While it's not a huge change, I think it's nice and it is little more readable, especially with the text on white.

I love my old header, so I asked my husband to modify its color to match this new background. He did, and then he asked me, "Um... do you think that might be a quite a bit of pink??"


I answered him with another question. "Can you have TOO much pink??!"

You see, dear readers, I love pink. Indeed, what is not to love about pink?
  • Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Cotton Candy
  • Pink Lemonade
  • A "Peace Rose" -- my all-time favorite variety of rose, yellow down in the center, blooming out into a lovely pink at its pedals' edges.
  • The sky behind Mount Hood as the sun sets on a chilly fall day in Portland.
  • My bridesmaids' gowns on my wedding day, and dare I admit it?? I made our groomsmen wear pink ties and cummerbunds (what WAS I thinking?!)
I've enjoyed wearing pink since I was a girl. In high school, way back in the late 70s, early 80s, when bib overalls in every color were popular, I had pink ones. Beyond cute! And to this day I have to watch myself when looking for sweaters or other pieces of clothing because I will prefer the pink one every time, and as pretty as any one garment may be, no one needs a closet full of one color!

To me the color pink is everything sweet, feminine, soft, lovely. It's the essence of a girly-girl, and in a house full of boys, I think I can indulge myself with it just a bit, if only on my blog!

And so, it might need a tweak here and there before arriving at the final version, but I'm pleased with My Morning Cup's new look thus far. And perhaps I'll enjoy looking at it enough that I'll actually start posting a tad more again, as time permits. We'll see.....

God bless you, dear readers!

Love it! Good for you and yay for hubbies who are computer geniuses! Happy Belated birthday HS Dad!

I'm more of a neutral, greens, yellows, browns, and blue sort a gal... but if you like pink, then go pink! :)

Hope you and yours are doing well. God bless you!

Thanks PekletMom! You know, I liked it, but after logging in a few times I realized hubby was right--too much pink! So I'm backing away from that design and reconsidering. I know HSDad will have some ideas for me! :)

You guys take care too... I think of you often. BTW, your Christmas card came back undeliverable! I'll have to get with you in email and be sure I have a correct address for the Peklets.

God bless you all!
