We've had a few relatively gray and gloomy days lately but each morning on my way to work I pass this flowerbed full of deep vibrant colors that stand out against their dull surroundings.
Aren't they lovely?
They inspired me to throw a bit of color around in other places as well. So, last night I pulled out the pillows and throw to accent my usually black and white bed set.
And then I decided I needed a mani-pedi so I added a touch of color to my toes and even my fingers which I never do (it chips and looks crappy much too quickly.)
And even pulled out the polka-dotty bra (that's right, I just blogged about my underwear). It's amazing how much a little color (even hidden) can brighten your day!
Now I'm going to cozy up in my newly brightened bed and read this book while I listen to the rain hitting my window and the wind blowing through the trees, safe in the knowledge that there will be more color adventures awaiting me tomorrow (and hopefully a bit of sunshine to boot!)
