Color. 4S

"where the rest of the world sees things in black & white, you see a million colors."

one:  paint, paint, and paint some more!
When Zach and I moved into our first apartment together I was 18, and we lived on a street called Jaeger Avenue, it was an ADORABLE apartment, and we only lived there for about 2 weeks. When we first moved in, with a roommate, we all decided to paint every room in the house. Oh. My. Gosh. It was incredibly difficult and took us the full two weeks that we lived there just to paint it, then we moved out. The living room was a charcoal gray, then the downstairs bedroom was RED. The upstairs living area had a ceiling that curved into two of the parallel walls, we painted that WHOLE "slab" and one of the adjacent walls navy, and the left over wall was painted with chalkboard paint. There was a little attic-like room that was tiny and pink, and our bedroom was a mauve purple. The bathroom was teal. What an adventure! I would have loved to live in that apartment, and I have decided that never will I ever become a home painter.

two: hair.
I am not so sure if this is so much a story, as it is just a somewhat useless fact, but-- I have had just about every color in my hair including but not limited to: brown (naturally), black, blonde, red, blue, green and purple. 

three: color cube!
I own enough clothing to cover a country. I also LOVE organizing, and am borderline obsessed with cube storage units. I use a 3x3 for my t-shirts, and organize them by color, I also do this with the things in my closet. :)

four: a nursery fit for a queen...
We lived in a house for a few months at one point and it was an old house in need of a lot of renovation. We couldn't afford to do much, but we redid Madalyn's room, and I made sure it was perfect! She had a bright purple carpet, a lemon pastel yellow on her walls and ceiling, and the closet and trim was a beautiful pink. I have a dream to paint a mural for her someday, but until then, her currently robin's egg blue colors shall do!
