This color is so stinking cheery! How can anyone be unhappy wearing such a bright color. You are all familiar with my recent obsession with this color because I keep bringing it up (here and here). While looking up the what the color represents I was surprised to find so many negative connotations to the color: yellowbellied, don't eat yellow snow, yellow fever, a yellow flag indicates quarantine and it also serves as a color of caution. I'm not scared or even cautious of this color... I LOVE IT!
My birthday is one of the exciting things that happened while I was away. My boyfriend and his kids gave me a sundress for the trip to Mexico as well as the fun yellow lovelies below. The yellow beads on the yellow necklace are faceted just a little so when the light hits them it gives off a nice sparkle. And I can't tell you how excited I am about the yellow purse. It is the perfect size for travel. I can comfortably wear it across my body, it is roomy enough to fit my passport, a water bottle and my camera, but it isn't so big that it's overwhelming.
|Yay for birthday presents!|

"Big Yellow Taxi" by Joni Mitchell
"Yellow Submarine" by the Beatles
