Yellow Happiness

Yay for spring!  Yay for more yellow!

From Shauna Hollobaugh:

"The rain and HAIL (in Arizona!) on my sister Rachel's wedding day put a damper on the backyard reception plans, but the yellow totally brightened up the situation.  I love what she wrote on Facebook after the wedding, 'I'm in love with this guy Jacob.  And even though it took me a while to realize it, God knew how much I loved rain so he gave it to me on the most special day of my entire life.'
These are the flower girls/nieces that traded in their flowers for umbrellas.  Rachel's colors were all shades of yellow."

And then later that same day, I got an email from the gorgeous bride, Rachel Martindale:

"My favorite color has always been yellow. So it obviously had to be my wedding color :). Thank goodness because no other color would've brightened up my stormy weather (in Arizona, springtime!) quite like YELLOW did.  So grateful for yellow, happy love!!"

From Kathryn McLetchie in New York:

"Yellow has always been a favorite color of mine, but lately I am noticing it more and more thanks to your regular posts on the color!  Imagine my surprise to receive the April issue of Real Simple magazine the other day in the mail...My immediate thought when I saw that gorgeous cover was of you!  It made me smile and well...happy :-)"

From Lisette Wolter-McKinley:

"I cannot help but think of you when I see yellow now.

The Skagit Valley is well known for their tulip festival, but right before the tulips come fields and fields of daffodils.  In my book, there is nothing happier than a bright yellow flower."


From Danielle in Georgia:

"I love using my yellow bowl!  It makes a happy dinner table with yellow bits on our little cloth too! :)"

From Mary Mott:

"I know you are dairy free, but I couldn't help thinking of you and your posts about yellow when I went to scoop some ice cream for my husband and I last night.  I had to snap a picture and send it to you!"

Thanks to ALL of you for noticing a bit of cheer and sending it along.  So fun!!



P.S.  I've been spring cleaning and organizing over here like crazy.   Are you guys doing anything special to ring in the new season?
