Have you ever found yourself hating something one day, then out of the blue you think about it and realize you’ve somehow come to love that thing that you once hated? That pretty much describes my relationship with the color orange (it also kind of describes the plot of Green Eggs and Ham).
I’m not sure where my loathing of the color orange came from… was it my thinking that it wasn’t a good color on me because of my particular shade of blonde hair? was I suppressing a memory of an accident involving traffic cones? was it because it was my middle school bully’s favorite color? did it have something to do with the overexposure of pumpkin spice every Fall? Who knows! Your guess is as good as mine.
Long story short, I have my husband to thank for turning my opinion on its head when he suggested orange for the color of my new car stating “you’ll always be able to find it in a parking lot…” Boy, was he right! I’d have misplaced my vehicle a long time ago and would probably be living in a grocery store if it weren’t for my obnoxiously orange Subaru. From there, my relatively new found love of orange has stemmed.

Next week on the blog, I complain about the color red… Stay tuned!
