Be Pink. Stay Pink. Be Pink.

Pink has been my favorite color since I was born...probably even before then. It might have something to do with the fact that pink is the unofficial family color. I do think for myself, but it is a requirement to love pink. I would have to say that I never really appreciated the saying that my family loved to quote.

be pink
stay pink
be pink

It was in the 8th grade when I finally began to understand what it actually meant. It was that same year that GooGoo (my grandfather died). He was pretty much the happiest man alive. He always had a smile and was able to make even the most stern person smile. When he passed away the whole family and community took a hit. Before he died, the last thing he ever said to me was to be pink. It hit me right then. Being pink was about being happy, living life to the fullest and sharing whatever you have with the world. Needless to say, I have been pink ever since that moment. I made the earrings above today just for fun. I love to wear pink because it always reminds me of my family. Just thought I would share the story behind my love of the color pink...not many people get it.
