Colleen informed me that the Pantone color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid, which is in fact a fancy way to say purple. But definitely a radiant purple. Good old purple. It was my favorite color growing up and I have always had a soft spot in my heart for it. The interesting thing is I now have purple nowhere in my home. Like absolutely nothing. How did that happen? I do wear it quite frequently but I will definitely have to find a special spot in my home for a purple item to celebrate its special year.
I also added the picture at the bottom with the orchid boat in the snow because we are expecting snow in Charlotte today and I am scared it will be our only chance for the year. Fingers crossed for us!
