The Book of Me Written By You~Prompt 24~Favorite Color

Image
I am participating in Julie Goucher's activity:
"The Book of Me, Written by You." This weeks prompt ~ Favorite Color

Do you have a favorite color? And if so why?
Do you like vibrant colors or darker colors?
Do you associate anyone with a particular color? If so why?
Does your favorite color reflect your personality?

``````````````````````````````````````````
I have always had a favorite color! It has always been blue.

I have never anaylzed why I like the color blue, I just know it calms and puts me at peace when I see it. Maybe because it reminds me of water? I love water! It can be an ocean, stream, lake, pond or pool. It doesn't matter, I just love the water. Or maybe it reminds me of the sky?  The never ending eternal sky…I am not sure, I just know I have always been partial to blue.

The Book of Me Written By You~Prompt 23~Memory Board

Image
I am participating in Julie Goucher's activity:
"The Book of Me, Written by You."

This week's prompt is – Memory Board - How do you see the point of a memory board - Why keep one? - Do you keep one? Or will you? This could be a cork board in your office, kitchen or regular space? If you do what do you keep on it? and why?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have never kept a memory board and do not anticipate having one. The closest thing I can think of to have something like this is when my children were young and I posted their school or craft items on the refrigerator. I now have these things packed away, those that I want to keep forever.
I do save some papers of my grandchildren's coloring and pictures also. I have a special box just for their items. Cards they have made us, maybe a special craft or two. When each of my grandchildren were in pre-school (the second one is just finishing up there) they made Valentines cards to send to grandma and grandpa. They were such a wonderful surpri…
