One of my favorite things I’ve done at my house is paint my front door pink! It is just so me! Let me tell you a little story about how long this has been coming. Back in grade school I went to a very strict private school with uniforms. We had to wear exactly what was on the approved list and I was always getting detention or suspended for wearing the wrong colored socks or rolling up my kilt too short! I’ve never been a conformist, and never will be.
In 8th grade all I wanted in the world was to dye my hair pink like Gwen Stefani. When I finally got to high school I pierced my belly button and my nose, wore stilettos with ripped up jeans and finally dyed a pink steak in my hair! It turned out that people with black hair probably aren’t meant to have pink hair… I couldn’t keep up with all the bleaching and re-dying. But I never got tired of my obsession with pink! It just makes me so happy!
My Pink Door and New Love Sign
I have a new addition that I hope will spread a message of love and joy to everyone who walks by. If the pink door isn’t enough to boost your spirits, I now have LOVE written on the window above it. Through this blog and all my social media, my hope is that my photos of Lucy and all our pink-ness make someone smile. This is just one more piece of that effort.
There are so many other fabulous pink doors around the world that I’m inspired by. I think it’s fair to say that people who live in houses with pink doors are pretty cool! I love this one in London that has googly eyes on it! I also did a round up of dogs in front of pink doors because cool pink door people also love dogs!
Thank you to American Sign Letters for providing this sign to me! I turned out absolutely perfectly!
