Flipping through my latest issue of Family Circle, I came across this page and stared at it for a few thoughtful moments.
The colors here are exactly the colors that make me think of Easter and spring – and Kat, my best friend during college.
One beautiful spring day our senior year, I put together an outfit that I thought screamed spring and headed off to classes. My robin’s egg blue pencil skirt, pale pink top and cream sweater with little pink, lavender and blue flowers was cheery and girly and perfect for the season. Or so I thought.
Meeting up in the student union for a quick lunch, Kat took one look at me and shook her head. “You look like you were mauled by an Easter Parade. What are you doing?”
Needless to say, I never wore that particular wardrobe combination again.
But the colors still speak to me of springtime, of Easter baskets and dyed eggs, little chicks and pretty flowers.
