Color Personality?

Real Simple Quiz:
What’s Your Color Personality?
Take a peek in your closet or a stroll through your home, and you might see an abundance of one color. Red? Blue? Color experts say that there is a natural reason for this: People’s personalities and color choices go hand in hand (so gregarious types will be drawn to one hue, more contemplative sorts to another). Take a fun new quiz to see what the pros say about your temperament based on your color picks, then more on color: in your home decor, in your wardrobe, in your garden.
Leave a comment with your Color Personality and let us know if it's accurate...
Can anyone guess what mine was?

Colossians 1:3-7

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints— the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth.
Colossians 1:3-7

Ocean Star Gifts

A little over a week ago, I traveled to Orlando for a Surf Expo!  Chelsea and I worked for Christine with Ocean Star Gifts during the week, setting up the booth, taking orders, talking talking talking, praying, encouraging girls, and sharing Christine's vision for her business and ministry.  
(Isn't the booth adorable!!!)
We had a wonderful trip- full of way too many laughs, new friendships, encouraging ministry, yummy food and successful outlet shopping.

a room to dine

(how did I live our first year and a half of marriage without my Nikon friend?! I never realized how bad my old pictures were until they are next to the newer ones!!)

the life of our mariemont living room

Here is our clean blank living room on our first tour of the apartment:
It started to feel a little more like home as we slowly transported furniture and wedding gifts to the apartment.  Below shows the CRAZY MESS after we returned from our honeymoon and opened the gifts ;)  Definitely a fun night!
Our first Christmas in our apartment:
Above shows one of the many rearrangements I did to the living room.  Patrick is so patient...
Below is last year's Christmas complete with a train and snow village:
More room transitions to come... and some exciting updates which will explain my sentimental posts about our first apartment in Mariemont :)
