Pink

Pink is Eloise's favorite color.  Pink is such a beautiful and girly color that reminds me of delicate rose petals, baby girl blankets, and sweet smelling perfume.  Soft ballet shoes.  A sweet blush of a girl in love.

And so it's most appropriate that Pink is the color for Breast Cancer Awareness.  Because women are tender and beautiful and lovely.

But, Pink isn't always soft.  It's can be quite loud in fact.  Punchy, vibrant, and strong.  Bold and powerful. Spunky and full of life.

And that it's even more appropriate that Pink is the color for Breast Cancer Awareness.  Because women are strong and fierce and invincible.

I think of the strength and power required in childbirth.  Contracting, laboring, pushing.  And then a life long service of child raising, devotion, and sacrifice.  We all know that women can do anything.  Including defeat breast cancer.


Here is Eloise in her Halloween costume.  She's a spunky pink butterfly.  Let Halloween week begin!
