Our Lemon Lime Life Lesson Sofa

About three years ago, I was spending the afternoon in the city with one of my good friends. Maybe it was a bad hair day or the after effects of some wrong side of the bed syndrome, but whatever it was and regardless, it cast a silly grey cloud of insecurity over my head. Dripping with woe is me raindrops, Eeyore-sized galore. 

For a brief moment, I forgot what made me "me." 
I forgot my favorite color is green.
Forgot that I can still wear those vintage striped jeans from 7th grade, because they are now back in style after I first wore them when they weren't in style. And the lilac skinny cords.  
Or that I read "The Catcher in the Rye" when I was 11 because my {then} crush, Mel Gibson was obsessed with it in "Conspiracy Theory." 

 I had let a butterfly topple my house of sticks. 


All this to say, 
we have a new couch. 
And it's bright green. 

My favorite color. 

It reminds me of those silly afternoons we all have. 
When we feel so small and get so lost in the shadows. 

It should also mask the inevitable applesauce, highlighter pen, and pee accidents of the Bean quite well. 

It's just that bright. 

P.S. What's your favorite quality/characteristic/talent/fact/thing about yourself?

I love that I can have compassion and relate to people's situations very well. I have a huge heart and am not afraid to show it. :) Thanks for the reminder, we could all use it once in awhile.

The couch is fabulous! I am reminded after reading this post that I love that I believe every little creature/person/object is deserving of love. When I was younger, and ok I admit a little now, I believed that my stuffed animals came to life when I was asleep. I cherished them and loved them.

You wrote so beautifully! I love that you have a green couch:-) I truly TRULY care about people. It seems weird to write it out and be proud of it, but I am.

First of all, I'm jealous you can wear your 7th grade pants. Secondly, I'm jealous of your green couch. ;)

These are regularly described as 2 din car DVD, or double din DVD players and this designation references the height of the component.
Its screen is also a little bit larger than the HTC One's (they're about equally sharp), it
has a micro - SD slot for expandable memory,
and it'll be available on Verizon -- the HTC One will not. Odin is thought to be preparing to roll into the market with the new Android 4.

The Chromebook obviously still requires these
updates but they are managed in a very different way.
Though fascination with this laptop has not died,

Properly, it has every little thing to try and do with
on the web storage.
