Remembering my favorite things makes me blue.

Ever since I was little and was dressed in blue more often than not I thought that the color blue belonged to me. Then came pre-adolescence when I wanted to paint my bedroom blue that my dad informed me blue was for boys and I endured a pink room for a long time. Today I can say with assurance that blue, with its many variations, is one of my favorite things.

There is no blue without yellow and without orange.
Vincent Van Gogh

You know, I love all your favourite blues but most of all, that wee bitty sweet lass down there at the bottom.

I enjoy blue, but green has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember. I do love Van Gough, and all of your other blue offerings. I have a soft spot in my heart for little girls as I have a granddaughter I am quite fond of. This little one looks cute in her blue dress.
