L&L Gift Guide : Purple Reign

In case you missed it yesterday, the universe sent me a huge sign Pantone announced it’s color of the year.  And the color is Ultra Violet.  This NYT article pretty much sums it up.

“It’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute. Not, note, “what’s going on in our world today.” Which is kind of an interesting distinction. It suggests that Pantone is not just observing and predicting, it’s going proactive.

 For those who don’t know me personally, a brief history about my relationship with purple. I hated it. But since life is strange and ironic, I now have a purple heart literally tattooed on my wrist that delivers comfort on the daily.

And the biggest purple fan I know is probably getting a chuckle out of that up above. (at least I hope she is!)
