You may notice that the blog has taken on a rather sunny appearance for today only. This is because Mary The Teach at Work of the Poet is passing out Mimosa awards based on Panton's signature color for the year described as follows:
“The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.”
Mary created a MIMOSA AWARD for bloggers who epitomize hope and reassurance every day in their blogs and gave it to some of her sun shiney blogger frieds. I got one. Little did she know that I consider the height of luxury an expansive Sunday brunch where the Mimosas flow followed by a safe ride home and a day in which to sleep off the effects of all that over indulgence.
Now to pass it along in the spirit in which it was given. First to my favorite storyteller who created "Only The Good Fridays" and who always faces the future with humor and wisdom: Shelly at This Eclectic Life, Linda at Are We There Yet for facing all the challenges of a single parent with humor, bravery, and the willingness to tackle something new from a traumatic move to photography, and Carol at A Letter To Me for her years of friendship, support, and her ability to care for her family with grace and serenity.
