Something Blue

...on a gray, cloudy day. This is our bedroom in the new house, with our new bed that I am wildly in love with. I painted the room right after we got the keys, before we moved in, and I also love the color. It's a bit darker in person than the photo shows, probably because I took this today, when it is gray and rainy and the flash had to burn out extra bright, and it feels like relaxing in a sea of blue, or perhaps that shade of summer sky in the deep part of a particularly clear afternoon.

Here's a picture from Benjamin's birthday party, as he opens presents still wearing his Indiana Jones hat.

And here is Benjamin's cake that we made him. He very decidedly picked out pink icing. And I cannot lie: I love that he did. We are a family very attached to color, I think.
