Blues People

2 new dresses! And they're both blue. I don't know what it is but here lately I've really been attracted to that color. While there isn't much blue in my own wardrobe, I really like working with it when sewing. Makes me feel at ease.

(And yes, the title for the latter was influenced by the movie of the similar name. And yes, the latter is made from sweater material, and I live in hot south Louisiana where it gets up to about 98 degrees everyday and stuff like this won't be necessary til maybe November, but I'm in the mood for making winter stuff these days. Plus it's not hot everywhere at the present moment...and I ship worldwide *wink*.)
On a more personal note, today marks 5 yrs. to the day that my guy and I became an item. Now, we had to look of a July '03 calendar to determine this, since we both had a vague idea rather than definite one. Sure enough, we formally met on Sunday, July 27, 2003. On Tuesday, July 29, 2003 we hung out together. There was never a point where we formally said that we wanted to be in a relationship. It was just worked really well from the start, so we consider July 29th our "anniversary." Pretty odd, but that's how it went. It's really just been so natural and real over the years that it's felt timeless. Seriously. We just mesh well together, as they say.
Ok. enough of the mushiness.

Here's a song I'm dedicating to him for the day:

mwaaah ha ha ha ha! *rubbing hands together with evil smile*

(Well just the "I put a spell on you part." Thankfully the rest of the song doesn't apply, lol! Love, love love it though!) Maaaan! How electrifying as the part, "I love you anyhow..and I don't care if you don't want me! I'm yours right now!" Dang. That's pretty serious. Nina's the best.

Blue dress was on the front page last night...woohoo! We could all use a little cool right now, I think blue has an easy cool vibe about it!

Congrats on the anniversary and best wishes for many many more. Ours is August 2nd; 17 years-you're right had it not been for the wedding brouhaha, it is all just history it feels like we've just always been.

yeah, that song definitely has a certain spooky-ish feel to it. ha ha!

color can translate funky-ish at times online. but the top one is a light, baby blue.

@ tameka--so, so true. we're always saying how it feels like we always were.

and it's always cool to be on the front page at etsy. thanks for filling me in...i was fast asleep.

thanks everyone! :-D
