Hibiscus Pink

There are a few things in this world that I know are true:

1.    Patience is an absolute gift from God.  You know that deep breath that you find yourself taking right before yelling at someone-yep gift from God. Thank you, Jesus, for this slight minute of sanity. It has helped me from making several mistakes and yelling at those I love. Do you have people that you are more patient with than others? Yoga has helped immensely with my patience. It is amazing what deep breathing can do for your psyche.

2.    There are many things that enjoy being in a freezer. Ice cream, popsicles, veggies, fruit, ice…I have met a few people in the last few years (yes I am being very vague) that find the freezer has no limits, no standards, accepts everyone. Lunch meat and a freezer should never meet, date, or have kids. Leftover spaghetti sauce should not be friends with a freezer. Bacon, marinades, cooked leftover pasta, bread…you get my point, yes?

3.    Grey’s Anatomy is quite addicting. I have found myself with some extra time on my hands and just watched the most recent premiere of Grey’s. Now I have to know everything that happened starting with season 1. I love television, don’t you?

4.    The holidays are addicting. I am actually surprised that I still have such a love for holidays. I worked in retail for over 8 years, and one would think that my love for holidays would have dissipated by now. Even though fall is in the air all over the country, it is still in the 90’s here in Southern California. The past two days we have had rain, temperatures in the 60’s, and pumpkin spice lattes. It will heat up soon, but I can’t stop thinking about candy corn, scarves, boots, pumpkin-flavored anything, and dreaming about the new Christmas albums I want to buy. I am currently all about these two- Blake Shelton: Cheers, its Christmas and Katherine Jenkins: This is Christmas.

What do you know is true?

Hello World… My name is Ashley and I love the color pink. It has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember. There was a time in my life when I wished everything around me was pink including my car, my hair, and my horse.

Anyway, this blog is written my a woman (even though I am not a fan of that word, and still feel like a girl) for women. We face many trials each and every day and I think each day can correlate to a different shade of pink, if you will. Yes, it may seem silly but I love the color pink as I said.

I cannot give you an exact format for this blog because I haven’t defined it yet. It may include rants, raves, recipes, and/or real life happenings. I hope you enjoy what you read and welcome any feedback.

Thanks for reading!
