Pink Thoughts

I am joining Christina, the queen of great ideas, for Pink Thoughts. Every Thursday in October, in honor of all the woman who have fought the battle with breast cancer, we will be posting something pink. Care to join us?

Pink is such a delicious color.

It can be innocent, like the ribbon running through the lace of a christening dress.

Or as sweet as cotton candy.

Pink can be bold and blustery, like neon lights burning through the night.

Or exciting, like a pink-scrawled address or a brilliant umbrella.

Pink can be hopeful, like a girl with Bonnie Bell on her lips.

Pink can be unexpected.

Or just right.

It can remind you of a little girl.

Or a sophisticated lady.

Pink can be the color of courage.

The color of a ribbon.

The color of survival and of loss.

Happy Pink Thursday, my friends.


So many wonderful photographers lent their images for this Pink Thursday. Click on the picture to go directly to the photostream of the wonderful photographer of each image.

I love the one of the parapluis from above! Love that you are honoring those who have fought the brave battle. Let's hope we are not far away from the cure (maybe these new Nobel winners)!
Lovely post as always!

I love this post, and I love that you had the "courage" shot. My family hasn't been touched (yet) by breast cancer, but as women we are all in this together. I love that you support our "sisters" in this way. The photos and words were perfect.

The pink fridge, pink umbrellas and of course, pink cotton candy--all such awesome pictures! I love that pink is the color of surviving women. It's so feminine, and yet so strong.
God Bless you today Relyn.
