Four year old Laina leaned close to my ear and in her quiet girl voice whispered…

“mommmmmy?? I wish efferyfing was purple!!”

I hope the simple things always make her this happy.

ahhhhh that takes me back poppy at 1 used to say everything was purple! xxx

There’s just something happy about little girls and the color purple. :)

(Also? Secretly – I wish everything was yellow! :))

Mama Kat May 8, 2012 at 8:16 pm

I love yellow! In fact, when my husband and I were house hunting I always pointed out yellow houses because they looked ‘happy’…he’d get frustrated and be all “please just ignore the color and look at the inside! We can always paint the house!”

He lied…I still don’t have my happy yellow house!

Aw, I love it.

And purple is an awesome color.

I could totally be happy in a world where everything was purple. :) Those sweet, simple little moments are so precious. I often wish it was possible to keep them at that stage.

Aren’t they adorable? I’m so glad we have these online spaces that allow us to capture some of the special moments. :)

Awww so sweet when life is as simple as a favorite color.

Love purple. Not so sure about everything purple, though. But still it’s a pretty color!!! :)

Jennifer May 4, 2012 at 9:43 am

I love that there is one color she loves so much.

So sweet! Little girls are the best. :)

Hmmm it would take some time getting used to eating purple food, but I suppose if it tasted the same I would be fine with it.

What would happen to those people who tanned? Would they turn eggplant?

Our lives would all be better if we could take joy in something as simple as purple!

Mama Kat May 8, 2012 at 8:18 pm

I completely agree!! :)

I love when you illustrate. So much better this way. You must have a book of these by now, no? You could be a published comic book author!

Mama Kat May 8, 2012 at 8:19 pm

You’re so right Nicole…I don’t want to miss my calling as an artist!! And all this time my husband’s teased me about being a grown woman who still draws like a 7 year old!
