Last night we hung out with our small group to kick off the first ever group fantasy football draft. It was wonderful. Food, stories, laughter, catching up...I am excited for even more time with them this Saturday for our college football kickoff party, with the main event- The Sooners!
Since last night's event took most of the evening, there was no time to create a mood board to represent this blog, ie: today's prompt for #blogtemberchallenge So, instead, a little description about this blog and some random pictures will have to do.
Passion, Pink and Pearls...well I don't remember how I came to rest on that name but I do remember scribbling many combinations way back when. It was approximately four years ago that I started thinking about starting a blog. I had begun reading a lot of blogs and for some reason found myself thinking I should write one too. I had just gotten engaged and I thought it might be fun to document the wedding process. I wrote my first post back in December of 2011. It was a total of five sentences.
Passion, Pink and Pearls describes me pretty well. I have a passion for Christ and this life He's given me. I want to honor Him every day with my words and actions. I want my life to bring Him glory. I want my passion for the Lord to be evident so to share His love. Pink, is my favorite color. It's been so for quite a long time. I remember back in high school, we would watch The Extreme Home Makeover, that's when I decided I was going to be an interior designer who wore pink. My dad bought me a purse shaped tool box for Christmas soon thereafter. I now have a pink hardhat to wear to my job sites, and it's awesome. I would venture to say that half of my wardrobe is pink. Basically, it's obvious I love the color pink, and specifically it's coral pink that is my favorite (hence the wedding colors). Finally, pearls. I'm a total pearls girl. On any given day I'm wearing some type of pearls. Pearl studs, bracelet, necklace...more than likely one of those items is on my every day. I love the delicacy and the classic look of pearls. I love the class of pearls. I also think of "pearls of wisdom" when I think of pearls. My intention was to share my own "pearls of wisdom" at the end of each blog post. This is mostly applicable on DIY posts and I honestly have not kept to this idea very well at all.
I also decided to name my "design company" (not an official company), Pearl Design. It is under this title that I create hand drawn pieces, design concept boards for people's homes, and various other things. I have really enjoyed my time with my pencils over the last year or so. I'm always up for a blogger discount if you're interested in one! And I'm now a designer at Dezignable creating concept boards for clients.
This blog most correctly identifies itself as a lifestyle blog. I share most about my personal life, my faith in the Lord, the lessons God has taught me, some DIYs, some helpful posts, and a lot of just randomness. Thanks for joining me for the ride!
Of my favorite posts, this one is the silliest, this one makes me smile, this one reminds me of God's faithfulness, this one was fun, this one was hard to write but I'm proud of myself for doing it, this one has a funny story, this one makes me smile, in this one Kevin and I dressed like Boy Meets World characters and that's just awesome, this one (and this one) has one of my all time favorite diys, and, this diy surprised me, and this one is the most pinned on pinterest.
