Turquoise is the color of my 2009.
Do you ever find that sometimes you find yourself really drifting towards a certain color?
I find myself thrifting for vintage finds saying oh, if that were only turquoise!
Or, seeing clothes that I love but wishing they were turquoise.
painting walls turquoise
getting married in Cozumel so that I could be surrounded in turquoise
which led to a turquoise colored wedding
i love turquoise.
Now, mind you, I do not call it turquoise.
I call it Mexican Ocean Blue.
Mexico is where my love affair with this color began, thus, I re-named the color for my own sake.
Art teachers are allowed to make up colors right?
I even had a friend send me a tweet the other day with a link to an article saying that studies are showing that turquoise will be THE color of 2010.
I am soooo ahead of the times :)
So, if turquoise was my 2009 color, I wonder what the color of my 2010 will be??
In honor of my lovely color, I found these pics on weheartit to share with all of you.
You know, to get you all pumped up for 2010...

in love <3
