Yellow Makes Me Happy

When I moved into my current abode 10 years ago, I painted every wall in every room yellow. Very pale yellow, and all kinds of different shades. Yellow makes me happy. I feel like I am living in eternal spring, my favorite season. I love yellow.

William talks about "lellow" frequently, and seemingly for no reason other than he loves it. He would wear his yellow robot shirt every day for the rest of his life if that were possible. His Hot Wheels are the greatest toy ever invented, but the yellow ones trump all. He is a compulsive dandelion picker, and seems to consider them the greatest gift he can give me. He won't let me check to see if he likes butter.

I'm with you - yellow makes me happy. The only rooms in my house I haven't repaint are those that were yellow.

I love yellow. We have quite a bit of it on our tall walls and it's the sunshine we rarely get out here on the north coast!

:) I like yellow flowers, too, but my favorite color is blue. :)

I have read that people who say their favorite color is yellow tend to be described by others as friendly, happy, and kind; so good choice!

oh yes yellow is happy!
I believe I heard once that it means joy and happiness & also symbolizes wisdom.
I see that with your blog.

It's a yellow day!

Earlier today, I read a post by another HighCalling.org blogger and editor (L.L. Barkat at Seedlings in Stone) that yellow buoyed her spirits.

Makes me feel like I need to grab a paintbrush and get to work. :)

I love yellow too. I am currently working a on a quilt in which I used a lot of yellow. one of my guild members looked at it as I was making it and said, it just looks so happy. So, I named it Happy in Cali!
