Frivolous Friday: A Passion for Purple!

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

In my internet travels, I stumbled on an article about Kristen Bell’s new children’s book
“The World Needs More Purple People”

The book is a hilarious and joyous book that offers a wonderful message teaching kids about embracing the things that bring us together as humans.

Their goal:    inspire a whole generation to paint the world purple!

The book asks us to be Kind, Curious and Really, Really, Ridiculously Silly — so I gave that a try….did I succeed?

The backstory:   if you’ve ever taken one little peek at my website, or if you are a part of the Sweet Life Family,

you KNOW how over-the-moon I am about purple, So of COURSE I had to buy that book!

And as soon as Mr. UPS brought my book, I had to sit down with some PURPLE  cookies and give it a read…..

The story reminds us to embrace the things that bring us together as humans and encourages one to be curious, be silly, be YOU and paint the world PURPLE.

Well, since I was trying to be ridiculously silly,  I decided to RUN with the purple thing by PAINTING my world Purple – first up EATING purple for an entire day.

(That was three PURPLES in the same sentence — woot!)  😛

After I challenged myself to eating fun colored food  I also discovered lots of people in social media also eat in a color theme – who knew eating colors was a thing?)

So I started by purple-ing up my morning whole grain Oatmeal with a recipe for a Blackberry Cream Cheese topping…

It was beautiful and SOOOOO yummy!

For lunch, I went ALL out and baked myself some PURPLE bread for my BLT sammie and had a side of PURPLE sweet potato chips.

(Except for the fact that my brain kept wanting that bread to taste sweet and berry flavored it was really good!)

And I will admit to smiling with every bite.  So please give colored bread a try and see if you smile more too!    😉

And for dinner – PURPLE pasta!  (You should have seen hubby’s eyes roll at that!)

Found the pasta and the chips on Amazon = Score for purple day!

BTW:  This is an amazing Pioneer Woman Recipe for Summer Stir Fry – and I highly recommend it – with or without the purple pasta.

Let me know if you want the recipe!

And a PURPLE berry pie rounded off the day…..

who knew purple could be so delicious!

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!

And do you know what else I’m blessed by?     Capturing amazing moments for you to treasure for a lifetime!
