As I've been gathering my Valentine stuff to get crafting, I realize how much I love red. I'm always drawn to red things, and I like wearing red. Our last home was a log cabin with a few interior walls of the family room painted red, contrasting with the dark logs that made up the rest of space. It felt cozy. In my kitchen, my standing mixer is red, looking all cheerful and ready to get creative. I have always loved red shoes, but as I've gotten older I've been less sure of wearing them. They seem so conspicuous while I've felt more and more faded. Nevertheless, I've got a pair of deep red pumps that I break out for special occasions. I'll have to wear them for Valentine's Day!
