I chose rouge as Week 15's theme because my birthday is tomorrow... and quite simply... that deep shade of red is one of my absolute favorite colors. It evokes both passion and warmth. It transports me to moments that speak of ruby red lips and beautiful gowns. I think of all the delight that cherries, apples and strawberries bestow upon us or perhaps that cool crisp feeling that red & white together bring to me. The comfort of a deep red barn or the tint on someone's cheeks as they give one of those amazing, authentic, full-belly laughs. 

I can't think of a better present than to be showered with your images featuring rouge.

 What does it conjour up within you?

Susan & I invite each of you to participate in the project and show us your unique vision, your voice, your echo. Remember, to share your link in the comments here so if I get a chance to do a round-up I can add your site to the post, besides I don’t want to miss any of your stories.

NOTE: I'm still taking a bit of a social media break as I focus on getting my new site finished, once and for all. . There, I will have larger images that you can breathe in a bit, a much better navigational system as well as a plethora of information. I am beginning to get really excited for it and hope you'll follow me there! Roadblocks keep taking away the time I allotted for it - my birthday wish is to complete it soon without interruption! I think I'll feel as if a weight has been lifted once it is complete.

You can still join in on the 2 collaborative projects I will be hosting there -- information is on this post, leave a comment to sign up - and I'll contact you as soon as the time is right!

Warmly, Chrysti
