What a wonderful man that Mr. Porter and you are so fortunate to have each other. Yellow is such a cheery color and the color of hope and positiveness. Happy Anniversary to you young kids and may your lives continue to be blessed with love, family, special moments and many yellow flowers to come. xo xo

What a nice way to start a post, a quote from Vincent van Gogh.
He was born 20 kilometers from my home..in Zundert....we take our bikes and visit his birthvillage...
How nice to take a look at yellow this was.

Hi Lisa!! First let me say your incredibly kind comment had me smiling from ear to ear...and made my day, no make that..week! Thank you sooooo much!!!!! Best comment all week (and there were so many nice ones but you really set the tone)
Now if I may oblige (and not becuase I feel I have to...only because its so well deserved) This post made me smile from ear to ear too! The pictures all do yellow so much justice, and they are so incrediby uplifting and the presentation of how you presented each picture was so wonderful...then when I saw those gorgeous flowers your hubby gave and the beautiful setting in which it was given...it was the icing on the cake for a truly beautiful and inspirational post!!
Great job...have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Lisa, I'm so glad you left a comment today so that I could remember to visit you! I haven't spent as much time in front of a computer lately, but this cheerful yellow post was absolutely worth the visit! I posted some happy daffodils on my blog a week or two ago, but they were store bought. Love that yours came from your own garden! Happy anniversary!!!

Xo,
Linsey

P.S. Talking about my food passions seems so unrelated to my usual blogging, but there seem to be a lot of moms wanting to know more. So...I think there will be a little more to come!

What a beautiful post. The flowers your husband gave are so beautiful and congratualtions! I love yellow especially this time of year, have loads of daffodils just coming up and always like to have some kind of yellow flower around in my house, it just adds so much perk to the a space.

So romantic! Congratulations on your anniversary.

JMW said...

Just the other day, my 3-year-old son and I were discussing colors and their meanings. He said, "Yellow means happy!" Your post demonstrates that sentimate rather well. :)
