Black is not only My Favorite Color.
It is also what I would consider My Signature Color!
This little fun fact about me becomes evident when you take a quick glace through my wardrobe.
Here's a little peak at How This Came About.
The Development of My
After I had baby number one, I began to carry around a spare t-shirt in my diaper bag. I found myself always needing to change tops. She loved to spit up right after I would pull the burp rag off of my shoulder. Once baby number two was born. I switched to wearing black t-shirts a majority of the time. I found that the dark color made it easy to hide stains. As my family and children grew. I found that I would continually offer my pants for them to wipe off their dirty hands on. After some time I transitioned to wearing black pants.
It was My Everyday Life that helped form My Signature Color and helped to make Black My Favorite Color. Black holds so much meaning to me. It also has so many memories attacked to it. I'll always Love to wear Black and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
Over The Years
As my children have grown and become more independent. I no longer have to offer my pants for them to wipe their hands on. Which means that I can now transition back to wearing color. I have tried and I do wear color. I however find that I always go back to my Tried and True, Black.
Here are a few of My Everyday Looks
For me it is all about Comfort and Diversity.
I love being able to have an outfit that I can wear flats with and run errands in during the day. Then simply throw on a pair of heels and be instantly ready for a dinner downtown.

I Learned something New about us today!
When I realized what we were doing I couldn't help but laugh. Since I Love sharing our Funny Stories with you guys. I thought it was a Great one to share.
Always Learning, Always Growing
I consider myself quite Lucky. That I am always in situation where is am Continually Learning and Growing. The great thing is that I is in all parts of my life. Whether it is something new about myself, my children, or with my business. I find that I am Always Learning and Growing. Which I see as a True Blessing.
The other day one of my children and I were talking about this particular Carmel that we purchased from a Small Family Business at one of Our Local Farmers Markets. They made mention to Loving the Carmel and how they would really like to purchase more, but the couldn't remember the name and did were unable to find any Carmel in our Local Grocery Store. Knowing the exact Carmel they were talking about and remembering that we wrote Blog Articles of Our Farmers Market Adventures. I did the obvious next move.
I went onto Our Website and Searched!
I did in fact search my own website for information that I forgot. The funny thing is this is not the first time that I have done this. While in San Antonio I remembered trying a different brand of chalk paint, but couldn't remember the name. So I searched through our Blog Archives to find it.
What I Learned
In this one instance I learned two very interesting and rather important things.
This first is that We Need To Be More Detailed Oriented.
After going on our site and with a simple key word. I found the Article in Question very easily. However we made no mention to the Brand Name. Which is an incredibly silly and irritating mistake to make.
The second valuable lesson that I learned is that there are times where we are running low on time or when our schedule seems to be incredible full. When moments like such happen we tend to just push the Blogs out pretty fast. So that they will go out on time and we can keep our promised Schedule. However as I was rereading our past Farmers Market Blog. I discovered quite a few Grammar and Spelling Errors within the article. I'll admit that grammar and spelling are not one of my strong suits and I do try to proof read. Although when there is a time crunch a proof read quickly turns into a rushed skim read. This is how mistakes go unnoticed.
From this one conversation and a simple relook at an old article. I learned that we need to make sure our Blog Articles are as Detail Oriented as possible and that we need to make sure to take a proper amount of time to go back and proof read each article before publishing.
This is just one of many funny instances in which I Learn something that helps me to Grow.

We always Recommend
that you wash clothing in Cold Water
with either a Low Tumble Dry or a Hang Dry.
Wash Using Cold Water
Washing your laundry in cold water for some may be a new concept. I know that I am not the only one who remembers their parents and grandparents always washing clothes in hot water. However now a days hot water is solely reserved for sheets and towels in my house.
Here are My Top 4 Reasons
Why I Chose to Wash My Fashions in Cold Water.
#1 Saves Money
I am all about saving money on energy expenses if it means I can purchase that New Trendy Fashion ThavinMarcob just got in. Therefore this is My Number One Reason to change over and start washing your laundry in cold water. It will help bring down your energy expenses. Heating the water is the most expensive part of doing the wash.
So Save some of your Hard Earned Cash and Switch to Cold.
#2 Saves The Shape of Your Clothes
Hot water has the habit of Stretching Out your favorite dress. Now Let's be honest here we have all experienced this at one time or another. It goes in the washer as your Favorite New Outfit and comes out as something your grandmother would wear.
Save the Shape of your Dress, just use Cold Water.
When you wash your clothes in Warm or Hot Water. You're taking the chance that the dye of the clothes will bleed just a bit. Meaning Fading may not be noticeable at first, but as you continue to wash and wear your clothes. It will eventually end up looking like something you found in the trash bin. Washing in cold will help prolong the life of your clothes.
Keep your Clothes Looking Brand New Longer
by Simply Washing in Cold Water.
We already know that I'm all about Saving Money. This Fun Fact about me was covered in the Energy Saving Portion of the article Reason #1.
The Second Reason mentioned that Cold Water Helps prevent Fading and the Third explains how Cold Water Keeps the Shape of your Clothes.
Now Reason #4 is Thrifty, but how/why you ask.
It's Simple. If your clothes Last Longer you get to Spend Less Money. If you're Saving Money on Energy then you get to purchase a Better Quality of Clothing or My Personal Favorite Support a Small Business. That you may not have been able to before switching to Cold Water. Therefore in Turn Being Thrifty.
Join the Wonderful Cold Water Circle of Life
and give Cold Water Washing a Try.
*Remember Cold Water Washing Does Not Sanitize clothes like Hot Water Washing Does.
I hope you have an Amazing Wednesday!

We love trying new venders and adventuring with different styles and cuts of fashion. One of these instances shine perfectly when we think of a Jumpsuit that we ordered as a test trail from a vender. We thought the Jumpsuit was absolutely beautiful and was the perfect Fashion choice to either Dress Up or Down.
However we were receiving a lot of complaints about how customers just could not fit into the Jumpsuit because of the cut. While we did notice that the pants of the Jumpsuit slimed down as it got to ones ankles. We didn't visually notice anything absurdly wrong with the cut that would prevent people from fitting into it. So we decided the best way to figure out what the problem was, how to solve it, and/or make sure we do not make the same mistake ordering for our collection again was to try on the Jumpsuit ourselves.
Both myself and another team member tried on the Jumpsuit and successfully got it on with no issue. We were both stumped as to why others could not manage to get it on. So we gave it another go, except this time we decided to explain out loud exactly what we were doing to get into the Jumpsuit. The entire instance was extremely comical. We were at our Physical Location in La Conner WA, the day was slow. So we were merely in the dressing room. Shouting to the other what and how we were dressing ourselves.
While this entire spectacle was extremely hilarious and a great way to fill a day with laughter. We were still unable to find a noticeable problem and concluded that everyone is just different when it come to their preferred favorite cuts of fashion and those who tried on the Jumpsuit just were not comfortable with the cut/style of the Jumpsuit.
Through this One Instance I learned that it is okay to Not Get It. The adventure is in the Try and Doing. Which we had plenty of fun doing.
Dating has its perks and downsides that tend to, gradually, increase or decrease in importance depending on the stability and overall dynamics of the relationship. To make your relationship work, the only logical thing to do is choose the personality type that matches your sensibility, sensitivity and your partner expectations in the long run. Phew, only! As if choosing the right partner comes down to the matters of “only”, right?
Still, with the charts and personality tests we’ve got popping around every other second, it’s easier than ever to:
a) Test yourself and establish your own behavioral patterns
b) Test the other person for compatibility
c) Go through the chart alone and establish the type of personality you’d most likely fit in or would like to fit in
With that knowledge under your belt, choosing the partner that’s best for you should be a piece of cake. Since you’ve already landed on this page that means you’ve already got an idea of what your bae’s personality type is and you are looking to make the most of it. Cute!
If you are dating an INTP, here are a few tips and personality insights you’ll definitely find beneficial for sprucing up your romantic relationship and helping it grow.
