about BLUE

Thursday, October 11, 2012

When Jake and I got home from California (still more CA posts coming), we knew a lot had been done on the house. Wood floors, tile, and the exterior paint. So on our drive home at 11 o clock at night we drove over to our house being built. Can I tell you how we both about pooped our pants when the head lights shined on the house at it was this bright blue?! We were expecting the house to be gray with a little hint of blue.....but after we slept on it, on my gosh we LOVE the blue! Yes its bold, and bright, and bold, and bold, but I feel its a very fitting color for Jake and I. Also it goes with all our Nautical Light fixtures. Plus, how fun is it to say....oh yea, we live in the blue house :) I think once winter is over, we will repaint it Navy, but for now we will enjoy the blue. I think we would always keep it blue, but we want neighbors by us someday, so the bright blue will have to go. Its funny looking at these pictures of the blue. The camera does not capture just how blue it is...
