New Blog!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Welcome to my new blog! As you can see I am pretty excited about this one! I have been wanting to change my blog name and design for a while now. When I first started my blog I did not really think about what my blog name should be. And since I am getting more serious about my photography I did not want my personal blog to have the same name as my photography because that can be confusing.

So I came up with Choosing to be Colorful. I try to be a very colorful, happy person by always trying to find the positive in a bad situation. This is not to say that my life is perfect but I believe that life is too short to be constantly unhappy. Find something that you love to do and that makes you happy. Look at the small things in life and recognize all the good that can be found.

I have spent that last two weeks designing my blog using Photoshop and Google. I have always been more of a do it yourself person so I was determined to make my own blog design. It probably took a lot longer than it should have, but I love the feeling that I have accomplished something that I am proud of. And it has taught me all of the capabilities within Photoshop that I have only begun to explore. I also created a new About Me page so check that out too!

10 Things that Make Me Happy
1. Pictures. I find that looking back at pictures will always lift my spirits. Remembering the moments inside the pictures and the emotions around them always makes me happy.

2. Hot Chocolate on my way to work. I am not a coffee drinker, but I have made my own drink that I have every morning. And I find that when I forget it my whole day feels thrown off.

3. Paisley Puppy. When you spend as much time with your dog as I do you come to understand each other really well. She knows when I need her to just lay next to me and she knows when I am feeling sad. It is quite a gift to be able to sense that in a human being.

4. Technology. Being able to talk on the phone, skype, text, Facebook chat and all the other forms of communication we have that keeps me connected to my family. And since they are so far away it is nice to be able to feel a little closer by the use of technology.

5. Being Outside. I don't know what it is about being outside but it always makes me feel better. And since it was 67 degrees on Sunday we definitely took advantage of it.

6. Food. The ability to put delicious food on our table every night is not something that everyone has the luxury of. We get to cook our meals exactly how we want so it is always good. No complaining here.

7. Cute Clothes. Being able to wake up every morning and find that perfect outfit. I am happy to be able to afford buying clothes that are new and trendy.

8. My Computer. Even though most days I want to throw it out the window. I am grateful to have a nice computer with all my special amenities that I picked out myself. It makes spending those countless hours on it more enjoyable.

9. Netflix. Anybody else love Netflix? I love being able to find just about any show and be able to watch hours of TV shows with out commercials. It is beautiful.

10. And Last But Not Least My Husband. This is probably pretty self explanatory, but I love being able to come home and know that someone else would be there. That even if we do not sit in the same room I know I am not alone. Even if he drives me crazy some days, I still know that I could not live without him.
