PinkPink is a passionate color. When I created my blog, Freebies 4 Mom, I was passionate about helping people save money. I was struggling living paycheck to paycheck and wanted to turn around my family’s finances so we could start saving more and spending less. I was passionate about helping others while I helped myself. Pink was the color that I selected to help me express my passion to my blog readers.

Pink hasn’t always been my favorite color. When I was a little girl, my bedroom was painted my choice of ballerina pink. As I entered my teenage years, I started to actually dislike the color pink because I was having a difficult time embracing my feminine side. I realized that I was living in a world where things were slightly in favor of men, especially in my chosen career field of engineering.

As I gained work and life experience, I grew more comfortable with being a woman in a male-dominated field. Them I become a Mom and I really embraced my feminine side and became proud of being a woman who was smart enough to do anything I put my mind to. And I started wearing pink more…not the soft ballerina pink from my childhood, but a bold pink that made me smile. Since my blog is my online extension of myself, it should boldly wear pink too.

What’s your favorite color and what emotions and memories does it evoke for you?
