Colour Me Happy is Three Years Old!

When Elizabeth and Bill were looking at homes in their neighbourhood, the Real Estate Agent told them that Halloween was fun here because everyone gets right into it. It’s the most fun Halloween I’ve ever had running around  with William and Markus and a small but very important ladybug, Isabella (daughter of Elizabeth’s friend Crystal).

This is my sister’s front door!

This is William, “Buddy, the T-rex dinosaur” practicing his Trick or Treat.

Markus (in the middle) was a lion.

After the first few houses, it was hard to keep up with William. Gathering candy must be the most fun there is for little angels at halloween!!

It was three years ago today that I started writing this blog! This was the first post I wrote, and here is the second one (when William was 1 1/2 years old).

Thank you to all of you for reading this blog, I love your emails, comments and feedback! It’s what keeps me writing!

  8. Congrats! I started reading your blog right after it was mentioned on – about a year after you started. Then I went back and read every single prior post and got addicted to checking ever day.

    Congratulations and big hugs

  11. Happy Birthday to Colour Me Happy! Congrats to you on your hard work and commitment to your writing and your fans. Here’s to more CMH blog birthdays!! xo Nancy

  12. Happy Blog Birthday Maria! Thank you for all you do for us. I have been reading your blog for most of the three years and look forward to your posts.

  13. Thanks so much for your blog, it’s often the highlight of my online time. With so much bad news out there, I can always count on you to be positive and have great content. I’ve learned so much from you, and send best wishes for your continued success!

  14. Love, love, love, you and little William. He is so adorable. Meant to say that after seeing your Las Vegas pictures. I enjoyed your first and second blog posts. I loved them just as I love you today. You’ve even inspired me to start a blog. One day! In the meantime, continued to success and I look forward to more CMH. 🙂

  15. Thanks for allowing me to comment. Of course, happy birthday! I found your website when I moved into a small apartment from a very large house. It was such an adjustment, especially sharing it with someone who simply lived in it. No color or style coordinating of any kind. Your advice was all I needed to transform this little place. It now has BM Cumin spice walls, lots of white woodwork, lots of white framing and accents, white and brown furniture. Parisian yellow linen and pillows and a hint of candy apple red accents. Simple and clean. Mostly, I want to say, your blog is as welcoming as recess and chorus is during a full day at school. Hope we stay connected. Would love to have you in Chicago for a workshop. I’d definitely sign up for your class!

  16. Congratulations on three fabulous and colorful years, Maria! I enjoy your blog and am inspired by your writing, your thoughts and your work! Keep on growing and I’ll be watching and and enjoying seeing your continued success!
