When I announced to my Marines that I was getting married, the first thing my Sergeant asked me was “What’re your colors, ma’am?” I looked at her like she was speaking another language. Colors? Are colors important? She explained to me that the color palette was one of the first things I had to consider. I don’t remember how I arrived at hot pink and orange, but I haven’t regretted it. The florist thought I was a little mad, but when my mother visited her again, three years later, she told my mom that the combo had become very popular.
I’m one of those people who refill disposable, sport-top water bottles and continue to drink out of the same container for months. I do this despite the warnings I’ve received that the spout eventually becomes so unsanitary that I might as well be licking the bathroom floor. When I found this dishwasher-safe bottle at Kroger, I snapped it up. I can wash it, it has a removeable, freezer-gel core, and it matches my wedding colors!
