I want a yellow door....

So ever since we bought our house, Jake and I have talked about painting our front door red.  A red door is welcoming and warm.  Our house is light blue with white trim, how lovely would a red door look? I even scouted out a house down the road, who recently painted their door red.  I gently knocked on their red door, admiring the color and the beautiful wreath they had hanging, to see if they would share the paint color with me.  Unfortunately, they weren't home.  Fortunately, this was a good thing, I felt a little more comfortable taking several pictures of this family's house.  I politely took pictures, then ran back to my car and acted like I was simply turning around in their driveway.  Then recently after reading a blog I follow....Stories from A to Z, a light turned on in the brain, actually it turned from a red light to a yellow light and something clicked.  Yellow is the new red, and yellow is my favorite color.  It was my wedding color.  How trend setting would we be with a beautiful bright canary yellow door on our cute three bedroom rambler?  I even considered naming my blog...the yellow door.  A married couple, with a one year old girl, making their house a home.  So I googled yellow door, finds out I wasn't the first one to think of this brilliant idea.  But I am still painting my door yellow.

I've always wanted a red door (my fave color) but I don't think red would go too well with the current color of my house... but I am loving the idea of a yellow door for yours!! And then I think you would HAVE to change the blog name to have "Meyer Lemon" in it!
