I will write more later about our wonderful anniversary...but just had to post a picture of the beautiful couch we just bought for our living room (along with two recliners). Joel and I are doing our part to stimulate the economy.
The couch is really sort of a plum color and as my daughter said, the color "fits you". My husband does like the color and we have purple as an accent color already. With all the wood in our apartment (exposed beams, wood-beam ceilings) and the recliners being a brown-tweed color, I think the plum will work and make things POP!
I like color!
