#OurProject52 – Blue

This week’s #OurProject52 is all about blue. It’s probably really weird of me, but the very first thing I think of when I hear the word blue is the song “Shpadoinkle Day” from Cannibal: the Musical. The sky is blue and all the leaves are green. The sun’s as warm as a baked potato. I Read More …
