Color Me Mine

Posted in: Life

On Sunday, I took Mike to see Mimi for an important meeting.

Mimi is a very, VERY talented color consultant. She has over 2,000 individual color swatches (organized in rows of plastic sleeves) which she uses to design custom color palettes for her clients. This ain’t your spring / summer / fall / winter hoo-ha. In this consultation, you walk away with several dozen of your personal BEST colors — selected according to your own skin tones, your eyes, your hair — and Mimi chooses each color specifically for you.

Mimi is one of my best friends, and she no longer offers her consultation services to anyone except family and close family connections. Luckily, I’m still “in” because I’m her granddaughter. And I should add that her real name is Carolyn, but, as her purse (which Mike found in Charleston) will tell you…

Here’s what looks the very best on Mike:

You can bet Mike’s pink-loving wifey is going to run right out and find him a tie or a polo shirt in his pink.

But colors aren’t all that’s happening in Lexington. On Monday, Baby Cooper took his mama and me to lunch where Cousin Kate is working for the summer.

Doesn’t Kate look cute in her uniform?



Goose 🙂

And the day ended with Best Friend Jenny and a Donato’s pepperoni & banana pepper pizza. The whole thing.

I’m never eating again,

    Really enjoyed your blog Hannah. I remember you telling me about Mimi years ago at The Bar at World Cafe! I only hope it will make Mike better looking? Keep up the good work!
