I have loved Pink Saturday at Beverly's for a long time - I've always wanted to jump in, but it seemed overwhelming - now I'm ready - ready to become pink. Thanks also to 'Simply Debbie' who gave me the encouragement to do it and the direction.
Pink isn't my favorite color (it's my second favorite or third or maybe I just like all colors - lol), but I love it none the less.
Everything looks better pink. It feels feminine. It feels safe. I can breathe better and relax deeply with pink.
And pink does make the world feel and 'look' better.
I'll tell you what makes you feel better as well as looking out of pink colored glasses at the world

Happy birthday to Art Linkletter - wikipedia
Linkletter had one of the longest marriages of any celebrity in America, at over 74 years. He married Lois Foerster on November 25, 1935, and they had five children: Arthur Jack (known as Jack Linkletter, a TV host), Dawn, Robert, Sharon, and Diane. He was also a good friend of Walt Disney.
Linkletter outlived three of his five children. His 20-year-old daughter, Diane Linkletter, died on October 4, 1969, by jumping out of her sixth-floor kitchen window (while a student at UCLA). Linkletter claimed that she committed suicide because she was on, or having a flashback from, an LSD trip, but toxicology tests done after the incident detected no signs of LSD use. Linkletter spoke out against drugs to prevent children from straying into a drug habit. His record, We Love You, Call Collect, recorded before her death, featured a discussion about permissiveness in modern society. It featured a rebuttal by Diane, called Dear Mom and Dad. The record won a 1970 Grammy Award for the "Best Spoken Word Recording".
His son Robert died in an automobile accident on September 12, 1980.
His son Arthur Jack Linkletter, (1937–2007), died from lymphoma.
I really really liked this man. Remember his show where he'd ask children the question - What did your parents tell you not to tell me? He's a fellow pinkie!
