Day 25 Prompt: Red

When I was growing up I extremely disliked the color red, not sure if the fact I had red hair had anything to do with it or not. It wasn't until a few years back that I started to enjoy red and now I love it. I completely embrace red! How about you? Love it? Hate it? Don't feel anything about it?

I have always enjoyed big red barns though, I think it is because my great grandparents lived/owned/worked on their ranch with a big red barn and farmhouse. I loved having family gatherings out there.

Here are a couple of other things that I love that are red;

  4. Red for me is about passion, love, dreams of being together forever, the bonds created in passion. So, true to my romantic nature, that's the direction I took.
