Pink Houses

Pink Houses

These pink houses don’t say I Love You on them like my Valentine’s Day Houses, but they have conjured up special memories for me.

When I was growing up I lived next door to a pink house from the time I was one year’s old up until I was 14.  My best friend lived there since she was one year’s old too.  Our houses were built exactly alike, only different colors and set on our lots in different angles.  We were the same age and experienced a lot of life together.  We both took dancing lessons and wore pink tutus and pink ballet slippers, went to fairs and amusement parks, shopped, swam, climbed trees, walked to the bus stop, and experienced boys and high school together in a way that no other friend I have had did.

Coincidentally, both our families moved at exactly the same time into larger homes and we ended up living just a few short blocks away from each other.  I remember how her house was bought by a family that had it moved to a different site in town and we took a ride one day to see it.  The new owners had not changed the color, it was still pink.

This friend of mine that lived in the pink house is gone now, so while these pink houses  have nothing to do with her, they have made me remember her in a new way.  I can say I Love You and I remember you with these pink houses.  My friend’s birthday was February 18th and I go on her Facebook wall on her birthday and write something every year now.

Here are Little Pink Houses for you and me.

    • Ha! The Pincus’s live in the house with pink shutters. People whose name go with something fascinates me, like why is my chiropractor’s name Backstrom?

  1. One of the things I like about growing up in Southern CA, was how there different colored houses. Pink was one of my favorite colors. My grandparents home was pink at one time, then yellow. I loved both colors on their beach cottage style home. I miss that house from time to time. New people in it now and it is a dull beige color. Totally boring. :)
    I like the house from Brisbane in your post. It is very quaint.
