Blue Monday 7th Blogoversary!

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

Today is a special day of celebrating Blue!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






Seven years ago on the first Monday of September, 2008, Blue Monday began! Before then, Pink Saturday was the only color meme existing. Since Blue is my favorite color, I thought, "why not start a Blue meme?"

Since then, every Monday, I've posted something Blue. I surprised myself! When I began, I never thought that I'd be able to keep it going for such a long time. Really, Blue is everywhere, just waiting to be spotted and appreciated.



It's a delight to find so much Blue wherever I look. Even my family's gotten involved. They keep their eyes open and often supply me with Blue things they discover. My daughter sent me these flowers to celebrate our seven years of Blue blogging. Mmm, they smell sooo good. Even the vase is Blue.






This Blue hydrangea is special to me because it reminds me of my father who grew them in our front yard in Washington, D.C. where I grew up.



Blue Monday would be nothing without YOU!

Blogland is filled with special people, and I've met a bunch that I count as my friends.

I'm presenting YOU with this award. If you'd like,  you may post it on your blog.





Some of you have been with me from the first Blue Monday found here.

Thank you for visiting, commenting, and playing with me.



Happy Blue Monday!

All the best, Pat

That's a lot of Blue Mondays! I've long enjoyed participating in Blue Monday because blue is a favorite color here at Hyacinths for the Soul. Can't claim that I've participated in all of your Blue Mondays, but I've joined a good many. Thanks for hosting each week. I trust Blue Monday will continue to delight us for years to come.
Happy Birthday, Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, I am so happy to say...BLUE MONDAY was a wonderful idea. It has brought 7 years of the color 'blue' into the limelight for many Blue Monday fans. I am one of your biggest fans and have really enjoyed your Blog party fun. I had a time trying to find my first Blue Monday post. It was fun to go back. Thank you for being the kind of host that always makes the effort to visit all of your participants. You rock!
Love,
Jeanne

Happy Anniversary, Sally! I remember that first Blue Monday, even though I didn't start participating until a little later. It really doesn't seem like it's been that long. But it's been fun, and of course that makes the time fly. Thanks so much for hosting this through the years.

Have a wonderful Blue Monday!
