Happy New Year: 2018 The Year of Purple

Happy New Year friends!  We are so excited to kick off 2018:  the year of purple!  Our beloved purple, or more specifically, ultra violet, has been named the 2018 color of the year by Pantone.  Pantone forecasts global color trends for many different industries, as well as branding and product development.  They are recognized as the leading source for color trends.  A great big thanks to Pantone for helping us spread the love!  Purple represents so many things to us:  imagination, innovation, and vision towards the future.  Check out the Pantone website announcing the color of the year and paying tribute to our much loved color:

We can all use some purple in our lives!  As we leave 2017 behind full of awesome memories:  personal and professional developments that included the creative spark that has launched Purple Ways, we are looking forward to an exciting year.  Let’s veer off the beaten path together to find more fun, food, drinks, and plenty of shenanigans.  But we also want to fill up this special site with the  many smart, talented, and creative women around us that have branched out on their own journeys and continue to inspire and awe us.  They are pursuing passions, opening businesses, sharing their skills and talents.  Here’s to all the women in our lives: photographers, foodies, bartenders, hair stylists and salon owners, artists, including jewelry makers, piercers, muralist, tattoo artists, and of course teachers and martial arts masters.  MaryAnne and Saranya are thrilled to celebrate and support these restless spirits.   Welcome to the year of purple!
