Heather May 28th, 2013 Does this “Color of the Day” series only go on for this month? I’m loving it! Arielle May 28th, 2013 I’ve loved reading these, thanks for all of the near history. I don’t know if anyone has said this already, my apologies if so, just wanted to let you know that the text has been consistently hard to read due to the small size. I thought maybe it was just mobile reading but I tried on my computer too and it’s the same (using an iPhone 5 and 27″ iMac). Thanks again for the cool history!
