The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. ~ The Notebook

Why the name "Something Bleu''?

I wanted to stand out differently. Part of my nationality is French, so I wanted to incorporate some of my heritage into my company's name.
