A blog of my own...

When I was 11 or 12, I wrote a list of names that I hoped to give to my future children. Since I figured that the most children I would ever have would be 4, I came up with 4 boy and 4 girl first and middle names. I was prepared. I kept that list for many years, enjoying the sounds of the name combinations I had created. I am now a happy wife and mother of 4 children. I have exactly 2 boys and 2 girls, but hubs and I never once concidered my preteen list when deciding what we would call them. So as I was trying to come up with some sort of witty, poignant, or touching blog title, and having little success, it occured to me...I already had a perfectly good, unused name list that had been lying dormant and dusty for many years. It was time to put it to good use. The name at the top of the list was Vanessa Christine. Welcome to my blog, folks.

Love it, Michelle! I think you have a wonderful catchy style of writing, which is explained by the way you have always enjoyed the sounds of name combo's. I look forward to more!
