On house hunting TV shows the beleaguered real estate agent receives the home buyers’ list of “must haves” right at the beginning of the show. The agent then knows what to look for, even if the expectations are unattainable.
Today is the 1 year blogiversary of The Monday Box. I published the first Monday Box post on May 10, 2012, though I didn’t get my blogging act together and start posting weekly until October 2012. I am painfully aware of how much more I want to learn about baking, blogging, and food photography, but I am so excited about how much I have learned this year.
Choosing the right name is important.
Twenty-five years ago, when I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I deliberated over baby names. We had no official notification of whether we were having a boy or a girl. I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but I knew I was having a girl because I had met her in my dreams. I had dreams where I was holding a black haired, blue eyed baby girl. My husband, the scientist, didn’t pay any attention to my “evidence”. He insisted that we pick a boy name and a girl name. Actually, he was rather convinced (I have no idea why) that we were having a boy, so convinced that he let me pick a girl name without any arguing. I let him pick the boy name without too much debate, because I knew we wouldn’t be using it.
