finally, after months of threatening, the long awaited blog-of-Emily has been made! A couple weeks ago I had a great idea for a blog post so I thought “yes, now I will make that blog” but then I forgot what it was. Maybe it’s the getting used to having 2-kids baby-brain thing. And THEN I needed a name for my blog! It had to be good. It had to be clever, memorable, meaningful (to me at least), not too boring . . . and it came to me: a book title from my somewhat obscure favorite author, Myrtle Reed. She wrote in the early 1900s. So many good one to choose from: Lavender and Old Lace, A Weaver of Dreams, Flower of the Dusk, Love Letters of a Musician, Threads of Gray and Gold. But this one has a nod to my middle name and also doesn’t sound too much like a movie (I didn’t want people to think of Arsenic and Old Lace instead). Fun fact: Myrtle Reed wrote cookbooks with the pen name Olive Green.
So here we are. Is this a mommy blog? a Christian woman blog? a food blog? a craft/toddler play blog? Guess we shall wait and see!
