what's in a name?

Why, hello.  Welcome to the beginnings of my new blog.  After a few identity crises, it finally has a name.

Since when did choosing a name for a blog become so difficult?  Every good idea I had was already taken.  I really wanted to name it Suds in the Bucket.  Taken.  Other ideas were Wide Open Spaces, and Shiny Happy People.  All taken.  I changed the url a few times, from racheldangerpowers to Homegrown on Love to A Hint of Detail, to Terminezcequevousavezcommence (don't ask), to mine and my husband's first names, which in the end I decided were all boring and forgetable. 

So, when I finally thought of "Family Ever After," and it wasn't taken, and it had a matching gmail account available, (I know, I'm crazy), I snatched it up. Yes... yes, its super cheesy.  It will pop up on your screen and you'll popbably snicker at the silly name.  I do every time.

(Apparently I spend way too much time thinking of nonsense while I'm nursing my baby.  I should probably start reading more books.  But that takes two hands).

So what's this blog about?
Basically, I've been losing steam with our private blog, and I needed a fresh start. I could have made our private blog go public, but then I'd have to go back and edit out any details about our family that I don't want the whole world to read about.  Yeah right.  I'll still update the private one, with stuff about the kids, husband's job, etc. I want this one to stay pretty non-specific when it comes to all those details.  So to answer the question- this is my Finish What You Start project (a previous blog), extended to include pictures of us, projects, ideas, photography, ramblings, whatev.  I promise its the last time I re-vamp things.

And moving on...
This is what I did today: froze 50 pounds of meat (and grateful we are), took the kids to the park, and declared a new blog. Boy do I feel accomplished.
