What’s in a name?

July 22, 2010

Welcome to my blog, Flowers and Foundations!

It probably sounds like a strange name for a blog but all will become clear….hopefully….

I have wanted to start a blog for quite a while but firstly, I wasn’t sure where to start and secondly, I couldn’t decide what to blog about!

Then it dawned on me…..

I am currently planning a wedding while simultaneously embarking on a self build project for our first “owned” home so what better to blog about I thought! So when a few fellow bloggers suggested the same, I decided to just go for it!

I spent the past few days thinking about a name for this blog. I also asked some friends for ideas and a few online buddies suggested “foundations” as we are laying the foundation stones for the rest of our lives with our marriage and new home – I loved that idea! I also wanted to link the name to the wedding so that’s when I coined “Flowers and Foundations”.

Both events are such big chapters in our lives that I feel it is important to record the details for future giggles when we look back at this time in our lives! In doing this, I hope that I can also help others who are in the same situation or aren’t mad enough to do both at the same time and just embarking on one adventure at a time!

Enjoy and looking forward to some feedback!
