What's in a Name?

Happy Monday, all!

Aside from the everyday usuals of household/mama-life duties, attempting to walk more often, and the like, I'm prepping for a beloved little boy's FIRST birthday party at the end of the month.

I'm BEYOND excited!  Themed parties are so much fun, and I've decided to do a DINO theme, y'all.  It's gonna be ADORBSSSSS.  I plan to share photos, of course.

How goes your August, friend?  :]

Talk to me!  What do you think of this set?

  1. OH MY GRACIOUS I LOOOOOVE THIS SET OF NAMES. Kase and Tallaney especially. Those. Are. So. Great. :O *rushes to write them down* I literally may have to use Tallaney for my next novel. It's so fun! I've also ALWAYS adored the name Charity. That's one I've on multiple occasions considered naming a character. It'll probably actually happen one day! Haha.

    I can't believe your little boy is turning A YEAR OLD. :O SO PRECIOUS. Happy almost birthday to him! <333 You will definitely have to share pics of the decorations. I just know it's going to look amazing!

    1. AHH! YESSSSS, do it! I need to see a character named Tallaney & what she'll be like. And I agree, Kase is pretty cool. :D And Chasity is sweet!

      I KNOWWWW. I can't believe it! Thank you, dear girl! <3

  2. Ooh, I'm definitely going to have to save Tallaney and Kase for future characters! I LOVE those.

    A dino-themed party sound so much fun!

    1. Yes PLEASE!! Do it!! I so look forward to hearing of these characters *rubs hands together* xD

      Thanks! I'm so excited xDDD

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
