New Look, New Name

If you are looking for Memories By Miranda, you are in the right spot. Memories By Miranda is now The Pebble Pond. I am so excited about the new name and the new look! What do you think?

I have been wanting to change the name for a long time but I never took the time to think of a new one. Well last week I told Brian and together we have been wracking our brains trying to come up with something. There were 2 reasons I wanted it changed. Number 1, it is not very original. There are others with the exact same name and even more very close to it. Number 2, I wanted something with meaning. Heart felt meaning.

After a week of dead ends, The Pebble Pond was born! It is original. Well as original as you can get with millions of blogs out there. Most has meaning!

For the last 15 years, whenever we do something as a family or have a special moment, Brian finds a rock or pebble to give to me as a keepsake. Carter does this too now. (I have quite the collection!) Digging deeper my wonderful grandpa used to do the same thing for my grandma.

My blog is a place where I share my life. Our memories as a family. A journal of sorts. I try (and I'm going to try even harder) to capture our life through pictures. My desire is that my children will know the love of God and my love for them on a daily basis and I use my blog as a way to record those memories.

Our memories are like pebbles. Pebbles that are carried with us just like the ones I am given. As we laugh. As we play. As we read. As we live. Everything we do will be a memory. Either a good one or a bad one. My hope is that the good memories will far out way the bad when my children look back on their lives. My blog is the pond where all those memories can be recorded. Every good memory (pebble) we toss in the pond will be special and important. Even though my kids will not remember everything that I do, they will know how I made them feel.

So that is the story behind the name, The Pebble Pond. I hope you will follow along with our journey. You can subscribe in the left hand column using Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin.

I'm excited to get some spring pictures soon and then I will be able to update the header. I have all kinds of ideas running through my head and it makes me giddy. :)
