What's in a name?

I've had this blogger account for three years and had done nothing with it until I was recently inspired by my friend's blog over at 3 Ring Binder. One of the reasons I'd done nothing with it was because I just absolutely could not think of a name for my blog. How's that for not even getting out of the starting gate? While the name I've chosen for now is neither as clever or appropriate as many others out there, I tried to think of a name related to something my entire family likes. With three children (boy 10.5, girl 7, boy 3.5), DH (the computer chip-designing, X-Box-playing guy), and me (musician and book addict), it was hard to find a common denominator. But then the background on my computer's desktop reminded me of something we all love: rocks. Skipping them, collecting them, photographing them, painting them, reading about them--we do it all. On our recent vacation we found an amazing variety of shapes and colors. Those we found in Acadia National Park we just photographed, but several other beaches outside the Park contributed to our growing collection.

While I don't think I'll be posting every day for a while yet, I hope to do better than once every three years. Later, friends.

I love it!!! What a great name and congratulations on getting past the hard part.

I had no idea you loved rocks too (great photos).

As always, I look forward to what you have to say.
