What made you want to start a blog?
I started a blog back in college and absolutely loved it. I loved expressing myself through writing and documenting my life through that medium. I told random stories, did a few product reviews, and everything in between. I went on a mission for my church and so my blog became a place where my family would post my weekly emails, but I came home I just didn't feel like I had anything worth blogging about. In 2012, I started a podcast and website with my friends and I wrote a lot over there for quite a few years (and still do!). But now I feel drawn back to blogging again and am excited to start back up!
How did you come up with the names Graham and Pippa?
Graham is a family name on my father's side and is a name I've always loved. It was the first name I suggested to my husband for our son and he said yes right away. Easy!
With Pippa, Jared and I couldn't decide on any name at all; every name I loved, he hated and visa versa. We'd try to talk about names but always got nowhere so gave up for a few months. About a month before the baby was born, he suggested Pippa and I loved it! I'd seen the name Pippa before (I mean, who doesn't know the famous Pippa Middleton who upstaged the bride at the royal wedding?), but somehow I kept forgetting it when coming up with my shortlist. It's such a cute name and perfect for our little girl.
