i like it all that way


(Natalie, these are the flowers I was talking about - the ones that came from my attempts last summer.)

Just a short bit - as one of you may know, I'm working on a new! blog!
Not just because of this header, though it's true I don't like it. I have been posting here for a long time and I just crave something fresh. I've changed a lot in the time I've been writing here, and I'm ready for a new start.
A problem I'm coming across is creating a new blog name. Many I have thought of are already taken, and it just kills me when I think of a name, find that it's taken, but the blog that is hogging the name has no posts! Or maybe one post, from years ago. Isn't there a limit on these things? Don't they (the blogging gods) seek and destroy blogs that have been neglected? I wish they did, because then those good blog names would have a chance to be fully realized.
Alas.
Any good ideas out there needing to be put to use?
I'm stuck on deciding where I want to go with the name, too. Do I stick to something sweet sounding, implying that this is a blog about baking? Well, it isn't, exactly. Or should I try something broader, more encompassing of my life? Oh, the many questions of blog life.
Good morning, and Happy Easter to you this weekend.

"Oh sweet baby gonna come my way..."

I can't WAIT to see you guys Saturday. Your flowers are beautiful, dearest. I love your kitchen. You have such a great, fresh sense of style. <3

It shows that you have a blog named "Cup & Cake" and I think that is absolutely FANTASTIC. It's super cute.

Also, I'm diggin' the flowers.

And what if your life IS sweet? Then the sweet-implying name could be about baking and your life.

I'm thinking of a new one, also. Choose life. Or maybe, this far but no further. Or maybe, there's always a siren singing you to shipwreck :)
