Names are so important, don’t you think? But think about it – one of the most important things about each of us is chosen by someone else. Thankfully I like my name but there are many folks who don’t and have to find creative ways to get around the name that they were given at birth.
I have been thinking about names today in another context. Many times beach houses have names. The one we are staying in this week is named My Sunshine. I thought it was a pretty neat coincidence since I recently read Sean Dietrich’s book “You Are My Sunshine”. Chris and I went driving the other day and I jotted down a ton of beach house names as we passed miles and miles of houses with catchy titles. Here is a sampling. Let’s start with my favorite:
Keep it Shrimple
Coast is Clear
Sea and Believe
License to Chill
Never Wanted Nothing More
My Hoppy Place (with frogs)
All is Whale
Aren’t they fun? I can imagine the decor in many of them and know that it would be fun to see how they matched up with what I have imagined. Chris and I long ago decided on a name for our imaginary beach house — C’s to Sea.
Hope you have a fabulous day today and are able to enjoy the sunshine and crisp fall air. Don’t forget to leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for Operation KeepSafe. You can read more about it here.
