Looking for me?

Still interested in keeping up with me and my life "after the aisle"?
Come visit me on my new blog, Heather Drive. I hope to see you all on the other side!

What's in a name?

First, a clarification: Road to the Aisle is not--and never was--in danger of going anywhere. I would never take it down or move the content somewhere else. The only thing up for debate right now is what I do with myself (and my blogging) moving forward.

I have decided for sure that I'm going to start a new blog and gradually move myself over there. But first? A name.

The name thing is killing me. I don't know why it's such a big deal, but I'm finding things wrong with every name I've come up with.

A couple of you suggested "After the Aisle"... that name actually did occur to me already, but when I think about it, I really don't want the title to revolve around the wedding in any way. The whole point of moving to a new blog is to start something new. I don't define myself by my wedding day, and I feel like "After the Aisle" implies that my life has only just begun because I walked down an aisle. Sure, I put a lot of work into my wedding, and the planning consumed much of my life for a year... but in the end, it really was just one day. A fantastic, fabulous day... but a day.

Yes, I'm probably reading too much into that. But there's my issue.

God help me when I have to pick baby names someday. I can't name a blog, how the hell am I going to name a human?

How about something regarding a new life?

Maybe; New life, New Love, New Family.

Just an idea :) It can go in every direction with vacations, babies, houses.. Hope this helps! :)

This comment actually has nothing to do with your post, but I have a question for you. The Astrobright Glisten paper that you used for your DIY pocket folder invitations, what was the weight of the paper that you ordered? And did you have to make a special request for the size you wanted from Anchor paper?

I know that's a really specific question, but I figured I'd quell my curiosity.

I like "The winding road", you never know what your life will hold, you never know what direction you will take, the future is very uncertain and there are going to be good times and bad. I think this describes life very well.
