Does your home have a name?
I think "Green Gables" "Anne of Green Gables" was the first home I remember having a name. Then there was "Orchard House" in Little Women and "Tara" in "Gone with the Wind." What a quaint idea, I thought, naming one's house. Four walls suddenly become a part of a family history, a building come alive, containing the love and memories of those who dwelled within.
Our home doesn't have a name, but I've always wanted to christen it. Somehow our plain white vinyl siding and fenced in grass haven't inspired anything yet. I imagine that if one day we get our little home in the country that the stretching trees and rolling land will lend itself to creativity much easier.
I still hope to ponder a little and find a name for this place, even though we are already six years here.
