My photo
Matt and I were together for 10 wonderful years - met in 1998, married in 2002, until his untimely death on November 15, 2008. We have two beautiful, healthy children - Jacob (born 5/04) and Sydney (born 5/07)... the most precious gifts he could have ever given me.

Ideas?

What would be a creative name for my new blog? I'm stumped!

Post your ideas in a comment, and whoever has the title I end up using (if I still can't come up with one on my own) will be added as a reader. Ready, GO! =)

Renewed Life...

i love the title of jai pausch's new book "dream new dreams". she lost her husband to pancreatic cancer and had three small children. i just like how the title makes me even realize that sometimes my life doesn't go as planned and that obstacles make me have to redefine my life...dream new dreams is something each of us can relate to despite what challenges we have or haven't faced. i am so glad you are blogging again, i have often prayed for you and your sweet children. hope all is well!

Reinventing Andrea

Michelle said...

So happy to see you back. I followed your blog for a long time after my brother's death. I am glad to see you in such a better place. I think your new blog should reflect your new start, but still sound positive. AndreaNow, AndreaLooksForward, or my absolute favorite - AndreaLaughing

You have helped me so much to be the kind of friend my young widowed girlfriend needs! I suggest Andrea Remembers....The Next Chapter.

Great idea! I'll throw out some that come to mind as possibilities: "Andrea Matters" (that way Matt is still in there too in a small way), "Right Where I'm Supposed to Be", "Right Where I Belong", "Rowing Forward", "Because I Can". Hoping these help at least get your ideas flowing too!

if it's private, you can call it anything you darn well please! Random page opening in the dictionary (9th word on the left) + the third word down on the 14th page of the book you currently keep meaning to get to but haven't yet.

I am a long time reader, but rarely (if ever) commented. I'm so glad that you are returning to blogging, as your honesty about your emotions really helped me recognize my own while dealing with the sudden loss of my father.

I do like the other suggestions people have made, but I'm going to suggest "Andrea Imagines". I think it provides a bit of a nod to this blog, but also reflects the progress you have made. You are at a new point in your life and are imagining the possibilities for you and your children.

Regardless of whether or not my suggestion is picked, or if I am able to read your new blog (you have to do what's best for you and your kids) I wish you only the best.

I'm horrible at coming up with names for blogs, hence why mine is so simple (ha!)...but how about "Andrea's Journey Continues....some sadness but more happiness". Regardless if you choose mine or not, I hope your blogging continues to be therapeutic for you and lots of happiness fills your families days. :)

Andrea: Upward and Onward in a round about way.

I don't think my comment went through before so..
How about the name Original Intent?

~Chelsea~ said...

I'm at the exact same spot with my blog - wanting to 'reinvent' myself. Andrea Reinvented?
But, wow - some good suggestions here! I just hope to read on with the new blog . . . but keep you in my heart no matter what! You know you and the kids have a place to stay if you ever head to the west coast of BC!

Andrea continues...

i saw a comment about continued, but that is past tense. you are thriving, surving, and carrying on, it should be continues...

Dora said...

I thought of this after I commented earlier, but haven't had a chance to get back to comment again until now. I'm thinking you could also go with "Andrea's Fresh View" or "A Fresh View".

It's what you titled the post just before this one and I think it sums up perfectly where you are right now and what you're looking to do with the blog.

Best of luck picking a new name!

"We Row On but Always Remember"

I really truly will miss reading your blogging as I came to adore your family, often stopping by to see how you were doing... I miss that but am happy to see you will be able to blog theraputically for you.

I thought of another: Andrea Begins Again.
