Old Fashioned Names

:



Both my husband and I have old fashioned names for our middle name. Growing up, I was quite insecure about my middle name. I wondered what my friends would think if I told them.

I soon realized that I needn't worry as more and more people told me that they thought it was a pretty name. I began to appreciate my middle name; especially now since I have developed a love for old fashioned living.
