Some of you may know that The Husband is from that small island across the ocean that is the United Kingdom. What you may not know is that in the UK many homes/properties have names. Sometimes they don't even have street numbers, just a house name and the city.
Last time we were visiting the UK we were in the middle of the months-long saga of buying our property in Washington State. As we drove around, we noticed all of the signs indicating the names of properties/houses. Names like "The Oak Tree" and "The Rose Cottage" and "Stag's Leap." The more we noticed the names, the more sure we became that our property needed a name.
I thought it was a great idea - a name, a logo, a brand... So many options. The Husband thought it was a great idea, too - bringing a little bit of "his culture" with us.
Then came the tough part - what to name it? We wanted a name that would convey a happy, pleasant, and, well, dog-friendly tone. Something that made people smile and not think that the owners of the property were too stuffy, or too crazy.
We tossed around a number of names, and finally landed on one we both liked: Wagmore Farm.
So off we go. Right now I'm debating whether to make posts about Wagmore on this blog. Do you think it would be straying too far from my usual life-with-dog topics to discuss fixing up a house and a property??
