What's in a Name?

What's in a name? Alot, it seems.

You see, I've been wanting to start a blog for quite sometime now.

I've though about so many ideas, topics, events I want to write about. They rattle around in my head all day. I think about what I would say and what pictures I would post.

This has been going on for weeks. Months, maybe.

But the problem was, I couldn't think of a name for a blog.

I thought I had lots of good ideas at first. But they were all taken. It turns out I'm not that original. PictureThis - taken. ImagineThat-taken. BLK-Taken. MBK-taken. (All of these names are taken by people who haven't blogged since the year 2000, mind you. Shouldn't Blogger be recycling these by now?)

Then I went through a list of more obvious names. Things like "journey" and "adventure," but they seemed too simple. Life is so much more.

I thought "Colorado Kyles" was cute -- but it was just too close to my favorite
Texas Tilsens.

We're not adopting. Not expecting. Not moving. Not anything.

We're just living.

I wanted a place to share my life. My everyday life.

So here it is. "The way I see it." My thoughts, opinions, feelings, experiences, joys, disappointments, and excitement. I hope to capture it all here.

I don't promise to be blunt, completely transparent, or painfully poignant. I can't promise that every post will be meaningful and life-changing.

But I
will share my perspective on the mundane; the silly; the meaningful, and the not-so-important -- often as I view it through the lense of my camera.
