“What inspired the title?” She is asking of the title Home at Dawn.
I would love to tell you that it came immediately and naturally from my creative mind.
I had to look up on the internet what a blog title was. Then I looked up suggestions on how to pick a blog title. One suggestion popped out at me. It read something like this: jot down several ideas which reflect the theme of the blog, leave it sit for an hour, come back and pick which one you like best. So I did.
I knew I wanted to include the things that make my heart tick. Cooking. Family. Homemaking. Writing. Drawing. (I just took a second to see if I kept the list, but I can’t find it now. Obviously it wasn’t that great a list.) The last title on the list was Home at Dawn.
Growing up I never thought my name was great, but does anyone? Bethany means house of God. Dawn means, well, the break of day. When I combined the two, the image within my mind was beautiful, but it wasn’t merely a house in my image. It was a home.
I texted several people for their opinion. It was my lovely Amber who ultimately confirmed that Home at Dawn reflected my theme and incorporated my name. There you have it!
