What's in a Name


The name of my blog, as well as the name I'd like to use for our "farmette" is from a childhood favorite.

I'm a BIG TIME reader and have been since I was young. By the time I was 8 or so, I was fully immersed in the world of Nancy Drew. To this day, my favorite type of books are mysteries, suspense or thrillers. Not to be confused with horror stories... I like to be a little scared, not terrified!

So when we moved here and started talking about names for our place, I of course picked "Red Gate Farm". My husband wants "Bouchard Gardens"... this name is a play on a famous garden on Vancouver Island (Canada).

We'll see who wins. At least for now I can use the name here.
