About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

How do you pronounce that?

Apparently Bjorn is a very difficult name for people to figure out. We're changing the spelling to an alternate spelling Beorn.
We're both a little sad about it, but we don't want him to go his whole life trying to explain his name to people like Nate and I had to do yesterday. Again and again.
I guess we thought people were much smarter than they actually are.
Haha, I kid. Sort of.

Aww. The four adults in this household were all on your side... you should spell it the way you like it. People even have trouble with Lana. Every doctor / dentist office mispronounces it when reading it from the chart. I think names have become so unpredictable that anytime there's any doubt, people are going to ask. It does get old, but everyone who knows you will quickly learn.
Either way you spell it, it's a cool name, and he's a beautful boy!! <3

Heh, but then you're going to confuse the people who do know how to spell it! Either way, after the first few months everyone will be used to it.
