“You have two numbers in your age when you are ten. It’s the beginning of growing up.” ― Maud Hart Lovelace
In naming our blog, I decided to focus on a literary reference from the Betsy and Tacy story by Maud Hart Lovelace which I enjoyed reading as a child. Not only was there a character with my name but she had two cool friends uniquely named Tacy and Tib. For a girl with an uncommon name, I felt connected to these stories and even more so because they were set in a fictitious town in Minnesota.
Now that I have moved from Minnesota, to California and subsequently to Canada, I feel this title is even more appropriate about my life and going on an adventure. Like the girls in the story, I am trying to make it over that big hill and even as an adult I am still growing up.
