Why the Lavender Ladybug?

I chose the name after much deliberation. I wanted something that would create a mental image and would represent our family. My favorite color since I was little has been purple/lavender and now it's H's favorite color. I don't even have that much purple around the house so that choice was totally on her own. Although it could change a week from now, you know how 4 year olds are.

The other reason is that H has an infatuation with ladybugs. Her and Gama found a ladybug on one of Gama's burning bushes last year and she's loved looking for them whenever she's outside.


This was at the ladybug release at the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival last year. H was definitely the ladybug charmer. There was a photopass photographer that came over and couldn't stop taking pics of her because the ladybug just wanted to stay with her.

We bought ladybugs last summer to release in our yard to help get rid of the aphids on my roses. We had lots of fun letting them go.

And here's H's ladybug dress. This is one of her favorites. This picture was taken in Hilton Head, SC this spring.


A name can say a lot....
