Story Behind the (Shop) Name: The Navy Baby


Here's the story behind her shop name: 
     I was sitting at my computer contemplating starting up a new Etsy shop.  But, wait!  Before I could even register I had to create a shop name! AHHH!!!! After wiping the sweat off of my brow, I wrote a bunch of items down that I loved:

--Cherry blossoms (We just did a 3 year tour in Japan)
--sakura (Japanese for cherry blossom)
--crawfish (I am a Louisiana girl) 
--beaux or belles (I have 2 boys and a girl)
--boutique (The old buzz word)
--heirloom (Doesn't that just tug at your heartstrings?)
--fleur de lis (My Louisiana roots yet again)
--purple or pink (My daughter's two favorite colors)
  This was just the short list!  (I won't bore you with the long list)  

    I literally had to stop registering and come back a day later. When I did and re-looked over my list, I noticed I didn't put the one thing I love the most....my husband.  It is because of him that my most of my list even exists!  He is a Naval Aviator and we are a Navy family and we have three Navy babies!  So, once I realized that, I knew that was my shop name:  The Navy Baby.  Just as I was writing it my daughter walked into the room with her smocked dress on wearing my heels and a long strand of play pearls.  Just at that moment I knew I had to add a cute "motto" and so came "Where classy meets sassy" was born!
