Howdy, friends! I would like to officially introduce you to The Bluebonnet Farmhouse. After a lot of thought, I have decided to change the name of my blog from The Navy Home to The Bluebonnet Farmhouse.
After restructuring and redesigning the entire website last year for a look more true to us and our content, it became more apparent that our name no longer suited us. Now that Chris has resigned from the Navy, we have moved back home to Texas, and own a home we can actually renovate; I felt the name needed some rethinking.
While renting and moving frequently with the military, we never wanted to spend too much on home goods that could get damaged or lost in a cross country move – which was a good thing considering this last move! Since we are settled, we have been able to invest in quality furniture and items that provide us with the cozy farmhouse feel we desire.
THE NAVY HOME
At the time of starting my blog, Chris was in the US Navy, we lived in base housing, and ironically our home on base was blue. That made naming my blog all too easy – The Navy Home – a double meaning. It began as a DIY blog with tips on how to decorate on a budget while renting, military life in general, and natural living.
THE BLUEBONNET FARMHOUSE
There was so much meaning behind The Navy Home that I did not want to lose, after all that is where everything began. So I decided to take our name and simply transform it into an even more meaningful title.
- Navy >> Bluebonnet
- Home >> Farmhouse
The word Bluebonnet comes from the fact that it is the Texas state flower, Chris and I are both from Texas, and we almost got married in a field of bluebonnets. Unfortunately, our wedding date was two weeks after the bluebonnets’ stunning display, which we couldn’t avoid since we were still in school. Not to mention, I love bluebonnets (what Texan doesn’t?) and my favorite color is blue.
The word Farmhouse is representative of our decor, overall lifestyle, and dream to one day have a true farmhouse on acreage. You can read more about what I mean by this in an upcoming post.
You will be seeing some changes on our website and social media pages while we work to update everything with our new name. In the meantime, you can look forward to all of the new content I am very eager to share with you!
We want to thank you for your support and welcome to The Bluebonnet Farmhouse!
P.S. There is even meaning in the font used in our new logo! The font is a replication of Texas pioneer woman Emily Austin Perry’s handwriting found in letters she wrote to her husband.
