our daughter's name is maypop and nearly everyday, i get asked "where did you come up with that?"
so here it goes:
while i was expecting....my husband josh and rebecca were off on a little hike though her woods. rebecca showed him an area where the maypops grow. having never heard of this lovely southern bloom, it inspired him. josh excitedly called me up and told me, it's maypop! we both imediately loved it. and thankfully we birthed a girl, one who beautifully wears her sweet name, maypop. i can't imagine her called any other name....well maybe pops.
we have made a tradition to head to our friends pond that is lined with maypops and watch the sun go down.
