My New Favorite Toy – My Rebel!

I’ve been taking some beautiful pictures with the Christmas present from my in-laws. The Canon Rebel XS. She’s my new baby.

She was with us in Spain…


She went to Hong Kong with husband on his study abroad trip…


She has accompanied us on many trips this winter and spring, including yesterday’s wedding in Cincinnati…

Tom and Laura's Wedding (7)

So after six months of having this lovely camera in our lives, we have decided that she needs a name. Yet, I am horrible in naming things [I don’t even want to think about naming a pet or when it happens, a child. I’ll worried the name I pick will scar him/her for the rest of their lives!] – so I need help.

Husband has picked the name Francesca. I have no idea why.

With such beautiful pictures under her belt, what name should I give to her? And why is she a she? Some things in life are simply a mystery.


  1. I like Francesa, you can call her Frankie!

  2. Oh my gosh, I am so sad - I somehow got unsubscribed from your blog and I was wondering where you went, but lo - you have been here the whole time. Fixed it though :) My friend in high school named her car's GPS Francesca, not sure if that helps or hurts, ha!

  3. I think that's a good name. I think my car is a she but I've never given her a name. A lady I work with has always named her cars.

  4. Oooh those are gorgeous!! We are still fighting over a name for our camera. Which is indicative of how fun it will be to name a baby, right? Hahah!

  5. Fabulous pictures! My sister is big on naming things also. Her car is Barb; her guitar is Judy; and her keyboard is Persephone.

  6. Oh I'm so jealous! I've been wanting a DSLR for ages and am still saving up for one. Beautiful pictures!
