Hi there! And welcome to Bonnie Blue! This blog surrounds all the goings-on here at our beloved, little, just shy of 2.5 acres in Texas. We had our fair share of heartbreak with tragedies and Bonnie represented a new start, fresh perspectives, blue skies as far as the eye could see!
The name came about one night while watching Gone With the Wind, (can I get an Amen?!) If you’ve watched the movie based on Margaret Mitchell’s novel, you’ll remember that our sharp-tongued and shrewd heroine Scarlett yearns for her beloved Tara, the estate she grew up on. We needed a name! Later on in the film, sweet Bonnie was born and Melanie was quick to caution dashing Rhett that all babies are born with blue eyes. Awww but Rhett knew better, thus she was named Bonnie for her eyes were as blue as the Bonnie Blue flag. Well y’all, our farmhouse is blue!
I wanted the pictures, the animals, the neat and tidiness…the picturesque home on a quaint piece of land. Ha ha ha!!! Y’all I was naive! It wasn’t long after moving in that the dreams of shiplap and animals that don’t shed were shredded by comedic reality! That’s what brings us here. I don’t want to be another comparison to the seemingly perfect homes or lives; we aren’t an unblemished, perfectly staged Insta with an opposing caption. We’re real, we try, we mess up, and we laugh (sometimes cry tbh) through it. Some from all of us here at Bonnie Blue…
