Beautiful Words || July '18

Although I deeply love the oceans, deserts, and other wild landscapes,it is only the mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnet pull to walk deeper into their beauty.

Baby Name Challenge || T A G

Ok! Now that I finally finished the posts about my trip out East, I can get caught up on other posts, such as tags. (and a photo dump for June will go up one of these days *facepalm*)

Felicity tagged me for the Baby Name Challenge, and that's what I'll be doing today. This may be a little hard for me. I have always thought about baby names, and kept a list of ones I like. But the list has always been super short. So hopefully I can come up with enough names to answer all these questions *laughs* 
Hope y'all enjoy!

R U L E S:
