Let's start with the name.
I'm pretty sure it's obvious that I am Bella and my husband is Blackstone.
If you are following me, you know my blog URL is foobella.blogspot.com, which, as I said in my previous post, it will stay, even though the "title" will be bella + blackstone.
Where did foobella come from, you might ask?
Well, foo because I love Foo Fighters and my first ever internet username was foonation.
That name has been with me a long time and foo just kind of became my nickname in the online universe.
Seriously, I answer to foo like it were my given name.
Now, my parents call me Bella which isn't a stretch. ha. No, but seriously.
They only started calling me Bella as an adult, which is kind of strange, but, hey, it's better than some nicknames of my past, which we will not get into.
When I started this blog back in 2008 (seems so long ago, doesn't it?) I needed a simple name, but didn't want to use foonation, so foobella was born.
I will always be foobella or foonation, or just foo.
So, that's my half, but what about Blackstone?
Well, it's a lot simpler. It just happens to be Jason's middle name.
A family name. And a nice one at that.
So, that's where bella & blackstone was born.
