Two years ago, we crossed a giant milestone in our lives. We bought a house. A great house, near the center of Ghent and more room than we ever had, combined. (We lived in my old student room before.)
Now two years later, we’re celebrating our first house-birthday. And just in case you haven’t heard, a house year is 712 days, or 2 human years. This means it was about time we decided on a name for him or her.
After juggling with a few ideas we decided on Billie. There was no special reason, we just both liked the sound of it.
I really like the name, however I feel I might have missed a big chance. Imagine us saying goodbye to our friends and saying “Well, we are off, we’re heading to Annie.”
Strangely enough, it were all guy names we came up with. I believe that Natali did think of this.
We’re happy to have celebrated his name day in his current state, as the renovations are about to start and he’ll never be the same again.
We hope this won’t be to painful for you Billie.
