Welcome to Olive & Tate!
I hope you love the new name and logo as much as I do (if not, don't tell me, that's actually my handwriting turned Vector image turned logo, which I'm sure is making my Catholic School penmanship teacher cringe). It took tons of brainstorming and even more opinions and ideas from my Go To People to come up with a name that is clean, simple, reflective of me and doesn't exactly tie to a time and place.
So, why Olive & Tate?
Tate is the baby's nickname - it's short for Potato Head which was lovingly bestowed upon him by his grandfather when he developed a rather unique shape to his little baby noggin. As they usually do, the nickname morphed into Tate and now has officially stuck. We make an honest effort to call him by his given name but mostly because my husband is afraid the baby will go to Kindergarden and announce to his teacher that his name is Tate.
Olive is commonly used as code for I Love You, so essentially, the name of my blog can be loosely translated to I Love You, Gray.
The blog also graduated from a .blogspot to a .com!
The new address is www.oliveandtate.com, super easy huh??
The old URL will redirect you to the new .com but you'll have much less typing to do if you remember that new .com addy!
gratuitous champagne pop, because ya'll know I can't resist the bubbles.
Over the weekend, I'll change my Instagram handle so keep an eye out for that - and if you wanna chat, the new email email@example.com is already up and running!
So, there it is!
That incredibly drawn out cat is now out of the bag!
Hope ya'll love it, xoxo
