{Light & Life}

While we were preggo, we chose not to find out the sex of our little one, so when Z was born we had not picked a name. We had some favorites, so on day two (after the scary stuff was over) we decided to look up the meanings of our top names to help with the decision. After looking them up we quickly made our choice.

Zoe means life and Lucia means light. And from the moment she was born she has been our life and light.

When Stephanie of Letters from Rita, a small hand-lettering shop specializing in custom work, approached a group of local bloggers and asked us if we’d like a hand-lettered phrase or saying, I jumped at the chance. Meaningful piece for our home, yes. Support a local Boston small business, yes! And I knew right away it would be something for Zoe's room. I toyed with a few ideas but the meaning of her name is something we really love, so I knew it would be perfect.
