Mitch and I both just read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn while on our bar trip to Europe and LOVED it! While we were on this trip, we decided that since we were about to start a new chapter of our life in a new city, we wanted to keep our friends and family in the loop. Then we had to make the decision of the name for said blog. Me being the accountant and the less creative one in this marriage deferred to my better half and former graphic designer to come up with a really catchy name. With the book being fresh on his mind, Mitch came up with the name A Blog Grows in Brooklyn. When he pitched it to me, I loved it because: We are living in Williamsburg which is where the book is set. We love to read just like Francie. We are writing a blog, and Francie loved to write. Most of all because if you read the book it is a story of Francie's life, and that is just what we want this blog to be. Nothing too fancy, just a place for us to write about the happenings of our life.
