There is a new member of TheGnomingLibrarian family. She's an 8 week bundle of joy and complete destruction. I introduce you to Luna Lovegood Ellis. In an effort to find some perspective, restructure priorities, and leave work at a reasonable hour each day I decided to adopt this fur ball. It has only been two days, but I know have a new found respect for parents. Geez oh pete.
As for the name...I went through a variety of literary names. I had two that were kind of stuck in my mind. I thought Scout (of To Kill A Mockingbird fame) would be adorable, and I also loved Lola (shout out to Stephanie Perkins and Lola and the Boy Next Door). My mother, however, commented that Lola sounded like a strippers name, so she suggested Luna, and I knew immediately that was the right choice, especially after falling for the puppy's happy-go-lucky attitude.
I'm sure Miss Luna Lovegood will share many a book adventure with me and Mike, and I look forward to growing with her.
