I love this photo of Kari taken on Dylan's birthday earlier this month and chose the papers from my September Gottacraft kit featuring Crate Farmhouse to go with the photo. I thought the bright cheery mix of colours suited both the picture and Kari to a T.
I was a little stuck at first for a title but then thought her name meaning would make a lovely title and carry on the bright and happy theme to the layout. When we found out in 2004 we were having a little girl the name search began in earnest. We eventually settled on Kari which we pronounce carry although it is also pronounced kah ree and I found it in a book by one of my favourite authors, Dean Koontz (the doctor's colleague is called Kari). When I did some research I found the name originally came from France meaning Joyful song although it is now more common in Norway, Iceland and Finland as both a male and female name. As I am part French and I love to sing I thought I would never find a more perfect name.
I hope you like the layout and the story behind how Kari came by her unusual but not crazy name (I think she is the only Kari in the UK) thanks for popping by x
