New Name

Hi friends,

When I started this blog I decided to use my name as the URL because I couldn't think of anything else.  I had always planned to come up with a title, but that fell way down on my to do list and I just haven't thought much about it until recently.  I really don't like having my name as the title of my blog as I never intended for it to be all about myself.

This has really become a place for me to share about our lives and our home here in Portland.  I have a lot of future plans on improving the content of this blog and I thought a new title would be the best place to start.

This blog is officially called Rain or Shine and the URL will remain the same.  I chose this name because, besides the obvious that it rains a lot in Portland, I want this to be a place where I write honestly about the happy moments in my life (let's call that the shine) and the more rainy moments as well.   I also hope to post DIY projects and fun finds that will brighten up your rainy days, too.

In the next couple of months I will be introducing a weekly series that I am excited about as well as a giveaway or two.  Stay tuned.



  1. I love the new title, girl! I did the same thing when I started a blog--used my full name. But then I realized it wouldn't be good to have my whole name out on the internet with no filter of who sees and reads about my life. So I wrote down a bunch of different title ideas and came up with "Frills for Thrills"! It's so fun to have an original blog title and definitely sets your blog apart from the others : ) (not that there's hundreds of other kira lynn's, but you get what I'm saying...)

  2. Great title! Perfect fit for Portland life:-)

  3. Yay! Cute title Kira...I can't wait to see what all you have planned!

  4. Fun! I love reading your posts.

  5. I love it! I have been wanting to come up with a new catchy title for my blog as well. But nothing has come to me yet. Look forward to reading your weekly series!


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
