Hopping into this thread a tad late, but I guess with not having the computer until a little while ago I missed its begining and didn't spot it before today
I've been reading through most of the 100+ posts before this one, and I feel like I know many of you a lot better now. I've commented to DH before (about forums in general) that I'm always curious why people pic the names and photos that they do, and why some folks write their user names all in caps.
Personally my user name is a sweet Italian word which roughly translated is the female form of "little one", and is a title that one might say to a little girl. My Italian husband says it to me however, and so it has a very special place in my heart. My current avatar picture is a red rose because roses are my favourite flowere ever and because it reminds me of the red roses in my wedding bouquet (
self confessed total romantic).
