What’s in a name?

I thought I would use today’s post to explain “Dae,” from Dae Design Group.

A long time ago a little boy met a little girl named, Alma Jean Daetsch. He went home and told his parents that he was going to marry that girl. As the years past and they grew up together, he began to call her “Dae,” which was short for, Daetsch, her last name.

More time went by and they did get married and they had 5 children. They named their second daughter, Deborah Dae. She is my mom. An amazing artist (not that I’m biased) and an even more amazing friend and mother.

The original “Dae” is better known to me as GG. She is my Grandmother and “GG” is short for “Goofy Grandma,” a name which she proudly assigned to herself and I proudly call her that to this day!

UPDATE: Sadly, on October 26, 2010 GG passed away, peacefully at her home. She will be missed terribly, but she will remain forever in my heart.

my lovely GG
