the girl behind the blog.

If you have been reading this blog for a while now...you probably already know who I am. My name is Kara...don't know how to pronounce it?  Just take a look below. This is how my parents taught me to teach others how to pronounce my name.  

How did my parents come up with it?  I don't really know...I never have asked.  I think my dad liked it, so that's what they decided on.  Never in my life have I wanted to change my name...I actually kind of like it. People remember it very easily...they just can't ever pronounce it.  

Lately I have been interested in what it means and these are few things that I found.

Kara means pure.

"People with this name tend to be orderly and dedicated to building their lives on a solid foundation of order and service.  They value truth, justice, and discipline, and may be quick-tempered with those who do not.  Their practical nature makes them good at managing and saving money, and at building things in the material world.  Because of their focus on order and practicality,they may seem overly cautious and conservative at times.  

"People with this name have a deep inner desire for love and companionship, and want to work with others to achieve peace and harmony."


Wow. That couldn't be anymore true.  

Now...you may be looking at my blog name, twitter handle, and instagram.  Ms. Kara Belle.

That's my nickname.  

Ever since I can remember my dad and close family friends called me Kara Belle.  I added the Ms. because at the time I was working as a teacher.  The crazy thing is that Christopher's last name was Bell.  Crazy to believe...I know.  When we were dating and he had first heard me called Kara Belle...it kind of shocked him.  I can see why.  

I never based my social media names off of his last name.  I have always loved being Kara Belle...so that's why my blog url and social media accounts are mskarabelle.  It's me.  It's who I am...and it is what I have been always called.  

I hope you enjoy your name as much as I do... take some time and look to see what it means.  You may find out something you didn't know before.
