My name is Mia, which means “mine”, and I have always loved my name! My name is unique, its short, its easy for children to say, its understood in most languages (as well as often receives a giggle and jokes about the possessive form, to which I say, “mia, non tua”) and it has deep spiritual meaning for me. My mother said that when she was pregnant with me that she had a dream and in that dream God told her to name me Mia. That story is as much apart of my identity as the beauty mark above my lip. Each uniquely mine.
I was so excited when I realized that with my new married name my initials would be ME. I remember as a child I loved Mary Engelbreit illustrations and artwork and always loved that her initials were ME. I find great joy in spiritual meaning and connections and this is one of the millions that I have encountered in my life.
I am married to the love of my life and my best friend, Brian. We have a 7 year old kitty, Toots Schuzardi-Elizardi and a nearly five year old Golden Retriever, Zoe Abita Amber Elizardi. All of our lives have been punctuated by the most recent addition to our little family, Sofie Nell Elizardi, in March of 2011. Her name Sofie means “wisdom” and Nell means “bright light”. She embodies those ever so specifically.
