About the blog title... Golden Boys and Me

As I was sitting outside today, I noticed the trees and how the leaves in my yard are about to turn green.  But, they are that beautiful golden color. Doesn't everything seem so fresh, and well..possible in Spring?

Which reminded me of one of my favorite Frost poems...

This is the what I was referring when I came up with the name Golden Boys.  I want to document as much as I can about my boys while they are growing up because I know this time is fleeting.  

It is also a play on words that we had 1 Golden Retriever at the time I started blogging.  Now we have two.  Since Golden Retrievers are my favorite breed of dog, it seems like I really love gold.  Not gold jewelry though.  Jewelry is just not my thing :)

And that's the story of the name of this blog.


  1. This is gonna sound silly, but I remember that poem from The Outsiders. Great post!

  2. Hi Kim!
    Not silly at all, I LOVED The Outsiders!! I remember Ralph Macchio saying "Stay gold Ponyboy". Thanks for reading and commenting. I really appreciate it! xo, Courtney

  3. Did you study literature in school? I don't remember any poems at all but then I'm old, lol. Very nice touch putting poem in your post, really enjoyed it.
    Your boys are so handsome.
    I have 2 boys 16 months apart between 2 girls, 10 yrs. apart. Love your dogs too, they're so cute, I am partial to Golden retrievers also but have a black lab/border collie. Adopted him from a PetSmart adoption fair day. Are your dogs boys too?
    Found you thru "A 2nd. chance to dream" blog hop.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting! I studied elementary education in school so that included a good amount of literature. I have one male and one female Golden.
