JON-ICA - Portmanteau

What is a Portmanteau - a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms (as smog from smoke and fog)

Celebrities starting 'morphing' names during the Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck relationship when Bennifer was born. Followed by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - Bra-ngelina..

Now, there's Jon-ICA. My cousin started calling us this about a year ago because we have been going through early nesting.  At 40, with two grown boys ( almost 17 and almost 19) we are spending more and more time together.  We are both discovering each other and what's going to be the next chapter in our lives.  This summer we have been going on road trips together, just impromptu day trips and enjoy this summer.  The next phase of our relationship begins and we are up for the challenge. There will be fights ( oh boy there will be !) . Despite the arguments, nagging, annoying - we have one GOAL , to continue our work with F.L.A.G.  and while we do that we can enjoy the world, too.
