Blog Every Day in May - Day 12...9:54 PM
How my blog got its name...
It was 2010.
My husband and I along with our 18 month old daughter had moved interstate away from my family to a farm in a fairly isolated area. Well, isolated compared to where I came from and was used to.
At times I felt rather lonely.
I also felt a tad frustrated because with looking after our young child and long trips for anything like groceries or any other supplies of any sort, I didn't get time to create - my hobby, my outlet.
I resorted to surfing the net to fill the void and came across a few craft blogs that I still read today. I lived vicariously through their creative lives.
After a while, the thought hit me...
"I could blog!"
Why not!?! Writing is also a great outlet for me. Getting things down on paper or typed onto a screen makes more sense than trying to speak things out. I explain things better through writing.
At first I put it off because I wanted to make sure things were planned out perfectly in order to start. But one day I just sat down and bit the bullet. I do admit I am a perfectionist to the point of procrastination. If I can't do it right and well the first time, it doesn't get done straight away. But I realised that one day that waiting was proving to be a waste of time for me and I just had to let go and just do it!!
So I started thinking about names.
I wrote quite a few options down.
But finally, out of the blue, One Big Sunshine Spritzer popped up. And that was it. It stuck.
And it's perfect for me.
I love all things sunshiny, happy and spritzed with sparkle!
I want life to be that way.
No matter what, through the thick and thin of life, the good and the bad, the positive and negative experiences, I want my life to be One Big Sunshine Spritzer.
And I want to the spread it around and make life just that bit more filled with happiness and sprinkles of sunshine for all around me.
That includes you, my readers.
I really appreciate your presence here and taking the time to pop around when you do.
I hope right now you can smile and see the good in life :-)
With Sprinkles of Sunshine...
