My Blog's Name

Karen over at My Colonial Home is having a drawing to celebrate her 4 year blog anniversary.  All that she ask, is that everyone explain how they came up with their blog name.  I have decided to join in on the fun.  You can go here if you would like to participate as well:

I chose my blog name "Apple Grove Treasures" because I used to own an apple orchard in Maine...hence the "Apple".  We still own the orchard, but we have personally relocated and do not run it as a business anymore. 
When it was open, we had a country store inside a big red barn that we built.  In addition to a variety of apples, we sold donuts, cider, pumpkins, baked goods, jellies, pickles and of course crafts....hence the "Treasures".
I chose "Grove" instead of orchard as it just sounded better to me, more cozy.  It also is my niece and nephews last name (Groves).  Just seemed to fit!

I opened a store years ago online with this name, but with all the things going on in my life at that time, I really just didn't have the time or desire to continue with it.  When we relocated to Florida, I decided to start blogging as I have always had an interest.  I began Sunday January 1st, 2012.  It seemed like a good way to meet people with my same likes and maybe get me motivated to start creating again.  Also I thought it would be a good way to record events that I wanted to share in our "new" life.
There you have it, my blogs name.  Maybe one day, when I get some of my old pictures of the orchard downloaded, I will share them with you.  Until then have a great day:)

Interesting how you named your blog; mine is http://terragarden.blogspot.com
because my first name is Terra and I love to garden, and write magazine articles about gardening, and a book (not published yet).
So that is the story of Terragarden.

Great story of your blog name. You are right Grove sounds so much homier than Orchard. Would love to see pictures when you get a chance. Have a good one Lori!
Be blessed,
Cindi
