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:)
