Yay! I am finally a blogger. As I've read friend's blogs and such, I've often thought of things that I would like to say and memories that I would like to preserve online. But then the dreaded thought, what am I going to call this collection of thoughts, musings, rants, memories, and anecdotes? A friend suggested that I think of quotes that I like and maybe start with my tagline. Great suggestion, I thought! I love quotes. That love for quotes proceeded to make that way too challenging as I immediately thought of about 10 quotes that I absolutely love.
Well, I won't detail the rest of the long and laborious process that resulted in my blog being called Sunnyside Up!, but I will briefly explain it's meaning. Not only am I fifth generation Californian (thanks Mom for the clarification) which probably means that sunshine is somewhere in my DNA, but I am a perpetual optimist (one of those glass half full people which tends to get me into trouble as you'll see throughout this blog). I also plan to discuss all sorts of topics on this blog so needed a generic enough title to encapsulate all of that variety. So with all of those thoughts in mind, I came to think about the "sunny side of life." I can't take complete credit for the leap from the sunny side of life to Sunnyside Up, but once I heard it, it just fit.
Here's to living life Sunnyside Up!
