Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

How I Came Up With The Name For My Blog!

Recently, I had been asked how I came up with the name for my blog.  It started when our daughter and son-in-law learned that they were expecting a baby.  After we were told the news that we were going to be grandparents, my husband announced that he wanted to be called Pop.  He then asked me what I wanted to be called.  I wasn't sure, at first and wanted to think it over.  A couple of days later I told my husband that I wanted to be called Lolli.  He said why do you want to be called Lolli?  My response was, "Think about it, Lolli & Pop!"  He started to laugh and said.  "That's great!  After all what kid wouldn't want to go to LolliPop's House?" 

So, that is where the name for my blog came from and is named LolliPop's Cottage. 

Just sharing! - Maeve
