Today’s Daily Prompt: Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
My blog title is very simple really. No big exciting story to reveal here! I’ve always been a night owl (I can’t remember not being a night owl). While growing up, my parents kept my sisters and me to a strict bedtime routine on school nights and I hated it. I never “felt ready” for bed. I was ALWAYS wanting to stay up later. I remember as a young girl thinking that I couldn’t wait to “grow up” when I would be able to stay up as late as I wanted. Of course I see now that my parents were doing what was best for me and I did the same with my sons in trying to enforce a bedtime routine with them too and emphasize the importance of sleep. And guess what? I’ve raised two night owls too. Maybe it’s in the genes. I don’t know.
I’ve always been a deep thinker and for some reason I seem to come alive around 10 pm at night. That’s the time when I start cleaning house, doing laundry, and usually writing. I feel more creative at night than I do during the day. My blog has no particular theme and I enjoy writing and reflecting about a variety of things– favorite recipes, animals, thoughts I have, things in the news, books I’m reading, etc.
So my blog title, Moonlight Reflections, is pretty self-explanatory as is my tagline, Musings from a die-hard night owl. As an animal lover, I just happen to also love owls too and find them pretty fascinating.
