Here we are, but what a struggle! What hard work just coming up with the name! And this is only the beginning…
It all started as an idea my daughter and I had a little while ago, something that would unite us and show all the stupendous things we do in our pretty normal life otherwise, things we adore, things we’d like to do, things we dream of, you know – simply, those sparkles that give our dull routine the appearance of an exciting and worth-living existence.
I said “something that would unite us”, mother and daughter, friends, almost sisters sometimes…but it ended up dividing us: why put your name first, what do you mean by that, why don’t you make it fair?? We took a bit of time off and Anita ended up saying “It needs to be about what we both like.” Let’s name it “Just what we like… Just what we adore.” I concluded. Peace again, another little storm we overcame with a smile and a hug in the end. And there it was: a simple title we won’t regret later, something that will describe uson as well… It will still be about those things we like, although they might be radically different from what we prefer now. And hopefully we won’t argue so badly in the process of making this and the “we” will still represent our bond.
There we go, “Good light”, like photographers say, “Fair winds and following seas”, as sailors wish each other or simply “Good luck to us!” Who knows what great adventure awaits ahead?
Will we do more for the sake of this blog? Will we understand we do so much already but didn’t realise it until showcasing them here? We’re truly enthusiastic about this journey we’re about to start together and we hope you’ll come aboard. It feels like a celebration… and I’m celebrating my birthday today, but it suddenly became more significant. What a joy! I love you, Anita!
