Joining in on the fun over at As Sweet As Cinnamon Dawn has been blogging about how your blog name came to be. Be sure to visit the links from everyone - makes for some fascinating reading!
So here is my story and I am sticking to it...
Our son, Dave, got me started on blogging as a birthday gift - I received an email from him and was told to go to the link he provided...there I was - all set up with the basics for a brand new blog called The Journal of Taylorsoutback. (WordPress) I still remember the excitement of seeing that first official comment from someone...and was amazed that people actually stopped by.
January of 2011 brought me to Blogger and some of their features which I enjoy using vs. WordPress. The name of the blog was switched to Thoughts From Taylorsoutback at that time. It has been a good move.
Taylorsoutback refers to where we live in Northern Wisconsin...on 40 acres of former farmland with a nice pond and natural spring. Other than the original homesteaders who lived in a log cabin initially, we are the only family to have occupied the property. At some point, the cabin was replaced by a brick farmhouse which apparently burned quite a few years ago. We have a modern version of the first log cabin. We built our log home in 1995-96.
My husband was born in Sydney, Australia in 1943. My mother-in-law was born and raised in Australia and was one of the first Australian brides to marry an American officer during WWII. When we moved into our new home, Mr. Outback called it Taylorsoutback.
This is where my Thoughts From Taylorsoutback come from - way too many and never enough time to do it all...always busy with quilting, gardening, our shelties, and watching bears, deer and abundant water fowl on the pond throughout the changing seasons.
Thank you for dropping by - and please come again real soon!!

Linking up with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter of the week - "Y" - stretching it to include My Back Yard...too many fun places to be!
