What the heck does Memims mean, and why did I choose it for a blog name?

These might be questions a curious person would ask. If you google “memims” (which I totally did, just to make sure it wasn’t actually a word.), you will get someone’s twitter account and a bunch of other random links.

What it won’t tell you is that it is actually the abbreviations of the three states that mean the most to me: ME – Maine, which is where I was born, and one of my favorite vacation spots; MI – Michigan, where I grew up and where most of my family is; and MS – where I currently live with my husband, Peter.

Memims has nothing to do with the content in this blog, but I couldn’t think of anything better to call it than something short and catchy, and that holds a lot of meaning for me.

Honestly, though. Where else do you see views like this:

Or this:

What about this gorgeous view:

Y’all. That last one is only half a mile from my apartment. I have lived in some pretty gorgeous places, and they all hold a very special place in my heart.

So, for all you curious folks out there, that is what Memims is. I hope you stay tuned. I’ve got some pretty big plans in store for this little corner of the interwebs, including Minimal Mondays, where I talk to you about my newest project in minimizing my possessions and how that is going for me. The plan is for that to be a recurring post, and once I cut things back as far as I can, it will be a way for me to check back in with you and let you know how it’s going. That will be starting this coming Monday, so make sure you check back!

Looking forward to chatting with you guys soon. Leave some comments below of your favorite vacation spots. I’d love to add them to a Travel Bucket list.
