This isn’t a very exciting, original, or creative story but I’ve had a few people wonder why my blog is named A + Life so I thought I’d take a post to share with y’all how I came up with it! (If you haven’t figured it out on your own already!)
Originally, my web address was spenafamily.blogspot.com. When I realized that I actually wanted to try and grow my blog and take my hobby a little more seriously I knew that I needed a more official website domain and a blog name that stretched across all of my social media, so that all my lovely followers could find me easily!
Enter the idea for A + Life. Essentially, it’s all I write about. The A is for Abigail, plus, our life. Which is the majority of what you’ll find here.
It is kind of a funny pun now that I’m a homeschool mama and I sure hope for only A+’s 😉
I’ve joked with Jim that we can only name our future babies with A names so that my blog name stays relevant. I’ve also joked that if we have a little Finn, the poor guy would be adding a F grade to our family. HA!
And that’s it!
Now, for one last fun fact for y’all, I thought I’d explain how to properly pronounce our last name. Most people who read it pronounce it speh-nuh, but it is actually pronounced spee-nuh! It derives from Spinavak in the Czech Republic, but was shortened when they immigrated to America. Spena stands for dirt and vak means man, so we are a bunch of dirt men. Or farmers. Or in need of a bath 😉
And now you know! A + Life is for Abigail + Life and Spena is pronounced Spee-nuh.
