Behind "Melissy Goose"

A few weeks ago my mom surprised me with this amazing floral arrangement she put together. The significance behind this arrangement is not only that it was put together with all sorts of flowers of my favorite color (purple), but it was the vase that made it so special.

As you can see in the picture, the vase has cute little geese on it. 

Growing up, my Dad always called me his Goose. I have many home videos of him and I playing back and forth with him calling me a goose and I always replied "No, you're a goose!" It was something we playfully did all through my childhood. I was his goose. I was his little girl. I loved him so much!

Seven years ago this month, my sweet Daddy passed away. It was a shock and something none of us expected. It changed our lives forever. Easter is still the hardest holiday to celebrate in my family, as he passed away just a few days after. I love him and miss him so much.

How did I come up with Melissy Goose as my blog name? My sweet hubby calls me all sorts of nicknames...and one day combined Melissa with Missy and called me "Melissy." In honor of my Daddy and the wonderful memories I have of him, I am his Goose. And there you have....Melissy Goose.

Do you have a blog? I'd love to see it! What was the meaning behind your blog's name?
