#ThrowbackThursday Everybody’s Going Surfing

I’ve had a couple of heroes who were surfers, just like Owen and Jon Pierce, the heroes in #1 and #2 from the At the Shore Contemporary Romance series. The influence for those is totally my daughter, my little surfer girl! LOL!

This is a picture of her on her very first surfing adventure. We were visiting California for the first time and rented her a wetsuit and surfing board. Headed to Malibu and found Zuma Beach where my daughter popped up on a wave on one of her very first attempts.

It’s no wonder she owns a surf and skate shop now!

#ThrowbackThursday Philly Flower Show

By this time of winter, my cabin fever has set in and I am so ready for spring! I love being outdoors. I love flowers and plants and the taste of sun warm tomatoes straight from my yard. Sigh. One of the things that keeps me going until then is the Philadelphia Flower Show! I can’t wait to go this year!

So today’s throwback is to the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show. I’ll have lots of photos for you the second week in March.

#ThrowbackThursday Our Disney Monorail Ride

My hubby, daughter and I are like the Three Musketeers and her awesome boyfriend is our new Fourth Musketeer! We always have lots of fun together and one of the places where we have fun is Disneyworld. In this picture, we asked our daughter to ham it up and make believe she’s afraid of the monorail. We thought she was pretty convincing. How about you?

#ThrowbackThursday Levittown Drum & Bugle Corps

Moving to the suburbs was an experience and although there were some tough moments, there were that many more good memories of growing up in Levittown. One of them was discovering the Levittown Drum and Bugle Corps which met just a couple of blocks away at the local church. It was one of first experiments with playing music, but from there, my sister and I both went on to other instruments. My sister was an amazing violin and viola player while I took up the bassoon. Being involved in music groups provided us both with amazing opportunities.

This photo is of us with our parents as we proudly display the bugles we were learning to play!
