With Easter just a few days away, it reminds me of all the Easter Egg hunts we used to have with the kids when they were younger. We kept them up until the kids were way into their teens since it was so much fun.
Hopefully we’ll soon have another generation who can participate!
This is a photo from one of those long ago Easter Egg hunts.
Hubby and I spent our honeymoon in Hawaii and many many many years later, returned for an anniversary trip. One of the things I loved doing was going snorkeling to see all the fish. This is a photo of me, all ready to hit the water and see the fish.
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!
Today’s throwback is to my very first book signing. It happened in the Menlo Park Mall in Edison at the Barnes & Noble there. So exciting. They had me at a nice table toward the front of the store and gave me some flowers. My hubby and daughter brought me more flowers. This shot is of me with my daughter! How time flies.
Good morning! Hard to believe it’s Thursday already and time for a throwback! This one is not that far a throw since it’s from the 2014 RT Conference in New Orleans. Check out some of the Lucky 7 Bad Boys authors enjoying breakfast at the awesome Cafe du Monde. It was such a treat for us to get together to celebrate making the NY Times and USA Today lists with our Lucky 7 Bad Boys box set. Guess what? We’re doing another set for you in March of 2015! I won’t spill the beans about the theme just yet, but I promise you will enjoy the seven stories in the set.
We’re going back in time today on this Throwback Thursday and I’m wondering, “Did I really think those huge ass glasses made me look good?”
Of course, it’s hard for me not to smile as I remember this moment with my best friend, my daughter, aka the debut author of FOLLOWING JANE.
I am so proud of her for writing a book and for all that she has accomplished! You rock, Samantha.
What about you? Did you have glasses like this? Or how about those man shoulder pads that were so popular in the ’80s? I’m sure we could have lent them to an NFL player for a little extra protection! LOL!
