Throwback Thursday: Mother- Daughter Night

Good morning! I’m up early because 11182058_10155515535345015_2390888850242929111_nI have a big day planned!  Tonight I will be attending the annual Mother-Daughter dinner at the Ramada with my natural daughter, Angela, the blonde in the photo, and my “chosen” daughter, Michelle, the brunette. The dinner is a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research, and each year, my wonderful husband, John,  purchases the tickets for us.

Angela and Michelle may not be sisters by blood, but they are sisters in every way that truly matters. They’ve supported one another through thick and thin ever since they met about twenty-five years ago. When we go camping together, we are quite the army since they have eight children between them now, and six of those are boys. Ages range from 16 to Mother-daughter dinner 2016almost 8. How time has flown!

The Mother-Daughter evening includes cocktails, a silent auction, incredible meals, wine and dessert. The money raised over the years has been substantial and when matched by Scotiabank, it goes a long way toward breast cancer research.

Here we are in 2016 when the theme was black and white. This year, it’s spring fling, even though we haven’t seen much spring here yet. So, for today, it’s hair, nails,  and getting ready for a little me time. How about you? What’s on your agenda today?



Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have published 24 manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.
