Because it’s my Birthday

8303876461_06fd140682_oI turn 32 today…and what better way to celebrate than a throwback pic to the 80’s.  Man…the 80’s were hilarious.  Candy cigarettes from the corner store and fake balloon breasts.  Those candy cigarettes actually puffed plumes of powdered sugar “smoke.”  Can you imagine getting away with that today?  I’m on the right and my older (much cooler) cousin is on the left.  Has she got the pose down, or what?!  I’m trying my best to keep up, but I look hilariously awkward.  At the risk of sounding like a little old lady…where does the time go?  And come to think of it… after nursing two babies, I might take another whirl with those balloons.

    This photo is soooooo good! I read and enjoy your blog. My grown children, with young children of their own, are your generation and I have a similar picture of them. Thank you for the laugh and the memory.

      Thanks Elyse- did you see Little Bites in a store already??!!! Would love to know where?!

      We have to get together soon! I was thinking of you the other day, wondering if you are already dreaming/ scheming for your next book! We authors are nothing if not gluttons for punishment (ie: deadlines!).
