Happy Socialite Sunday!

Hello Preppy!

January is a big month in my family as it is EVERYONE's birthday. Today we celebrated my PopPop's 95th birthday. Husband and PopPop share the same birthday and are both left handed. My PopPop is very important to me as he was the first, and may still be, the first person in my family to believe in me when I began writing Social Climbers, my novel. Thank you and love you PopPop!

I'm wearing my new CK Bradely dress that I copied off Queen Bee Swain when she posted it, I promptly went and bought one for myself.


With my nana, my cousins are like sisters to me as I don't have one any more.

In my novel, Social Climbers, I thank my peeps:
Dedication
For myself, my family, friends and those I look forward to meeting
You can stand under my umbrella

Acknowledgements
To my very first editors: My stepmother Connie and Aunt Loretta,
thank you. To my Father whose idea this was in the first place, of
course. To my Mother, if you hadn’t put me in white glove dancing
class, etiquette school, debutante teas etc. I probably wouldn’t have
had anything to write about. For my Nana and PopPop, thank you
for believing in me. To my loving husband, Rick, who supported me
throughout our entire married life. Thank you for letting me explore
yet another of my whims. To my sons Greye and Wyn who push me
everyday to be a better person without even realizing it. For teaching
me who I want to be when I grow up, as we grow together. I hope you
love someday the way I love you little pieces of heaven on earth. You are
the loves of Mommies life!
XOXO
