It's my AUNTiversary!

Thirty-five years ago today, I became an aunt for the first time. As a senior in high school, I really didn't understand how that new title would change my life. I now have three nephews (& a niece-in-law), four nieces, a great-nephew, and four great-nieces.

Several years ago, I posted some reflections On Being An Aunt and a few years later shared about A New Season of Life as the summer visits waned and many of our interactions came through technology. Although our times together ebb and flow over the years, I truly love spending time with all the nieces, nephews and greats! Oh the places we’ve been … and the places still to go!


  1. And you are a great example of being a good auntie. All the nieces & nephews are quite fortunate to have you as part of their lives.

  2. Congratulations on your AUNTiversary! I'm a little over 10 years behind you - my favourite time has been/is when we snuggle up for me to read to them.

  3. They are all blessed to have you as an aunt! Love that wonderful collage of photos!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
