The Sunday Post #21 (4.27.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
   
I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  

This past weekend, my brother got married - he was the last of us to tie the knot!. I drove down to Georgia from New York on Thursday and then headed back home on Sunday, so while it was a short trip, it was great seeing all my family. Having six siblings that live all over the east coast and one in London, it's hard to get us all together often, but when we do, it's great fun! 



Here's a picture of me and my siblings - while I am the oldest, I also happen to be the shortest - even with my heels! (I'm in the pink dress.) There is 9.5 years between me and the youngest, who is my sister standing right next to me. The groom is the second youngest.


Have a great week everyone!!!
