Birthday gals, plus GRAND Social No. 169 link party for grandparents

Birthday gals

Welcome back! I hope your weekend was great!

My weekend was spent celebrating birthdays. Saturday's birthday gal was my oldest daughter, Brianna, who turned 33 last Tuesday:

Cheers to the birthday gals!

GRAND Social No. 169

Cheers, as well, to this week's GRAND Social—the 169th, believe it or not! Thank you for joining the party. Please share links to your blog posts, if you're a blogger. Blogger or not, one and all are invited to visit the shared posts from our grand grandparent blogging community (and comment, too, if you have the time and inclination).

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
  • Adding your link adds you to my weekly email reminder the GRAND Social is live. Feel free to unsubscribe from that email if you no longer wish to receive reminders.
