Gobsmacked, plus GRAND Social No. 139 link party for grandparents


On Saturday, I was smacked in the face unexpectedly with the realization that in exactly six months, my baby, my youngest daughter, my little Andie who makes me laugh so hard will be thirty years old.

Well, not exactly six months, as Andrea will celebrate the milestone birthday July 9. I find it incredible, though. How can I — who sometimes thinks I'm just a hair over 30 (others times three times that age, I admit) — have a youngest child turning 30 years old?

It kinda freaks me out, to be honest. (Wonder how freaked out I'll be when my eldest grandson reaches that age!)

GRAND Social No. 139 link party

No freakout as the GRAND Social link party hits No. 139, though — just gratitude! Thank you so much for being here! Cheers to socializing!

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.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • 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="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" 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.
