Sunday Stills: The Legacy of Favorite #Places

Friday was the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of the official state legal lockdown here in California. It was a beautiful sunny day with mild temperatures.

I am excited to contribute to Becky's photo challenge Squares in September, In the Pink! While in San Diego for my 40th high school reunion last week, we stayed at my daughter's house.

Sunday Stills: Back to #School

Last week I took a short break from Sunday Stills to travel to San Diego for my high school’s 40th year class reunion (1978). Did you enjoy the break? I know a few bloggers posted a couple of Sunday Stills’ favorites! By the looks of my e-mail inbox, I see more folks are posting more …
