Do you recognize this sweet face?
Here are a few hints:
1. She celebrates the long lost art of writing lettersm using pen, paper--and stamps.
2. She has a marvelous sense of humor.
3. Her first memoir was recently published.
The adorable smile belongs to Becky Povich, author and blogger, and she is celebrating the publication of her delightful memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs.
Becky always has a smile and kind words for her friends and fellow bloggers. Her work has been
included in many publications, including Chicken Soup for the Soul. Becky has generously offered to give away a copy of her memoir (see below for details).
Becky sent along a few beguiling chapter titles. Don't they sound like fun?
“Mother Knew There Was No Santa in More Ways Than One”
“Piggyback Toes and Coffee Can Spittoons”
“That Crowbar Changed Everything”
“The Tupperware Queen of Tacoma, Washington”
“Doris Day, AE Hotchner, and Me”
“Thoughts on Love and Forgiveness”
Here's a snippet of a chapter:
……..I know I was only five or six years old during that time. Knowing my fear of the dark, during those same years, one of Mike’s [my brother] favorite things to do was to scare the living daylights out of me. When it would be nighttime, he’d say, “Let’s go play in our room!” To which I always happily agreed. (Ah, I was so trusting and naïve.) We’d scamper into the room and begin to play a game when all of a sudden he’d let out a bloodcurdling scream, turning the light switch off as he ran out the door, slamming it shut behind him. I’d run out seconds later, as soon as I could find the doorknob, squealing and crying hysterically. He’d be standing nearby laughing his head off. I think he got into trouble the first couple of times, but I fell for it so often that it just became Dad saying, “Mike, don’t scare your sister in the dark.”
