Smacksy Sunday Link: My Parents Were Awesome

My parents, Sandra and Ed

Jeff's parents, Bob and Janis

Today is the one year anniversary of Smacksy and my 366th post. Thank you all for showing up here to read about our family. On Sundays, I traditionally post a link to a site I like. (When you've been blogging for a whole year it's mostly okay to announce that you have "traditions.")

Today's link celebrates family and more specifically parents, those people that before they were known as parents were just known as people. Super awesome people.

Eliot Glazer's blog My Parents Were Awesome showcases photos of reader's parents back in the days before they were parents.

Thanks for a wonderful year one, everybody.
High five.


  1. Yay! I am thankful you started a blog. You make me laugh until my bones hurt. High five!

    I have an awesome photo of my parents in short shorts (both of them) circa 1977. I should submit it.

  2. You don't look a day over 6 months.

    (And now I know where you get your beauty.)

  3. Congratulations! I love the pictures of your parents!

  4. Well done LPR! Congratulations on your anniversary.

    BTW - The resemblence between your dad and Bob is so strong! Great pics!

  5. I LOVE your blog! When are you guys coming to Chicago?! Or maybe we'll come to California. My aunt and uncle live in what used to be called Canoga Park, I think it's West Hills?

  6. Happy, happy anniversary! Love to you, your family and your awesome blog!



  7. A great year!

    Great parents!

    More and more and more to come please!

  11. Congratulations and thank you for the laughs. I love every moment I spend here.

  12. High five indeed!

    Your parents are beautiful. Makes me sad to realize I don't have many photos of just the husband and I together. Must add that to my growing list of things-to-do. Because it's SO important, I think.

    so happy to have met you. See you Sunday.
