I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Giveaway: Win a copy of Black Man on the Titanic in the Rain Drops on Roses Giveaway!

Welcome to the Rain Drops on Roses Giveaway Hop hosted by MamatheFox

Yesterday, April 15, was Titanic Remembrance Day. It was on April 15, 1912, that the Titanic sunk on her maiden voyage and more than 1500 people died. Most of us know the names of at least some of the more well-known people who died as a result of the disaster including John Jacob Astor, Isador & Ida Strauss, and/or  Margaret (Molly) Brown. However, there were a lot more people who lost their lives that day whose names are not as nearly as well known. Joseph Larouche is one of those people. He was traveling on the ship with his pregnant wife and two daughters all of whom survived except for Joseph. Black Man in the Titanic is Joseph's story. This book does not only focus on his fatal voyage aboard the Titanic but his entire life up to that time as well. Joseph was from a prominent  Haitian family, and his history is intricately tied up with the history of that nation. In fact, his uncle was at one time President of Haiti. For more about this book, see our previous post Tips for Tuesday - Books: Black Man on the Titanic. Enter to win a copy below:

  1. We toured a Titanic Museum and it was so interesting! Many people do not realize that many, many of the Titanic's lifeboats were sent away from the sinking ship with empty seats available!
