Coffee & Conversation Link Party #87 – Back from AWOL!

Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #87 – hosted by PatAndCandy.com!

Coffee & Conversation with Pat and Candy!


So happy you’re here with us!

Hoping you all had a wonderful Easter! Our family took a loooong weekend, flying or driving in from various and sundry spots in the States, and congregated at a lovely beach house to celebrate my father-in-law’s 90th birthday!  We had a great time… And (as you may have guessed) didn’t get to spend too much time on electronics – well, most of us, at least ;-)!  So, sadly, there are no features today.

Howeverif you had a pinnable picture on your post, I did pin it!

I also want to give a “shout out” to the wonderful folks at Bright Ideas Press* who provided prizes at our Twitter party yesterday! 🙂  I hope you managed to make it – loved “meeting” some of you, and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. It was a very interesting experience!!

I’ve been very proud to tell you about their products and services. If you by some quirk of fate you’ve missed anything I’ve shared, check them out for yourself! We love their WonderMaps*, and have become a regular at the monthly Hangouts* they hold: live video chats where they discuss topics from helping kids handle emotions, to alternatives to college, to teaching entrepreneurship. Very informative and thought-provoking.

    Your Easter sounded like a blast/with Birthday thrown in. We had a great worship service followed by donuts in the park on dowels! pics on fb/instagram (suemooredonaldson) –so cute and an egg hunt for all ages. Then we hosted a sweet brunch w/ friends – I made meringue nests and homemade lemon curd to die for and of…still eating the leftovers. pics on blog – yummmmm. thanks for the link party. (:
