Everybody’s Talking About Favorite Childhood Memories

Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Mass-blogging day and giveaway!

It’s summertime! A season of long days and warm nights filled with games and ice cream and laughter. No other season is full of so many magical memories.

Remember when the carnival came to town? What about the ice cream truck? Sharing your Popsicle with your favorite four legged friend, sneaking out at night, playing in the sprinklers, family cook-outs, camping . . .

Today Bloggers everywhere are sharing their favorite childhood memories. Why? Because we’re celebrating Steena Holmes’ new novel Finding Emma, a novel full of childhood innocence and a mother’s devotion.

It was a warm summer day when Megan last saw her daughter Emma, that was two years ago. Unable to accept Emma is gone, unable to move forward, Megan watches as her life crumbles around her.

When Megan takes a photo of a little girl with an elderly couple at the town fair, she believes it to be her missing daughter. Willing to accept any consequence, she sets in motion a sequence of events that could destroy both family’s lives.

The blogs listed below have agreed to share their thoughts on favorite childhood memories through essays, poems, photo’s or other means of creative expression. These might be their own memories, memories of days spent with their children, memories created for other children . . . We really have no idea what’s in store for us but we can’t wait to find out!

We’re sure you will enjoy all of these fantastic blogs. Be sure to stop at each one along the way and leave a comment because each comment earns you one entry into our giveaway for a signed copy of Finding Emma. Leave your comment by Thursday, June 7th 11:59 PM PST to be entered in the contest. We will choose one random winner. Winner will be announced here in the comment section on Friday, June 8th.

Here is a list of all our participating bloggers. Following this list is Steena’s guest post about her own favorite childhood memories. We invite you to begin your journey down memory lane with Steena’s post, and then come back and work your way through our list of stops.
