Throughout this year, several bloggers will engage in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding. Others are absolutely welcome to join the conversation, as well. Learn more about the ladies of Blogversation 2012.
Today’s question comes from your Blogversation hostess, Colleen Newvine Tebeau, @cnewvine on Twitter.
What did you do on your summer vacation? (Even if it wasn’t a true vacation)
My mom had a tradition of taking a photo of me every year on the first day of school.
It was always the same pose: me with my book bag on, with my hand on the doorknob like I was ready to walk right out.
All the “first day of school” photos on Facebook have made me nostalgic for a getting a new book bag, sharpening my pencils and heading back to school.
They also reminded me of that quintessential September assignment: writing an essay titled, “What I did on summer vacation.”
Our summer flew by with loads of fun travel, including St. Louis for a family wedding, a relaxing long weekend in Phoenicia, a road trip down through Virginia to Nags Head and back by way of Philadelphia, then my first-ever Burning Man.
What about you?
