Happy National Sister’s Day!

My sister and I are the same kind of crazy.  We would do anything for each other and always have each other’s back.  In honor of National Sister’s Day, I thought Id share some childhood photos with you.



My sister and I at Nellie Bly amusement park in Brooklyn, ca 1970s. Check out my faux fur jacket. My sister still drives me around – just not in a cool fire engine.


Here we are, in our kitchen ready to dance and showing off our turtle Boxie (creative in the name department, weren’t we?). Btw, no, we were not taking dance lessons.


My first Holy Communion in 1980. Aren’t we little angels?


A little more true to form, lol!


Let’s Go Mets! Here we are at the NY Aquarium with our brother (he’s lucky to have us and he knows it – we tell him all the time, lol). Check out those groovy 1980s hair styles and clothes.

    Lovely pictures Jo, thanks for sharing them. I think that’s the first time I’ve looked at a ‘photo post’ instead of ploughing through reams of text. Makes a nice change. BTW what is your sister’s name and which one are you 🙂

      Thanks, Simon! My sister’s name is Maria. She’s the younger and smaller one. I would argue the crazier one, but she would say the same about me, lol!

        Ha ha, lovely pics though, so nostalgic!

        You should see some of the pictures I have with red carpeting and gold chairs. It doesn’t get more ’70s than that!

        I look forward to seeing them in a future post 🙂 Maybe I might put a photo post together myself now, not something I’d ever thought of before!

        That would be great! It’s a nice diversion and it allows us to get to know you better.

    Adorable photos – you and your siblings look just like your kids – I love them and the throw back styles or both hair and fashion. Love them all.

    Cute and fun. Who’s behind the camera (most of the time)?

      Thanks! My mother took most of the pictures.

    Haha! Love the 80’s hair. And it looks like your siblings made your childhood really special. The bond is apparent. ❤️

      I’m not sure what’s worse: The fact that we dressed that way or the fact that the styles are coming back!
