Monday, March 3, is the fourth anniversary of SOS Aloha! The purpose of the blog - celebrate romance books and promote military families - began at the 2007 RT Booklovers' Convention in Houston. It was my second convention and I became the Master of Ceremony at the SOS Military Mixer.
The following year, Fabio and Steely McBeam joined us in Pittsburgh for the SOS Military Mixer. 2009 was a banner year - my husband sang the National Anthem at the SOS Military Mixer. No sooner did we return to Baltimore that we received news we were moving to Hawaii! I wasn't sure how this long distance thing would work ... and that's when Mary Gramlich, THE READING REVIEWER (link), suggested I set up a blog.
I tried to register www.sosamerica.blogspot.com ... but it was not available. So I registered www.sosaloha.blogspot.com ... and the Aloha Spirit was born in Romanceland!
We are back in Baltimore and I am thankful for the many friends I made during this journey. I appreciate your support of SOS Aloha, romance books, and military families!
In honor of my fourth anniversary, I have sent four boxes to deployed personnel. There will be plenty of books and bling, dear readers, when I return from the 31st annual RT Booklovers' Convention in New Orleans (link).
