Celebrate National Aunt and Uncle’s Day, July 26

I was blessed with some wonderful aunts and a fantastic uncle. The aunt in The Gift of the Poinsettia wasn’t based on a family member. A Birthday Basket for Tía and I Pledge Allegiance starred my beloved aunt, whom we called, Lobo, who was like a second maternal grandmother. I’ve also written about her in my poetry collections for adults. All my special aunts and my uncle appear in my family memoir House of Houses.

I love celebrations! A toast to wonderful aunts and uncles!
