Happy New Year! I am Anne Z and welcome to my blog if this is your first visit. I have neglected posting here for a while, since I have other blogs running and SOOOOO many interests that keep me busy!

By way of introduction, I am a retired teaching tennis professional and coach. I have admired Barbra Streisand for decades and collected tons of her memorabilia. I am a MOM blogger and photographer. I have a ton of passions and will be sharing about some of them over the course of the next month while I participate in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I have completed it twice: once for my I Love Barbra Blog and once for My Warrior Mom Life Blog. I hope you will check them out in the near future!

On this first day of 2018, I will share a bit about myself. In the comment section, please feel free to add info about yourself so I can get to know who’s stopping by! It’s sort of like an online ice breaker!
