The 100 Years of Esther Williams Blogathon is here!


Happy Esther Williams Weekend! I am so delighted that we'll be celebrating Esther for the next three days, especially since we'll be ending the festivities on her 100th birthday -- a day that I will be spending trying her sugar cookie recipe and watching her Summer Under the Stars day on TCM. An unforgettable talent, brilliant businesswoman, and wonderful role model, Esther has been thrilling audiences for years and her influence is still felt today. I love this woman to pieces, and I can't wait to read what all of the participants have to say about her.

Participants, please leave a comment below once you are ready to submit your entry and I'll try to post them as soon as I can.
