As a writer on social media, you never really know what will impact your audience. For example, a recent post on my Facebook page set a personal page page record for likes in just two days. The entry contained the above two pictures plus the simple line — Audrey made this dress with some help from her grandmother. So pretty!

The entry only appeared on my page because I was tagged in my daughter-in-law’s post.
So why did this post strike such a chord?
