Happy St. Patrick's Day!! This holiday has always been kind of a big deal in my family. Green streamers get taped up all over the house, we enjoy neon-green pistachio muffins from the local grocery store, and sing "Be Thou My Vision" during family devotions. Perhaps it's because we've spent weeks in Ireland in the … Continue reading Top O’ The Mornin’ To Ya!
Kellie Falconer of the lovely blog, Accordion to Kellie, is throwing a magnificent blog party! Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea how a blog party worked. Though I'm still very much a novice in the whole "blog party" business, I am quite enjoying my very first introduction to it! It's … Continue reading The Literary Heroine Blog Party
It's not a very good picture, and I did forget to add a nose onto my snowman, but I have been wanted to do this Calvin and Hobbes snowman my entire life! 😀 I hope you all are staying warm and enjoying the beauty of this cold weather!

This past year has been such a blur of new experiences that last night, I actually had a hard time remembering … Continue reading Happy New Years’ Everyone!

I am truly convinced that (like the carollers have always told us) Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! Little things keep delighting me this season, and I … Continue reading A Few of My Favorite Things
The other day, I was absolutely miserable. I was sick in bed, desperate for something to get my mind off of my pain. My sister had just gone to the library and come back with a stack of random movies and TV shows. I begged her to hand me one of the DVDs; I put … Continue reading The Rise of the Guardians Movie Review
Since we last met here on this blog (a total of three days ago) I have completed the second of Lemony Snicket's 'wrong questions.' Yes, my friends. I am quite definitely in love. And I know what I'm getting for Christmas. A nice new row of four shiny-dust-jacketed books by Lemony Snicket. Or, due to … Continue reading Obsession: A Word Which Here Means…
"There was a town, and there was a girl, and there was a theft. I was living in the town, and I was hired to investigate the theft, and I thought the girl had nothing to do with it. I was almost thirteen and I was wrong. I was wrong about all … Continue reading Who Could That Be At This Hour?
