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
As promised, here's a brief review of Alister McGrath's new biography of C.S. Lewis! I saw rows and rows and rows of C.S. Lewis: A Life, all in fresh, shiny dust jackets, in a bookstore over Thanksgiving. I picked up a copy, put it back down, read a bit here, a bit there, and debated … Continue reading C.S. Lewis: A Life
I suppose that if I were a truly accomplished blogger, I would have written this post last night! But New Years' Day is surely just as special as New Years' Eve, don't you think? 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!

My two friends (Margaret and her brother Galen) and I went to London, Scotland and Paris. A total of two and half weeks of travel, adrenaline, fatigue, and enjoyment. We … Continue reading A Hobbit’s Tale
I've got four days left until my trip to Europe!!! I wanted to quickly tell all of you that (aside from a few scattered pictures) you may not hear from me for a good while. I have got some adventuring to do! I fully intend to post a few pictures of my travels while I … Continue reading So long, farewell…
Making book covers is one of my favorite hobbies. I love embroidering them with my initials or an iconic image from the story itself. The only problem with these beautiful covers is that they only fit hardback books. I've thought through various ideas for my paperback books, but until now I have never come up … Continue reading Homemade Book Case
Yesterday, one of my dearest, most treasured dreams became a reality. I got a trench coat. I can't exactly remember when my fascination with trench coats came about. It seems that in every movie I watch, and book I read, at least one character has one of these incredible coats. (And more often than not, it's … Continue reading Keep Calm And Wear A Trench Coat
Though it's rained almost constantly for the past couple of months, our family has had a fantastic summer! Our grandparents are up to visit until September, and we've already made loads of memories. I thought I'd share some photos of my favorite summer memories so far.
