I've been tagged again! Heidi of the lovely blog Along the Brandywine was kind enough to tag me with the Sunshine Award tag. Thanks so much, Heidi! I've had lots of fun putting this post together! 1. Do you have a favorite spring color? Pale teal/blue is one of my favorites – like … Continue reading The Sunshine Award
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
Christmas time has come upon us again!! I'm not sure about your house, but mine is filled with wrapping paper, gingerbread, Christmas lights and stockings. 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
Picture this with me. You're waiting, full of expectation, in your local museum.

Home is my school, my work, my sanctuary. And I am sure that for most … Continue reading I’m Going On An Adventure!
I wasn't brought up reading much poetry. As I've gotten older, though, I've really discovered a taste for it; and along with the taste, the awareness of my poetic ignorance. I couldn't tell you what meters and patterns belonged to which poems to save my life. But I can enjoy the feel and sound of poetry … Continue reading The Merry Old Inn
Few books have captured my heart so completely, formed my character so dramatically, and impacted me as deeply as The Lord of the Rings.
