The Quotable Anne: The Bend in the Road

I got my hair cut today. Just a trim. Nothing drastic. I'm sure only the very observant will notice that anything is at all different about me. That's how it is just about every time I get my hair cut. I'm not a big fan of change--both in well as in life. Today's highlighted… Continue reading The Quotable Anne: The Bend in the Road

The Quotable Anne: Kindred Spirits and Hospitality

This past summer I have been rereading the Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery. These books have been very helpful to me these past months.

Favorite Introverts from Literature

I am writing this post as a result of rereading Anne of Green Gables. It's not because of Anne herself. Anne is probably the most extroverted of all of the extroverts out there. No, I had Matthew Cuthbert in mind. He is such a lovable character, but he is so introverted--which got me thinking. What other lovable introverts… Continue reading Favorite Introverts from Literature

Motherly Wisdom from “Little Women”

Looking forward to the new Masterpiece version of Little Women airing tonight, my plan over the last couple of weeks has been to read the book. Considering that the '90s version with Winona Ryder is one of my favorites, it's hard to believe I've waited 'til now to read the book. Sadly, that's the case with many… Continue reading Motherly Wisdom from “Little Women”
