It’s Friday, I’m in Love

Alfie Boe I listened to a few episodes of the podcast, Desert Island Discs: Dame Judi Dench, Mary Berry and Alfie Boe. They were all delightful and, Alfie, in particular, was just charming. I love his story and the way he talks about his family. He recalls his father fondly and it is just so sweet. I first … Continue reading

Books I Read in 2015

Books I Read in 2015

I read some really good books this year. I became a regular reader again, thanks to living in the future and being able to carry my library in my pocket and read in the dark. I always have a book going and during some parts of the year I would read every day. I definitely … Continue reading

Beautiful Things

Beautiful Things

I was going back through some photos I took over this past year and found these from a day that I visited Longwood Gardens and played around with some macro filters. The day was incredibly hot and sunny, so not ideal conditions for lovely, soft photography. My face was sweating into my camera, every sky I … Continue reading

Those Aren’t Pillows: Thanksgiving Movies 2014

Those Aren’t Pillows: Thanksgiving Movies 2014

If, by chance, you are still holding out starting Christmas movies because it’s mid-November, then I have some Thanksgiving movies for you. Unfortunately there aren’t many, but thankfully (see what I did there?) my Friends help fill in the gap. Planes, Trains and Automobiles – Steve Martin and John Candy, classic John Hughes. Funny and awkward, it … Continue reading

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

I’ve been listening to Barenaked Ladies’ Stunt album this week. I love music from my youth that I can sing along with really really loudly. Bonus points for embarrassing my children. (My personal favorite song: Call and Answer) I finally finished watching How I Met Your Mother. And I actually really like the way it … Continue reading

Halloween Movies 2014

Halloween Movies 2014

As I posted last year, holiday movies are a big part of our celebration season. The requirements are simple: on theme with the holiday, enjoyable to watch over and over, cheesy, and quotable. (And for Halloween movies, these are NOT scary. Family friendly isn’t a requirement, but I do not like horror movies.) I’ve added a couple of … Continue reading

2013

2013

These questions came from Linda at All & Sundry, I have enjoyed reading her and others around the Internet answer these for years; reading A’dell and Jennie this week reminded me. 1. What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before? Honestly, I don’t do a lot of new things. I am the … Continue reading

Halloween Movie Season Has Begun!

Halloween Movie Season Has Begun!

One of my favorite favorite FAVORITE things about the holiday season is watching (and QUOTING) the same movies every year. We are a movie family and love to snuggle up on the sofa together with popcorn. James and I started years ago with our favorite Christmas movies, and over the course of our marriage we … Continue reading
