Favorite Things to Do in the Spring

Crane My Neck to Look at Flowers

I love going on walks just to see all the flowers cropping up. I probably look like an idiot as I’m glancing back and forth at the daffodils and the pansies and… oh yuck! What is that disgusting smell coming from that tree? Oh, and there’s another daffodil. So beautiful!

One Skill I Wish I Had But Don’t

Have you ever looked at your handwriting and winced? I know I have! I am embarrassed of my handwriting, and no matter how much I practice, it still looks awful. I’ve always been envious of those who can write in beautiful calligraphy style script.

This week’s blogging challenge has inspired me to take a calligraphy class! I don’t know how it’s going to go, or if it will give me any sort of beautiful handwriting skills, but at the very least, it can be a great research opportunity for my books!

My Favorite Memory and Why

Giving birth is quite the ordeal, from the misery of contractions, to the uncertainty of adding a new member to the family, to the excruciating agony of giving birth (yes, my epidural didn’t work!). But when you hold your new baby in your arms, that moment is when everything in the world seems to align.

I didn’t get to hold my first baby boy after birth because of complications with his breathing, but I did for my second. My favorite memory is holding my baby girl in my arms and looking down at her face, knowing that she was mine and I went through something great to bring her here.

Would I do it again? Eh… Ask me in a couple years. But there is no greater joy than that love of mother and child!

Books I Reread or Want to Reread

I really liked the three books in this series. Well, the first one and the third one. But it’s something I definitely want to reread in the near future. An earl who lost his sister and let his home fall to ruin. A woman who is fleeing an unwanted marriage and ruins her own reputation to do it. I love the romance and the characters!

Best Book/Movie/TV Couples

Tristan and Isolde from Merlin

I really like the way the tv show, Merlin, portrays these two. Although it doesn’t delve deep into their story, I feel like their characters are given a lot of “oomf” and personality. Need I mention their dedication to one another??? They are the gold standard for relationships.

If you are a reader, chances are you’ve fallen in love with a fictional character. I know I have plenty of times! When your stomach flips giddily, and you sigh when you think about them. (We’ve all done it, right?) Here are some of my most favorite book boyfriends of all time.
