Pinterest love: Vintage Boston Terrier


everything about this photo makes me happy

What I'm Reading: The Hunger Games Trilogy


if you don't have any extra spare time
*for this book series*
to totally entrap you
I wouldn't go pick it up until you do
from the moment I opened the cover on this book
It was glued to my fingers
I didn't so much read this book
-I devoured it-
along with the second and third book in the series

The Hunger Games
Catching Fire
By Suzanne Collins


*these books are violent- surprisingly so since they are technically young adult novels*

Hurricane Sunsets

After Irene passed our coast
the sky was lit up with the most beautiful cloud patterns

*my prayers go out to the not so lucky states*

poem love: Mary Oliver


the uses of sorrow 

(in my sleep i dreamed this poem)

someone i loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.

it took me years to understand
that this, too, was a gift.

Come on Irene


It's Hurricane Season again....
it looks like Irene is headed our way
I've got bottled water
and bottles of wine
I'm knocking on wood that everything is going to be okay

It's been so busy here in South Carolina

we've been hitting up the beach as often as we can

*best cheap dates ever*

the art of words- Jane Austen style

Pride and Prejudice
(for sale here*)

I really would like to see this poster hanging in my sewing crafty room
I love that it contains the entire story of
Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen 

Whenever I want to read something
and I've already read everything lying around the house
I reach for my copies of Pride and Prejudice
or Sense and Sensibility
I find that every time I re-read them
I understand them better and relate to the leading ladies better

I read them first in high school
and may have been a bit young to understand all the intricacies of the relationships
it's amazing how you can relate to a story published in 1813
and the old style of writing is not hard to follow at all

It might be time to re read all the classics from my high school english classes
