Little Moments :: Happy Heart :: Third Edition

Hey there! :)

Just wanted to share some of the happy that's filled my life in the last six months when you didn't hear from me on here. (Because trust me, there has definitely been happy moments. I may have unintentionally given the impression that life has been this chaotic and terrible thing, but no. That's completely untrue! There's been lot's of happy!)

(In case you wondered.)

So! Let's get to it, shall we? :)




Oh goodness! This little movie. Such adorableness and swoony-moments and well.....yeah. I have two words for you: JJ Feild. He is most definitely worth the watch. And he and Keri Russell? Yep, they make a great couple. I was also very impressed with the way it compared with the book. I've read the book (I have the book!) and was so very curious how I would feel about comparing the two. Let me just say that I'm definitely a fan of authors writing the screen play for their stories. Shannon Hale did a fabulous job. And yes! If you like Jane Austen, but aren't a purist, then I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this movie. :D




Speaking of Jane Austen, I saw this name on a paper at work and it immediately made me think of Persuasion. (Does that make me a little Austen-obsessive? Hmmmm.....probably. Ah well! I'll claim that title. ;) Please tell me someone else knows who the Musgroves are!




This book, you guys. Seriously! I'm positive that I've written about my favoritest book ever, which just so happens to be the story this beauty is based on. So to say that I was excited to read this would be a vast understatement! :D And it most definitely lived up to it's potential. I'm so very pleased Ms. Reay was inspired to write this and that it was published for our reading pleasure. Because a pleasure read it will definitely be!




I went to a library sale a few weeks back and came home with many lovely finds! I was beyond thrilled to find this many books for only a few dollars out of my pocket. (I love library sales.) So my bookshelves are as full as ever. In fact, I'm in dire need for another one! A happy problem to have. :D




Seeing this headline just made me smile. So very, very true! Wouldn't you agree? :)




Now this book. This book.........totally deserves it's own post. I hope to get to that soon. I will simply say this for now: READ IT! You won't be sorry you did.




Obviously I love to read. So it also stands to reason that I love quotes, right? And bookish, library quotes? Even better. This particular one made me smile for hours after I read it.




I visited a small aquarium with my nieces and nephews recently. When I saw this guy, surely you can guess who I thought of, right? Yes! Nemo! And I even remembered that he (she?) is a clown fish! Thank goodness for Disney movies, huh? ;)




A beautiful bouquet from a friend to welcome me back home again. I love daisies.




Libraries should always be loved!




Another friend sent me this picture and it pretty well sums up my life. Who wants to clean when you can read?!

  3. I love the library quote from the book. :) Libraries are one of the best places to be.
    Musgrove! It's been so long since I've read Persuasion; I'll have to reread it soon. The summer is in and I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done.
