  3. I echo "Library book sales = happiness." I went to my library's sale last week, and came home squealing like a little kid because I found a hardback collection of about 6 Sherlock Holmes stories for $1. I've never read his books, or owned them, so I was and still am pretty excited about it. :D

    1. Oh wow! That was definitely an awesome find, Joanna! I completely understand why you're so excited. I would be too! That's what I love about library sales. You can find the neatest treasures for the cheapest prices! I just went to one the other weekend and came out with lots of happiness. :)

    1. Thank you, Naomi! And you know? I'm not even sure what book it's from. I stumbled across the quote somewhere and loved it immediately. Just did a google search and it said that it's from Anne of Green Gables. Sounds like I need to do a reread of that book so I can find it! :)

  7. It's like you've read my mind - or I've read yours ! Kara, I like how your posts are so real, honest and relatable - not a word but hey. I've put together a post similar to this - if you're interested in reading it :) (http://revesbleus.blogspot.ca/2014/09/dear-self.html)

    Libraries - They make the world a better place!

    Poetry, silliness, joy, road trips and being crazy - high five!

    Pinterest - seriously, so many of its pins are hysterical. It can brighten a day indeed.

    Free wifi and food - but of course!

    Thoughts - they never shut up for me either.

    Words - yes.

    Live - such a beautiful word.
