Old Friends –

Packing today! Did I tell you we’re moving? Like… in a few weeks. I’m excited for the move, but not so much for the job of packing. Today I packed up all my books, most of which have been sitting cozy in my bookcase for many a year. In fact, I didn’t even realize I had so many books until I pulled them all out and tried to fit them into one box.


And then I found this: IMG_0030e1That’s an old copy of Little Women. I love it. Old books are the best.IMG_0035e1IMG_0031e1I’ve read this one more times than I really know; it was my childhood favorite. Brings back memories… like reuniting with old friends.

What was your favorite childhood book?

    No, I’m not stalking you, just leaving comments on two blogs because after almost a year I feel like doing that. =) Just had the idea of visiting AHFS and then came across this link, and well, here I am. Love your pictures. =) Anne of Green Gables… I think I liked her because I got told we were similar, which made me feel rather cool. =) And also (and I know that’s a controversial thing to say for a Christian, but I’ll say it anyway), Harry Potter. I’d also devour almost anything by Tolkien or C.S. Lewis and a bunch of non-English writers you probably wouldn’t know. =)

    • haha no worries. I will gladly accept two comments from you any day(: I love Anne, too. And Tolkien is a good, classic author as well. I’ve actually never read the Harry Potter books, but I have seen the movies… and it is a controversial topic to be sure. lol

    Favorite childhood book….oh, so hard to choose. I loved so many of them – Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, and The Ever After Bird were some of my favorites.
    From what I can see of your pile of beautifully-photographed books, we like a lot of the same literature. I couldn’t see a book there that I don’t like. 🙂
    (Not to make this comment a mile long or anything, but I haven’t forgotten about your Anne books, it’s just taking me a little longer to collect them all than I thought it would – but it’s an adventure! I love hunting for books!)

    • Anne was definitely a close second in my childhood favorites! And the Little House series… that stack of books in the case on the bottom right hand side of the top photo is the whole series (a very well worn series. I’ve read them over and over). Did you ever read The Secret Garden? I liked that one.
      And don’t worry about rushing, my dear. I half expected you to be joking when you first said you’d send them to me anyway. lol You’re too sweet(:

        Well, now you know I take my books very seriously (:
        I loved The Secret Garden. Yes, that was another one of my favorites. Dicken was a pretty incredible character. I went to a see a one-night-performance musical of it on the beach last summer, and it was just gorgeous. A huge flower company decorated this huge area with all these flowers and vines and the audience sat inbetween all the plants… it was like being in a dream. I wish you could’ve seen it.

      • Oh goodness, that sounds perfect! I’m jealous now… I think I would love to do a photo shoot like that one day. All the flowers and such… dreamy. Ahh… I love it. 🙂
