Friday Favorites #57

Friday Favorites - Living Vintage - RED 3

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been mostly absent for the past two weeks.

I don’t really have a good reason why, other than saying that we’ve been busy and I’ve been feeling a little “blah”.

Thanks for sticking with me, you guys.

Never Judge a Book by its Cover [+ a Giveaway!]

One of my favorite books + a GIVEAWAY

Just look at this forlorn book.  I bought if for a whopping $1 recently.

The cover is old and frayed, but it still retains it’s lovely illustrations.

I handle the book as gently as I would a frail friend.

Most people passed by this book, noting it’s condition and age and rejected it.  However, when I saw it, my heart skipped a beat.

One of my favorite books + a GIVEAWAY

You see, I read Benedict and Nancy Freedman’s book, Mrs. Mike, when I was a teenager and it made a profound impact on my life, and when people ask me the name of my favorite book, this one always comes to mind.

I read the book for the first time as a teenager.    Since then, I’ve read the book several times over the years, and the story never gets old.    The book is an adventure, a love story, a portrait of the beauty and ferocity of nature, a saga about loss, enduring love, and hope.    This book is not all sweetness and light — but real life isn’t!! — and for that reason, I highly recommend it for any teenager or adult — in fact, while researching this post, I discovered that lesson plans exist!
