Mirror, mirror on the wall, I am my mother after all.

My mother used to purchase books for peoples' birthdays, and as a kid I thought that was super boring.  Well, what do you suppose I got myself with birthday money(from my mom)?  Books! 

Yes, I admit it.  I am officially a book nerd.  You know you are addicted when your husband says to you, "Maybe you should stop reading so much and do something else."

I love Little Women and Anne of Green Gables and for some reason, holding a well-loved copy and reading snippets from them makes me happy.
 I also treated myself to Writing Picture Books by Ann Whitford Paul to inspire me in my attempt to write a children's picture book.
