Were you a bookworm as a child? I, in a balanced way, (I hope!) certainly was. The current pages I read were practically a part of me. When my mother would tell me to go play outside, many a time I would grab the latest intrigue, climb a tree, and spend an hour in typed oblivion. [disclaimer : I did truly play very often! 🙂 ] Something about a life not my own, full of history and adventure I might never personally experience, was, and still is, captivating. I could know the life of a young queen in the 17th century, or make syrup with Laura Ingall’s grandmother, or realize that he definitely should not have asked the clerk why he worked late last Friday. I must say, I still feel this way! My life might be much busier, but when I can, I still adore curling up in a corner with an old favorite – or a new unknown.
On a different note: I, like many others, have been part of a lovely world called Pinterest since this spring. It can definitely be a time waster, but mostly, I find many neat ideas I that never entered my mind! I thought a few of you might enjoy these hair-bow tutorials that have been rather popular lately.
Also, here’s a video tutorial! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWxgxVAqg3A&feature=player_embedded
On another completely different note: I make lip balm with beeswax from my dad’s beehives. I’m getting ready for a craft fair this Satuday, and am very excited with how my booth will look! I’ll probably post pictures this weekend.
Did you have a favorite book when you were a child? How about now? Was there a sacred place meant only for you and those curled pages? Or did you care less when it came to books or reading?

One of my favorite (and least favorite) things to do when getting dressed up is style my hair. That perfect french twist can do wonders for a girl’s self-esteem! Your hairstyle for the big day should reflect your personality. It’s all about being comfortable, feeling amazing, and staying true to your sense of style. Some brides want their hair up, others down, some in a half-updo, or braids, or…(You get the picture. Everyone has their own style!)It’s your big day, and if you just want a pretty french braid to show off your locks, go for it!

So, what’s your favorite style? I am personally an up-do kind of girl, but my sister wore her beautiful hair down for her wedding. I’d love to hear how you wore yours for your wedding if you’ve already been married!
