It is fun when you get to meet someone who you previously have only known through blogging. This happened this past July when we got to meet Karen and family from Blue Barn Bulletin.
Yesterday I unexpectedly received a box. The kids were so excited to see what it might be. I saw the return address - "It's from Karen!" She had mentioned to me that she had some books she thought I would enjoy, and that she would send them to me, but I had completely forgotten!
She sent me four books by Debra White Smith called the "The Jane Austen Series." They are modern re-tellings of some of Jane's most beloved works. I started the first one almost right away.
I am enjoying "First Impressions", and stayed up too late reading last night.
I had been looking for some light reading, and yesterday in the midst of my crazy and stressful life, a sweet and kind gift was dropped into my life!
