Hello all you lovely Janeite friends!  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have you in my life. 🙂

I ended up being so busy in April that I didn’t have as much time as I’d like to spend reading and blogging, and let me tell you I missed it bad.  Real bad.  It definitely showed me how much blogging and connecting with other Jane Austen/Austenesque lovers means to me!  I’m glad it is now May and I don’t have as much keeping me busy at the moment!

But what was I busy with in April you ask?

Well, we went on a trip to Southern California and it was amazing!!!  Completely amazing!  There is so much to do there and each day we got into something completely different!  And as always, I thought it might be fun to share our photos with you! 😉

In San Diego we spent some time visiting seals, riding horses and Segways, and feeding giraffes and rhinos!

Happy April, friends!  I can’t tell you how happy I am this month is here!  And because you know I love me some lists, I’m listing the reasons why below!!!

1. Our BIG Studio Recital Series is DONE!  Some of you may remember that my day job is running a music lesson studio and teaching private lessons.  Well, on April 1st we  had our annual recital day.  In the past years we’ve done 3 recitals in the same day.  Now, the studio has grown so much that we ended up needing to do 4 recitals in one day!!! I was worried that it would be too strenuous a day for us teachers, but we made it through and everything went super smooth!  4 recitals and nearly 100 students!  (But now we can all relax a little since the BIG event is behind us!)

2. We are going on another adventure!!!  YAY!  Spring Break starts here next week and Mr. Bingley and I are super excited to pack our bags and go explore Southern California! 😉  (My first time in the state and Mr. Bingley’s first time seeing some sights, since he’s only gone to CA for conventions and meetings!) We are flying into Los Angeles and driving down to San Diego and then back to LA!  But along the way we will be doing some awesome activities and meeting with some very special friends!  Cannot wait!!!

Hello Austenesque Friends!

I hope you are doing well!  Did you have a lovely February?  My February felt too busy and too fast!  Between my music studio growing and keeping my days filled and Mr. Bingley traveling a lot of the weekends, we felt like the month was a bit of a blur!

Although while Mr. Bingley was out of town, I did get enjoy some great reading time.  So I guess that is a good achievement for the month. 🙂

Also….we got new couches!!!  And all we want to do is sit in them, recline in them, and cuddle!!!

Even more than before, we’ve become obsessed with staying home!! 😉 Total hobbit mode!

How about you?   What has been keeping you busy? 🙂
