It is 1814 (many events from Pride and Prejudice never took place) and for several years Mr. Darcy has lived in seclusion, away from his family and home and desperately hoping no one recognizes him as Mr. Darcy of Pemberley…

In an effort to dispel his loneliness and at the same time help out a friend very much in need, Mr. Darcy agrees to travel to Hertfordshire and assist Mr. Bingley, who is leasing an estate for the very first time. Since the scandal was years ago and Meryton is a small village, Mr. Darcy feels it might be not so dangerous for him to rejoin society in this setting.

Hi friends! Do you know what happened to April?!? I swear, it was just getting started…did we only do half of April this year??? Oh boy, I hope May doesn’t do the same and go by in a blur! I love May because it is the start of warmer beach weather and I usually start going to the beach around this time. (Although now with Mr. Bingley’s truck we have been going to the beach whenever…even in January and February.)

Have I told you he named his truck Ernie?  Can you guess why? 😉

At first all I thought we did in April was catch-up on work after our England and Ireland trip and prepare for my studio’s student recitals (which were this past Saturday!) Continue reading »
