Happy July to all my Janeite friends! I hope summer has been treating you well! It has been nice and hot (and humid!) here in NC this past month, which means no more blogging from the back porch. 🙁 (Not good for the laptop…) But on the upside it is warm enough to swim in the ocean and we have enjoyed doing that a lot -rain or shine!
As you might guess, I love how dramatic and beautiful the sky and sea look when there is a storm coming! We also had a fun time this past weekend renting jetskis with a friend who came to visit! I love jetskiing!
We went along the Cape Fear River to look for the port where they filmed parts of Iron Man 3! We were very excited! It started to rain on us and as you can see there were some storm clouds out, but it was still a blast!
And in case you missed my fangirling on Facebook I’ll share it here. 🙂 Mr. Bingley recognized Laura Spencer from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries while we were out for dinner the other night. He sent me the text right after we sat down and I was in such a tizzy for our whole meal! I finally felt brave enough to approach her on our way out and she was so incredibly sweet and kind. She chatted with us a little bit and we told her we loved her in The LBD and Big Bang Theory! She said she is here working on a show, I think it might be Sleepy Hollow (yet another reason for me to start watching that show!)
Want to know what Austenesque fun I’m getting into this month?

~ Pride and Prejudice Variation Edition ~
Can you believe I have not read these two yet? These two ladies are amongst first authors to self-publish Pride and Prejudice variations, I had never heard of a “what-if” or “variation” until encountering Abigail’s Without Reserve in 2007. Which one do you want me to read this month? (Leave a comment to cast your vote!)
