Hi friends! I hope your December has gotten off to a lovely start! Did you have a busy November? We did! It felt like a very full month! One of our highlights of the past month were taking a mini-trip to Massachusetts to see extended family for a long weekend!
Mr. Bingley and I traveled with my brother and we had lots of fun seeing a little bit of Boston and a fun day walking around the living museum of Old Sturbridge Village.
It was an awesome trip, despite the cold!!! 😉
When we weren’t busy traveling, working, or celebrating Thanksgiving and family birthdays, we’ve gone to the movies… a lot. We saw 4 movies this past month!
Have you seen any of these? Did you like them as much as we did? We truly thought all 4 were great, and we’d recommend/see again. For Justice League, I will say we went in with low expectations.
Want to know what Austenesque fun I’m getting into this month?
…here is what’s on this month’s

~ MY ANNUAL TRADITION! ~
Since 2013 I’ve made it a tradition to read an annotated edition of a Jane Austen novel during my Christmas break. I’m working my way through both the David Shapard editions and Harvard University Press editions. This year, my choice is Sense and Sensibility, and since I read Mr. Shapard’s annotations for The Annotated Northanger Abbey last year – I’ll be reading the Harvard University Press annotated edition this year. Which I”m really excited about because I really enjoyed the annotations by Ms. Spacks in Pride and Prejudice: An Annotated Edition.
