Hi friends! I hope you have been enjoying a great 2019 so far! I’ve felt like it took me all month to get my act together! LOL! 😳 With holidays, family visits, and returning to work – I was perpetually behind on everything!
In January, we took the month off from traveling – not sure if it was intentional or unintentional. And instead enjoyed some fun activities and guests!
Our first guests were Mr. Bingley’s cousins who we met up with in NYC. 🗽
We enjoyed some extra time with them, and being able to take them to our favorite places and have them meet our friends. 🤗
And our second guest is someone you may know – Author Elizabeth Adams!!! Elizabeth was coincidentally visiting our area and we were thrilled to have her stay with us!! 😊
It was such a treat to meet her in person and to be able to spend so much time together talking about all things – not just Jane Austen. 😉 Elizabeth is super fun and wonderful! (She is even lovelier than I expected!)
Her visit to our area also finally brought Author Samantha Whitman and I together! 😃
Samantha moved to NC a few months back, but due to hurricanes and holidays we sadly did not get the chance to meet until now (I know, so shameful!!) I’m so, so, so glad we finally did! Samantha is absolutely lovely and we have a lot in common – not just Jane Austen and our fondness for our Mr. Bingleys! I hope we get to hang out together lots more! 🥰
Other than those lovely visits, Mr. Bingley and I enjoyed some weekend hikes and catching some sunsets!!
How is your 2019 so far?
