//16. how to love pride and prejudice //


//

My mom reads Pride and Prejudice literally every year. I'm not kidding. She has read that book more than anyone I know and, I dare say, more than anyone you know, too! Each time she reads it she enjoys it more and more.  She still laughs at the funny parts. She still stays up late reading, just dying to find out what happens next. She still cries when she gets to the end. 


A love for P&P isn't just something she's passed on to me, it' something she has taught our entire family. My older brother, sister, and I have all read the book multiple times. And my little brother and dad, if they haven't read it, at least love the movie version

Not this movie version. 


Keira Knightley just needs to go away.

Ah...that's better. 




Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, the perfect Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. But I digress....

The first time we watched this 6 part A&E mini series I was probably around 12 years old. My cousin brought the movies with her when she came to stay with us that summer. We watched one episode one day, the second episode the next day, and then episodes 3-6 the third day! Because when it gets good, you just can't stop. I thought it was pretty cool that my mom let us watch that many episodes in a row. Now it's a family tradition to bring the P&P movies to the summer trip to the cabin. Everyone, even my 19-year-old kid brother, looks forward to watching them.

  4. The families those adopt these dogs have my full respect. I was reading stories online regarding a family that adopted a pair of dogs, one was blind and the other was his buddy who used to guide him through the ways. The reason why the family adopted both of them was because of the bond these two dogs had with each other.
