|From the official Green Gables house|
While Nate's cousins were staying with us last weekend I roped them into giving me a free interior design consultation. Melissa has great taste and Ali actually is an interior designer and helped their grandparents with their beautiful re-do a few years ago. I realized my ideal style is half Green Gables, half Toby and Sue, which is apparently not a real style since when I googled it three of MY pictures from MY blog showed up. Which leads me to ask why am I the only one talking about Toby and Sue on the internet?
I have been reading the entire Anne of Green Gables series since Magnolia was born. It has given me more than interior design inspiration and era-envy. (That is a thing.) It has made me be more friendly with my neighbors and clean my house better, and not that I really needed the reminder but I also take the time to enjoy the glory of trees and flowers and storms and other nature things that I already love. I borrowed the 8 books from a neighbor, and I have one left; when I finish it I will return it with a pound cake, because I think that's what Anne would do.
