Hello! It’s time for another Blogmas Book Quote! Today I’m sharing a lovely little quote from LM Montgomery’s short story, A Christmas Inspiration.  It is one of the stories featured in A Vintage Christmas, and it has been one of my favorites from the entire collection that I’ve read so far.  It is such a sweet story about giving and thinking of others, especially about those who often feel forgotten, and it just warmed… Read More

Hello! It has been snowing so much the past few days.  Where I live, it has been transformed into a winter wonderland.  So, when I came across this little passage from Anne of Green Gables, it reminded me of how magical snow truly can be! Christmas morning broke on a beautiful white world. It had been a very mild December and people had looked forward to a green Christmas; but just enough snow fell softly… Read More
