    I love accents too – they’re always cool to hear on the period films! 😉

    Elizabeth Camden = TALENTED. That lady has a great style.

    Yay for paperbacks, I’m pretty much the biggest fan of the “old-fashioned” way of reading. 😉

    Thanks for mentioning BELLE. I plan to see that when it comes out, too. It sounds like an excellent read.

    Fun to see you mention Amber’s upcoming book; doesn’t it sound smashing? I’ve so enjoyed Amber’s sweet historical novels, so I’m certainly eager to read what she has next for us.

    …thank you SO much for the nomination! I appreciate it very much and am grateful to be among your list of blogs. 🙂

    Your comment on my blog truly touched me, Virgina – thank you for your kind words, and for the nomination! I posted about this award a while back (The Gift of a Sunflower), but as Rissi said, I’m honored to be included on this fabulous list. 🙂

    It was fun learning more about you through this post! I have a total sweet tooth, as well – and aren’t we all addicted to Pinterest? Haha. 😉

    AND, huge thanks for mentioning my next book release! How sweet is that? (*Waving to Rissi, as well, for her sweet comment!*) I’m thrilled to hear you like the cover and the premise of the story. I’m having a blast writing it so far, and I think I’ve settled on November 18th for the official release. 🙂 Can’t wait!

    Thank you again!
