Life Lately // Christmas Edition

I hope that all of you lovely readers had a wonderful Christmas! My family and I certainly did, and thankfully, my dad is off until the day after New Year's, so the holiday season isn't over for us just yet. :)

So I'm in the mood for blogging, but since I don't really have any good post ideas at the moment, I thought I'd just do a little "lately" post, in which I share some of the things I've been up to over Christmas vacation thus far. 🎄

  • Reading Advent devotionals. This has been so helpful with reminding myself of the true reason we celebrate Christmas. It can be all too easy to get wrapped up in the busyness of the season, and so I'm grateful in particular for an Advent devotional book my grandparents gave me called "Unwrapping the Names of Jesus" by Asheritah Ciuciu. It's been such an encouraging read, and has really helped me as I try to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus during this season. :)

A little illustrated quote I did the other day. :)
  • Rereading Little Women. Since this lovely book begins at Christmastime, I feel like it's perfect for this time of year! It reminds me of Christmas/winter, too, because I received it last year as a gift and read it for the first time. It's such a sweet story, and I'm really enjoying reading through it again! (I've actually been watching the 1994 adaptation of it lately while I draw, which has been nice.)

  • Drawing. I've had lots of time to draw over Christmas break so far, thankfully! I've worked on some bookmarks that I'm going to give as gifts, a few pieces for my Etsy shop, and a few sketches just for fun. Yesterday I finished a little colored pencil drawing of Jo March, and I really like how it turned out! It's so very satisfying to finish a piece that you drew in your own creative style. :)

Jo March is such a delightful heroine, isn't she? She's funny, ambitious, creative, and while a bit outspoken at times, very kind, loving, and caring. :)

  • College stuff. I found out a couple of weeks ago that I've been accepted into Regent University (the main school that I had been considering)! Once I pay the acceptance deposit, I'll officially be an enrolled student, which is so crazy and exciting. I'm planning on attending this coming fall, and I'm just so excited for this new adventure that God has in store for me!

  • Watching The Sound of Music. This is actually what I'm doing right now as I write this post! Oh, I just love this movie. The music, the cinematography, scenery, Julie Andrews as Maria...it's just wonderful. Even though it isn't really a Christmas film, it's feels like one to me because we watch it at this time of year. :)

Well, I suppose I'll end this now, so I can go make some hot chocolate and enjoy the rest of The Sound of Music! 

What have you done so far for your Christmas vacation? (If you're not on break for the holidays, just tell me what you've been up to!)
What did you get for Christmas? (Because I'm nosy and love knowing what gifts people got!)

Thanks for reading!

An Old-Fashioned Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve, dear readers! I just thought I would hop on here quickly and share some adorable vintage Christmas photographs from the 40s and 50s. Because who doesn't enjoy looking at cute, festive old pictures? :)


A glamorous gal stringing popcorn on a tree. Can I have her outfit, please? ;)


A cute family photo in front of a pretty Christmas tree, all decked out in tinsel.


This picture is actually from the film The Shop Around the Corner, starring Jimmy Stewart. It's a very cute movie that I would like to watch again sometime soon!


"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas..." 🎄


An adorable 1940s couple in matching Christmas sweaters! So, so cute.


Donna Reed (the actress who played Mary in It's A Wonderful Life) decorating a cute little Christmas tree.


Opening up presents on Christmas morning, 1950s-style!


A 1940s girl with her arms full of Christmas gifts.


And just for fun, here's a picture of a cute little vintage Christmas tote bag that my mom got for me last year. I just love it! :)

Well, I'm off now to go help out with wrapping some last-minute presents, so I'm going to go ahead and wrap up this short post (no pun intended there!). I hope you enjoyed this little collection of sweet festive photographs from the vintage eras. 

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas with your loved ones, celebrating the birth of our wonderful Savior!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

It's time for another tag post! Elanor from Musings of a Jane Austen Wannabe has tagged me with "The Christmas Tag," and it looks like it should be a ton of fun! (I mean, it's Christmas-themed; what's not to love?)

So, let's go ahead and get into it!

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Elf, White Christmas, A Christmas Story, It's A Wonderful Life, A Charlie Brown Christmas... to name a few!

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

I only remembering having a white Christmas once, which was about seven years ago. But other than that, snow on Christmas is very rare where I live, sadly! We typically don't get a lot of snow until January or February. (A couple of years ago, it was actually in the 70s on Christmas day--70-some degrees! How's that for some Christmassy weather?)


Where do you usually spend your holiday?

I spend Christmas day at home with my parents and siblings. We open gifts bright and early in the morning, eat a special breakfast, and then in the afternoon, my grandparents and aunt and uncle on my dad's side come over, and we exchange gifts with them. :)

What's your favorite Christmas song?

I have sooo many, though! I honestly can't choose just one...

I think I might cheat a little and tell you one of my favorite Christmas albums instead: the Charlie Brown Christmas album! Y'all, it is sooo good. It's such a nice, relaxing album to have playing in the background. I actually got in on vinyl for my birthday, and it sounds even better on a record player! :)


Do you open any gifts on Christmas Eve?

We used to go over to my great-granddad's house every year on Christmas Eve and open gifts with my dad's side of the family, but that tradition has changed a bit since he passed away last summer. We still do it, just not always on Christmas Eve. Last year we managed to get together at our house on the 24th, and this year we'll be hosting it again at our house a couple of days before Christmas Eve. I'm just glad we're still trying to carry it on, even if it's a little different! :)

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?

Let's see... Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, and of course, Rudolph. ;)

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

I'm really just looking forward to being off with my parents and siblings, going to family Christmas parties, exchanging gifts on Christmas morning, having movie marathons, eating delicious festive food.... I'm also looking forward to seeing The Last Jedi soon! My dad and I have jokingly referred to going to see the latest Star Wars movie in theaters as a "tradition," because this will be the third year in a row now that we've done so!

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Fake. The past couple of Christmases we've had a real tree, and while they do smell really good and the novelty of it is neat, a fake tree is easier, less messy, and more affordable in the long run. And I think our fake tree this year looks just as nice!


Here's our tree this year. :)

What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?


I'd have to say peppermint bark. I've baked it the past couple of Christmases, and it is soo delicious, if I do say so myself! It's a good thing it's a seasonal treat, because it's kind of addicting, haha.


I'm reallllly wanting some now!

Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?


I do really enjoy shopping for my friends and family, imagining their excitement (hopefully!) when they open their gifts. But then, who doesn't enjoy receiving gifts? I think I'm going to have to say both.

What is the best gift you've ever received?

Maybe either my vintage typewriter, record player, or acoustic guitar.

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

I would absolutely love to visit Disney World at Christmastime! The festive decorations are just gorgeous, and then there's all the Christmas music playing and special holiday shows...it would be a dream.


Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

It depends on what I'm wrapping. If it's a normal shape like a box, I'd like to think I do pretty well, but if it's some oddly shaped package--or a stuffed animal for my younger sisters--it's a whole nother story!

Most memorable holiday moment?


I can't think of any one Christmas moment that stands out in my memory. Instead, when I think back on previous Christmases, I just remember the excitement and coziness of Christmas morning, fun holiday parties with family, watching movies while drinking hot chocolate, and stuff like that. :)

What made you realize the truth about Santa?

I kind of just figured it out on my own. Apparently when I was about four years old, I started asking a ton of exasperating questions about how Santa could be real, to the point where my parents just had to tell me that he was fake. Haha. ;P

Do you make New Year's resolutions? Do you stick to them?

Not really. I've made them in the past, but after a short while I totally forget about them!

What makes the holidays special for you?

Just spending time with my family, celebrating Jesus' birth and enjoying all of the festivities of the season. There really is a "special kind of feeling in the air" during this time of year!


I hope y'all have enjoyed reading this Christmassy post! And just in case this is my last post before Christmas, I hope you all have a very merry Christmas with your friends and family, celebrating the birth of our wonderful Savior!

Christmassy Things


trimming the tree with Christmas records playing
cozy Christmas parties with family members you don't often see
the childlike giddiness you feel when you see your name on a present under the tree
making homemade gifts for your loved ones


watching all your family's favorite Christmas movies
driving through your neighborhood at night and seeing all of the festive decorations
sipping delicious hot chocolate on a chilly night
eating far more than is good for you ;P


bright white lights gleaming from the dark green branches of an evergreen tree
(or colored lights--whichever you prefer!)
waking up bright and early on December 25, opening gifts with Christmas tunes playing softly in the background


films like A Charlie Brown Christmas, White Christmas, It's A Wonderful Life, and The Sound of Music
candles shining in neighbors' windows and wreaths hanging on front doors
shopping for your family and friends
singing beautiful Christmas hymns like "The First Noel" at church


celebrating Jesus' birth in a manger all those many years ago
reflecting on His incredible, unfathomable love for us
thanking Christ for coming down to suffer and die for our sins
so that we could live in His perfect freedom, peace, and joy


Happy December, everyone!
Molly

My Thoughts on Persuasion by Jane Austen

Of Jane Austen's six major novels, there are two that it's taken me forever to finally get around to reading: Mansfield Park and Persuasion. This is probably due to the fact that I keep rereading Pride and Prejudice and Emma when I could be reading new books (can you blame me, though?), but anyways.... About a month ago, I finished reading Persuasion for the very first time, and oh my goodness you guys, it was amazing! I had already heard many good things about it, and I wasn't at all disappointed. I only wish that I had read it sooner!

So in order to give myself a chance to rave about this lovely novel for a bit, I thought I'd put together a quick post in which I share my thoughts on it! This isn't going to be a review or anything, because I'm too lazy for that, but rather just a list of what I liked about it and such. Sound good?

Also, there will likely be some spoilers ahead, so keep that in mind if you haven't read Persuasion yet!


Okay, first things first, let's talk about the main characters. I shall start with the heroine, Anne Elliot. At twenty-seven, she is the oldest of Jane Austen's heroines, and is therefore a bit more mature than some of the others. I have to say that I really, really like Anne! All throughout the book, she proves to be such a kind, caring sister and friend. She's wise, practical, very good-natured, but unfortunately, underappreciated by her family. I truly feel for Anne because of how unkindly her father and older sister treat her, but admire her all the more for the patience and kindness that she shows them anyways.

Next, of course, is Captain Wentworth. Despite the fact that he behaves rather resentfully towards Anne upon their first being reacquainted (I mean, I get that she really hurt him when she refused him eight years before, but still!), throughout the course of the novel he is shown to be very kind and gentlemanly. Not to mention the fact that he is a wonderful letter-writer! Which brings me to my next point...


THE LETTER! If you've read Persuasion, then you'll know that I'm talking about the letter in which Captain Wentworth tells Anne, in such beautiful language, that his love for her is as strong as ever. When I read this part in the book, I seriously had a huge grin on my face the entire time! It's just so sweet. Here's a little excerpt from it (you're welcome!):

"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan."

*swoon*


Overall, Persuasion is a wonderfully-written, heartwarming story about a beautiful, constant, and enduring love. Of course, one can't help wishing that Anne had never been persuaded into breaking off her engagement with Captain Wentworth eight years earlier, so that they could have avoided the resulting years of separation and pain. However, it just makes it all the more beautiful when Anne and Captain Wentworth finally end up together, and I think because of it they will treasure each other all the more.

If you've read Persuasion, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it! And if you haven't, I hope that this post has maybe convinced you to give it a read soon; it's truly a wonderful read, and I highly recommend it!

-Molly 

P.S. I know I'm a tad late, but I hope all of my fellow American readers had a happy Thanksgiving! :) Now it's officially acceptable to get into the Christmas spirit (although I must be honest: I've been listening to Christmas music for quite some time now!). I can't wait to start planning out some Christmassy posts to celebrate this wonderful time of year.

P.P.S. I just finished watching North and South (2004) for the first time, and overall I thought it was really good! Ever since then I've been listening to this song on repeat, literally; it's just beautiful. :)

The Book Lover Tag


Rachel has tagged me for "The Book Lover Tag," and I am quite excited to fill it out!

The rules are, of course, to answer the questions, have fun, and tag some other book-loving bloggers. Doesn't sound too difficult, so let's get into it, shall we?

1. If you could rewrite the ending to any book, what would it be?

I love Northanger Abbey, but I wouldn't at all mind if there was a sweet proposal scene between Catherine and Mr. Tilney at the end. Instead, it's just stated that they got engaged and were married, and we readers never actually get to experience it. 

But Northanger Abbey is still a five-star read for me, and the lack of a proposal scene really doesn't detract from the story. It would just be a very welcome addition! :)


The only thing I don't like about this copy I have of Northanger Abbey is that Mr. Tilney's name isn't on the cover. And yet, Captain Tilney's is?! Something isn't right. ;)

2. Which fictional character are you most like?

I feel like there are some similarities between Elinor Dashwood and me. I can be pretty sensible and practical when I want to be, and I suppose I also tend to mother-hen my younger siblings at times. ;) I'm definitely more of the quiet, reserved type like Elinor, too, especially when it comes to expressing my feelings. Plus, we both dabble in art. :) 


3. Do you have any signed books?

I've actually mentioned this on here before, but I have a signed copy of the "Meet Molly" American Girl book by Valerie Tripp. 


Here it is in all its glory. ;P

4. What's the best book you've read so far this year?

Not counting rereads (I've reread a lot of books this year!), I'm going to have to say Persuasion. It was AMAZING, and I absolutely loved it. I'm working on doing a post all about it soon, so keep an eye out for that!

5. Do you have any bookish pet peeves?

It kind of annoys me when I see someone reading a paperback book, and they have the book folded back on itself. Like, now the front cover is going to be all creased and won't lay flat!

6. Out of the books you've read this year, what has had your favourite cover?

I reread the entire Anne series over the spring and summer, and the editions I have all have such gorgeous covers (I did a post about them here). But I especially love the cover of Rilla of Ingleside, so I suppose I'll go with that one. :)


7. Is there a book that releases this year that you cannot wait to read?

Nope, I can't think of any.

8. What is your favourite non-fiction book?

I have this book called A Jane Austen Devotional, and it's amazing. For each section, the author takes a passage from one of Jane Austen's novels, and cleverly relates it to a lesson found in Scripture. I absolutely love this devotional book; I've already read through it twice, and I've gotten so much out of it that I'm currently reading it again! I definitely recommend it. :)


9. Do you have any favourite location and/or time period to have a book set in?

Regency-era England. And late-Victorian/Edwardian-era Prince Edward Island. Oh, and the 1940s as well. :)

10. Is there a book that reminds you of something else?

A lot of times a book will remind me of the time of year that I first read it in. For example, P&P makes me think of summertime, Little Women reminds me of winter, and the Anne books make me think of spring and summer.
Thanks so much for tagging me, Rachel! And now, as to who I'm going to tag...


...and anyone else who wishes to do this tag! Feel free to consider yourself tagged by me. :)

Ask Me Anything - My Answers!

'Tis time for the answers to the questions you all asked me on my "Ask Me Anything" post a couple of weeks ago! I'm just going to jump right into them, since this post will likely end up being a bit long anyways. :)

Rae Asks...

How many siblings do you have?

I have three wonderful siblings--one younger brother, and two little sisters. There is scarcely ever a dull moment in our house! ;P

What's your favourite season AND why?

Autumn/fall, for several reasons. The trees during this time of year are just gorgeous, all decked out in their various hues of red, yellow, and orange, and the weather (at least where I live) is wonderful--not too hot and not too cold! I also love being able to wear my sweaters and scarves (of which I have an abundance), sip hot chocolate in the evenings, and hear the leaves crunching beneath my shoes when I go for walks. Autumn just seems like such a festive, cozy time of year as well, what with Thanksgiving, and Christmas fast approaching. Plus, my birthday is in fall, so perhaps I'm a little biased towards this season. ;)


I took this picture last year on my birthday at--you guessed it!--Colonial Williamsburg.

What are some of your "hidden talents", the ones that people don't really notice but you have a gift for?

I'd like to think that I do a pretty good job at cooking and baking, and it's something that I don't think many people know about me. (Although I'm not sure that it involves much talent on my part; I mostly just follow other people's recipes!)

In your opinion, who is the handsomest period drama hero? (Ha. Ha. Easy, right?)

Oh, Rae, why must you ask me such a difficult question?! 

Alright, alright, I think I've decided...I'm going to have to go with Gilbert Blythe. Shocker, right? ;P
He's just so sweet, adorable, and very handsome, in my opinion.
Michaila Asks...

What is your all-time favorite Jane Austen book chapter?

What a fun question! Can I pick two instead of just one? I can? Well, thank you! ;) *pulls JA novels off bookshelf and starts flipping through them*

Okay, first is Vol. Three, Chapter 16 in Pride and Prejudice. This is where Mr. Darcy proposes to Lizzy for the second time, she accepts, and then they overcome all their former misunderstandings. I especially love this line from Mr. Darcy in this chapter:

"'You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged, but one word from you will silence me on this subject forever.'"

Oh, and I can't forget the part where he calls Lizzy "dearest, loveliest Elizabeth"! 


I've totally used this picture on my blog before, but it's so cute that it deserves to make another appearance. ;)

My other favorite would have to be Vol. Three, Chapter Thirteen of Emma, in which Mr. Knightley proposes! Oh, this is such a sweet chapter. Here are a couple of my favorite lines from it:

"'My dearest Emma,' said he, 'for dearest you will always be, whatever the event of this hour's conversation, my dearest, most beloved Emma--tell me at once. Say "No," if it is to be said.'--She could really say nothing.--'You are silent,' he cried, with great animation; 'absolutely silent! at present I ask no more.'"

"'I cannot make speeches, Emma:' he soon resumed; and in a tone of such sincere, decided, intelligible tenderness as was tolerably convincing.--'If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about more. But you know what I am.--You hear nothing but truth from me.--I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it.--Bear with the truths I would tell you now, dearest Emma, as well as you have borne with them.'"

Elanor Asks...

What's your favorite place in Disney World? 

Magic Kingdom, definitely! 

I took this photo on our most recent trip to Walt Disney World, in May of last year. :)
Who is your fashion icon?

Hmm... I can't really say that there's any one person whose style I keep up with. Instead, most of my style inspiration just comes from various fashion bloggers and, of course, Pinterest. :)

What's your favorite movie of all time?

My favorite movie of all time?! I don't know if I can choose just one, so I think I shall list my top three faves instead: Emma 2009, P&P 1995, Anne of Green Gables. (Okay, technically those are mini-series, but oh well!)

What is your greatest strength?

I'd like to think that I'm good at sticking with something once I set my mind to it, in most cases. ;) I'm also not a huge procrastinator; if there's something that needs to get done, I like to work on it as soon as I can, or else it hangs over my head. (Unless we're talking about schoolwork; then I can tend to be a very good procrastinator!)

Are you more of a country girl or a city girl?

I am definitely more of a country girl! I think I would choose a nice house surrounded by trees and fields over an apartment in a big city any day. I do enjoy visiting large, bustling cities for the sightseeing and shopping, but I wouldn't want to live in one. I realized this all the more after visiting New York City; I had a wonderful time, but I was so glad to see trees and greenery once again on the way back home! 

Have you read all of Jane Austen's novels yet? Which is your favorite?

I have read all of her six major novels except for Mansfield Park, which I am currently reading for the first time. As for my favorite, I'm torn between P&P and Emma, because both are just so, so good!! However, I think I'm going to go with Emma this time. I'm just in an Emma sort of mood at the moment, after watching the first two episodes of the 2009 adaptation again last night. ;)

Also, while we're on the topic of Emma, I just feel like saying that Mr. Knightley has officially become my favorite Jane Austen hero! I've always been torn between him, Mr. Darcy, and Mr. Tilney, but after re-reading Emma earlier this year, he's definitely moved up to the top of my list. He's such a sweet, caring, honorable, funny character, and I love him.


MovieCritic Asks...

What is your favorite animal?

Okay, so I'm really not much of an animal person (does that make me sound heartless?), but I do rather like cats. My family has two (one of which is named Gilbert--can you guess as to whether or not I had a hand in choosing that name?), and they are both very sweet, although they do a pretty good job at getting on my nerves every now and then, too! ;P


Here's a cute picture of Gilbert from when he was a kitten, all sprawled out on my JA coloring book.
What is your favorite song?

I'm not sure I have one particular favorite song, but one that I really like is "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" from White Christmas. It's my favorite song (and scene) from the movie!



What song do you have stuck in your head right now? 

Now it's "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing!" Haha.

What is your favorite (Not Jane Austen) movie?

How about I shake things up a bit and tell you my favorite Disney movie? It's Tangled. :)

Drawing or writing?

Drawing, definitely. While I do enjoy writing, I don't love it nearly as much as I do drawing (and I don't believe I'm as good at it, either!). 

Here's a sketch I did the other day of Emma, based on this photo.  

Favorite Anne of Green Gables book?

Anne of the Island is probably my favorite of the bunch. I love reading about Anne's college experiences, and the ending is just perf. I also really, really love Rilla of Ingleside, and of course, Anne of Green Gables.

Favorite Bible verse?

I have so many, so I'll just give you one of them:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths." - Proverbs 3:5

I just love this verse. It's so encouraging, and an excellent reminder to rely on God's strength and wisdom instead of our own!

Rachel Asks...

What's your favourite Jane Austen movie?

When I've answered this question before on tags, I've always said Pride and Prejudice 1995, but now I think it's actually Emma 2009. It's just so bright and cheerful, what with the gorgeous costumes and the amazing soundtrack (which is sadly no longer on Spotify! *sobs*). I love Romola Garai's portrayal of Emma, and Jonny Lee Miller is awesome as Mr. Knightley.


I wonder how many times I'm going to use Emma 2009 in my answers before the end of this post... ;)

Where would you rather live, on a farm in the country or in a big house in England?

Probably a big house in England, because it would likely be surrounded by gorgeous countryside, anyways. More specifically, I'd like to live at Pemberley, or Hartfield, or somewhere like that. ;P

Who's your favourite actress?

I don't really keep up with any actors or actresses, so I wouldn't really say I have a favorite. However, I do like Megan Follows for her portrayal of Anne Shirley, and Romola Garai for her portrayal of Emma. I haven't seem them in anything else, though!

Who's your favourite actor?

Hmm... Let's go with Jimmy Stewart. He was such a great actor, in my opinion!



Favourite ice cream flavour?

Vanilla bean, preferably in an ice cream cone!

If you could travel back in time, where would you go?


Maybe the forties or fifties. Or the Regency era. Both would be pretty great (for a little while, that is; I think I'd probably start to miss some of the modern conveniences that we enjoy today!).

What's your favourite Period Drama couple? (pick at least five)

Oh, good, I can pick several! Let's see... (These are going to be in no particular order, and none of them will likely come as a surprise to you!)


Anne and Gilbert


Emma and Mr. Knightley


Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy


Catherine and Mr. Tilney


Jane and Mr. Bingley

Do you have any brothers and sisters? (If it is too personal, I understand)

I do, indeed! One younger brother, and two little sisters.

Favourite movie quote?


I've never really thought about this before! Hmm... I do love the quote below from Northanger Abbey 2007. It cracks me up every time!



Which country would you love to visit?

Canada, specifically Prince Edward Island.

Horse or donkey? (silly question, I know)



A horse, definitely. :)

If you could meet anyone, who would that be?


All of you lovely readers! Seriously though, that would be amazing.

Mr Darcy or Gilbert Blythe?

Wait, I have to choose between them?! Why, that's preposterous!

Ha, just kidding. Honestly, as much as I love Mr. Darcy, I think Gilbert Blythe is much more like the type of guy that I'd probably fall for. He's sweet, funny, smart, caring, thoughtful, hardworking...you get the picture!
Alright, that's all! If you've actually read all the way to the end of this post, thank you!!! I feel as though my answers were pretty repetitive, but I hope you've enjoyed this post nonetheless. :)
