Happy Easter from That Artsy Reader Girl!

Posted April 8, 2012 by Jana in Personal / 3 Comments

Hi! What are you up to today? Happy Easter to you and your family! I had a little too much fun at JibJab and made a video of my family and I dancing the Jive! Sadly, I can’t embed this, so a screenshot will have to do. From left to right we have my cat Misty, my mom, me, and my little sister. They all wish you a happy Easter as well! One of the many reasons I love Easter is because Spring is SO close! Are you excited for spring? I know I can’t wait to read outside in the sun! Have a wonderful Sunday! (And if you celebrate, what are you doing? After church, we’re having a big dinner and then watching movies as a family.)

Merry Christmas to You!

I Elf’d myself!

Merry Christmas, guys! Or, Christmas Eve, I guess. Thanks so much to all of my readers, fellow blogger friends, and author friends! My blog is still a baby, at barely a month old, but I have already met so many amazing people! The book blogging community truly is one of the best networks out there. Thanks so much to all of you for welcoming me and being so supportive!

This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the snow, the lights, the yummy treats baking in the oven, the music, the special holiday movies, and the BOOKS! I love reading a good Christmas book. I hope you’ve enjoyed my month of Christmas reads. Sadly, I did not have as much time to read as I had hoped. My kidney stone took out 10 days of the month. I can’t possibly read under those conditions! BUT, I was blessed to be well in time for Christmas. Tomorrow will be a busy day filled with family, food, and the spirit of giving, so I’m posting my merry Christmas today! I’ll post later about the bookish presents I receive, but I wanted to stop in and see what you’re up to! What do you hope Santa brings? What are you giving to your loved ones? If you’re here, and it’s now Christmas Day, what did you get? To set the mood, here’s a bunch of fun bookish Christmas trees that I absolutely love. Enjoy the day, everyone, and best wishes for the coming year. :)
