Hello all! Welcome to my corner of the Internet! I had a spectacular introduction cooked up, but it seems all my plans have abandoned me at my utmost time of need.
So. We shall see what my completely confuzzled cranium decides to create.
Firstly, my name is Mary. I've been exploring the blogging world for quite some time now (almost a year), reading all my friends' delightful blogs and bombarding their comments sections with nonsense. I finally buckled down and started my own blog, Sunshine and Scribblings!
Here are some random tidbits about me because you obviously are dying to know more about this wonderful person, aren't you? :)
~ I am obsessed with Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. (The only real Elves are those from Middle-earth.)
~ I'm still checking my closet for Narnia. (You never know when you might discover it!)
~ I live and breathe books. They are necessary for survival. *nods*
~ I love the cold, and winter is my favorite season. (Although autumn is an equally delightful time of year.)
~ Writing is in my blood. I fancy myself to be a writer and am hoping to use this blog as a place to strengthen my writing skills and connect with other writers.
~ I have a fairly odd obsession with umbrellas. (I mean, c'mon. They're just plain awesome! Besides, they're also called bumbershoots, which is such a fun name.)
~ I also have an obsession with Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean, and you will find me quoting them on a daily basis, savvy?
~ Gingerbread is the best cookie ever. End of discussion.
~ I desire to learn Elvish and archery. (Do I even need to explain this one?)
~ I play the violin.
~ I love classics, especially Pride and Prejudice. (Also, Jane Austen novels are beautimous things <3)
~ I firmly believe in happily ever afters.
~ I listen to Christmas music in the summer.
~ I have a severe case of wanderlust.
~ Antique stores and bookstores are my downfall. Seriously, they do significant damage to my pocketbook.
~ I would love to visit the '50s.
~ I am a terrible multi-tasker, unfortunately. I can't even listen to music while I write.
~ Disney movies are the answer to anything.
~ I'm a neat freak and germaphobe. (Germs are serial killers, I swear.)
~ Cookies solve any and all problems.
~ I'm an introvert whose idea of a good time is snuggling beneath blankets with a cup of cocoa and a book.
~ I love all the arts, if you couldn't already tell. Music and art fuel my passion.
~ Most importantly, I am a child of the King of kings. Jesus is my Savior and the reason I live.
Well, I think I've bored you long enough. Thanks so very much for stopping by! I look forward to partaking in this adventure called Life with all you lovely people! ^_^
