"The emerging woman ... will be strong-minded, strong-hearted, strong-souled, and strong-bodied...strength and beauty must go together." Louisa May Alcott, An Old-Fashioned Girl

An Old- Fashioned Girl is on my list of "Top 20 Favourite Books". If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it. .

I've always had Old- Fashioned notions. I believe strength is beautiful. We are each strong in our own way. Find your unique strength, and own it. Find beauty in your strength. Be yourself to the fullest. Have a blessed day my lovelies! Xoxo

Little women is one of those reads that I remember fondly, 4 sisters: full of life, hopes and dreams, full of goodness. Of course! I love clever, ambitious, Jo!

QOTD: How many siblings do you have?
AOTD: I have two younger sisters🙋‍♀️🤷‍♀️

That time I got to visit Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts.

One of my childhood favorites. I think I read at least twice. It's time for another re-read, but only when Spring Break rolls around. °

I received a package in the mail recently, with several beautiful copies of New England Fine Living Magazine, courtesy of Linda Davis, creator and editor of the magazine! You can tell how much work is put into these... truly a labor of love, and I do hope she will publish more soon! I have been relishing every page of the magazine and was taken with this image and quote, thoughtfully placed on the back cover of the Fall- Holiday 2017 issue. Linda has a wonderful account here on Instagram, @newenglandfineliving, and a fabulous blog as well!💖 #newenglandfineliving #newenglandfinelivingmagazine #magazine #magazines #classicinteriordesign #timeless #classic #traditional #lindadavis #hollyholden #quote #quoteoftheday #wordstoliveby #louisamayalcott #fineliving #simplepleasures #alifewelllived

And the three o'clock sugar craving hit ..... These are Pear and Carrot Spiced Muffins - no refined sugar but still enough natural sugars (hopefully) to see me through the afternoon 😂. I Also got to scroll through Little Women while my little women were asleep 👏📓👍 ... Oh - swipe for recipe if you like the sound of them.

#throwback to when I read and enjoyed a book. I have been in a #readingslump for a while now and I'm at the point of frustration. I have 4 open books but I just can't seem to get through them.
How do you deal with reading slumps?

You guys, I sure enjoyed the Abigail Adams biography but it was super dense and took me forever to get through. On the heels of the John Adams mini series I figured I couldn't handle any more lengthy Adams biographies (Sam, JQ, Louisa). So Louisa May Alcott it is. And Seacrow Island alongside I Capture the Castle. It's looking like a good book year. #louisamayalcott #biography #seacrowisland #astridlindgren #kidlit #motherculture #charlottemason #books #illustration #library #booksof2018

"Don't drive me away, but hear what I say: bad men want the gold, they will steal it tonight; and you must take flight, so be quiet and busy and bold. Slip away with me, and you will see what a wise little thing am I. For the road I show, no man can know, since it's up in the pathless sky."

No quería perderme la oportunidad de leer “Mujercitas” aunque no quería leer una versión completa, encontré esta edición juvenil y reducida, un clásico al cuál no me hubiera acercado de no ser por el Club de Clásicos Juveniles. #clubclásicosjuveniles #clubclasicosjuveniles La historia está ambientada en la Guerra de Secesión de los Estados Unidos (1861 – 1865) y describe la vida y costumbres de la familia Mach, centrándose en sus 4 hijas: Meg, Jo, Beth y Amy. La novela es una fiel descripción de la época, en especial de los roles de género tradicionales establecido para las mujeres, que poco a poco se irían modificando con el transcurso de los tiempos. Las aspiraciones de vida, el amor, la amistad y los principios morales son elementos infaltables en novelas de “crecimiento”, en donde los protagonistas deberán afrontar el paso de la adolescencia a la vida adulta en circunstancias no siempre halagadoras.

La trama discurre entre la angustia de la guerra, carencias económicas, labores domésticas, enfermedades peligrosas, sueños literarios y corazones deseos de amar y ser amados, que diferentes unos de otros, nos brindan varias perspectivas de las mujeres de aquel entonces, y de las de ahora. No me resultó sencillo decidirme a leerlo, y al final, después de haber visto la película de 1978 inclusive, lamento no haberme decidido por la edición completa. Esta versión de “Libresa Ecuador” tiene pocas páginas, varias ilustraciones y entiendo que únicamente narra los hechos del Tomo o Libro I, es decir, hasta que Beth se recupera de la escarlatina y el padre regresa de la guerra. Me enteré de la segunda parte por la película y por varias reseñas.
