This week, I have the pleasure of being a guest on Stephanie's Written Word, where I wrote a post about my experiences taking a class on Jane Austen...in England...with my husband... Note the picture of us playing croquet on the university lawn. (Yes, I was a dozen years younger then--sigh--and thinner, too. :-) This is the "nice" photo, by the way. We were behaving ourselves and attempting to look very proper. I also have another one--locked deep in our family photo album--of me holding the croquet mallet, the bottom of it poised only inches from striking the top of my dear hubby's head--LOL!
We had a great visit. There's nothing like a shared reading of Pride & Prejudice or Persuasion, followed by a rousing group discussion over trifle, to bond two English lit geeks. But the best part was that we've also had years of laughs and a treasure box of memories thanks to that trip. Writing about it was a pleasant stroll back in time to where one of my favorite Austen adventures took place.
I'll be giving away 3 signed copies of According to Jane to commenters on that post so, if you're interested, please feel free to stop by. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
