Happy Chanukah! May the light continue to shine for you.
Happy 144th Birthday #Maud! Here’s how she celebrated her 15th birthday in my book: “On November 30, Maud celebrated her fifteenth birthday with Pensie, Mollie, and Lu, who came over to celebrate with cake and to stay overnight.” Cake and a sleepover with besties. Sounds pretty perfect...
My reading selection today, in honour of Louisa May Alcott’s Birthday. #littlewomen150 #amreading #womenswriting
The “Man if the Place” surprised me today with our very own #CharlieBrown Christmas tree. #holidayhappenings #christmastrees #peanuts
The “man of the place” surprised me with these beautiful tulips in November. Such joy on a very cold day. And, yes, I’m totally using a LIW reference to refer to my life partner. 😬😊❤️🙏 #gratitude #tulips #flowers #joy
Took part in a workshop last weekend with @xtineburrough where we chose a photo of an unnamed woman from the archives and matched it with a quote that resonated. @vcfaedu
Got to admit, kind of cool to see #Maud in the footnotes of  Benjamin Lefebvre’s new collection of L.M. Montgomery writings. @penguinteenca 🙏❤️😊
Catching up on some research this week by re-reading some of my women studies history texts. Look at Student Mel’s use of the highlighter and pencil! She was such a keener. #womenshistory #canadianhistory #feminism #amresearching #historicalfiction
My horse skirt and I are ready to chat about one of my favourite book boyfriends, Almanzo Wilder. #horses @dollfactorybydamzels #ssaww2018
Took a tour this morning to see some of the sites around Denver. Drove around the “foothills” and saw the Red Rocks amphitheater among other beautiful things. It definitely helps Centre the soul. ❤️🙏😊
Wonders of this conference! Met @vcfaedu alumni @xtineburrough whose work is here as part of the art exhibit. @vcfawcya #ssaww2018
After chairing a wonderful panel discussion this morning, I’m now part of the welcoming committee. #volunteerlife #academiclife #ssaww2018
