Parents.

How had it begun? Like everything: with mothers and fathers. Because of Lydia’s mother and father, because of her mother’s and father’s mothers and fathers.

Experiences.

I do not think, sir, you have any right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience.

~Jane Eyre by: Charlotte Bronte

Belonging.

They never discussed it, but both came to understand it as a promise: he would always make sure there was a place for her. She would always be able to say, Someone is coming. I am not alone.

Playbill Display.

ILOVEMUSICALS. We’ve been going to them for years, and there’s still so many I’m dying to see. Counting down to Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, and Frozen, which we’re going to see in the coming months!

I’m working on doing something fun with my playbills at my house, but in the meantime I decided to do an endcap featuring books about broadway musicals and the books musicals are based on. I’m OBSESSED. And only slightly want to take them all home with me. Alas, so many books so little time. But I will hopefully make it to them eventually. Until then, I will be loving them from afar.

In case you are also a showtune fiend…here are a few of my favorites as of late:

Ex-Wives (Six: The Musical)
Freeze Your Brain (The Heathers)
I Still Believe (Miss Saigon)
Wait For It (Hamilton)
Dancing Through Life (Wicked)
Bad Idea (Waitress)

Books.

Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.
