Have you met my friend? { Amanda }

{" '...books are always good company if you have the right sort. Let me pick some out for you.' 
And Mrs. Jo made a bee-line to the well-laden shelves, which were the joy of her heart, 
and the comfort of her life." -Louisa May Alcott } 

This is my friend Amanda, and you guys should be so lucky to have a friend like her. She is fiercely loyal, terrifically fun, (and may I mention--a chocolate-chip cookie queen), sincerely heartfelt and has the best laugh of.... all... time. 
If you could find Jo March reincarnated, it would be her. She writes stories of wild imaginings. She threatens to throttle the worst of human kind, she goes on adventures to big cities, she quietly observes, dives after her dreams, makes friends with uncertainty & chance, and sings at the top of her lungs. 

But better than any character, she is REAL

And today....twenty-seven years ago she was born.  

Can I get an AMEN?!

Today, if you can spare the time, (like--really, what are you going to do--watch another episode of Downton Abbey?)  you really should grab a cup of tea, and a tasty cookie-- and read all the back pages of her blog-life. She'd be totally embarrassed that I even suggested it---but really--she's a gem.
