Welcome to My Journey Rereading Gone With the Wind

Today is the day I start my journey of rereading Gone With the Wind. The first time I read the book was the winter after I graduated college. I think it took me two months to read it cover to cover. But I was a fan long before that. I was a has cGone With the Wind goner from the first time I saw Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) standing at the bottom of the Twelve Oaks stairs the day of the barbeque. In some ways I think my love of Rhett Butler is a reason why I am still single. He has given me a false reality. I’m looking for a man with the perfect mix of pure southern gentleman and bad boy, just like Rhett. Thank you for coming on my journey with me. It might get a little bumpy along the way but it will be fun.

Catching Up

I know I having been posting much lately. I have been a busy woman: between traveling (Cumberland Falls for New Year’s and Gatlinburg or my Birthday), family functions, work, kids, and planning my next Disney Trip. But I am going to start making time for me and my blog again. So first lets play catch up.

Travel

As I mentioned briefly we spent New Year’s in Cumberland Falls and mine and my mom’s birthday in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. I really missed the mountains and it was really good to get back to them. I hope we can get there a little more this year than we did last year. I love that mountain air. My next Disney Trip is just around the corner so I am looking forward to that right now.

Reading

I started a new series while I was in the mountains; Smoky Mountains Matches by Karen Kirst. I have only read the first book but I really enjoyed it. I still need to finish the Dare Island Series and now get into this series more. But first I am going to reread Gone With the Wind. My journey begins Wednesday.

Kids

The kids and their mommy went to Cumberland Falls with us but not Gatlinburg. I love spending time with them but one weekend in a months time is okay, I really can not handle two weeks in one month. I pretty much pick the two younger ones up at day care every Tuesday, so we are getting some quality Auntie Time in.

I guess that is about all.
