My Life as Laura: How I Searched for Laura Ingalls Wilder and Found Myself by Kelly Kathleen Ferguson p. 17-18

"I girded up my loins and stepped outside, half-expecting Willie Oleson to jump out and yell, 'Long-legged snipes!' but all I saw was the desk clerk of the Lake Pepin Inn glance up from her paper, blink once, and look right back down. I would learn this about Midwesterners: They might live in a town with a Subway, one gas station and an old barrel, but that doesn't mean they are easily impressed."

I loved this observation about Midwesterners and not only do I agree to it, I aspire to it (although I am not a Midwesterner either by birth or geography.) But pretty much no one at nay of the Laura Ingalls sites so much as bats an eye at Kelly's attire (the prairie dress).

Ohmygosh, I so have to read this. Ever since I read Little House on the Prairie books I've been fascinated with pioneers and one-room schools, and I thought Laura Ingles Wilder was so cool

Here is my teaser for this week:

Thanks and have a great week!

Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares, pg. 159

She thought of her friends. She felt a melting sensation in her muscles begetting a looser kind of sadness.
