A is for Anglophile

A more introverted culture? Sarcastic humor? Rainy days? Beautiful scenery? Why yes, sign me up to live across the pond. After discovering over half of my DNA comes from Britain, it only makes sense my heart would long to be there.

B is for Bookish

Do I need to expand on this? This is a book blog after all. 😀

C is for Chocolate

Give me all of the chocolate. Need I say more?

D is for Dignity

E is for Empathy

opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge... || bill bullard

One of the many reasons I love reading is simply to learn from another’s experiences. I love walking in other people’s shoes and understanding what life might be like in another person’s mind or body. I wish the world had more empathy. If more people considered things from another’s perspective, everyone would be better off.

F is for Faith


Everything in my life centers around my Faith in God. It’s the most important word on this list because of its weight in my life.

G is for Golden, Colorado

Golden, Colorado is one of my favorite places in the state. Each visit is never long enough.

H is for Harry Potter

These books gave me friends forever. They took me away from life and were with me when I wasn’t an avid reader. They taught me valuable lessons and made me a better person.

I is for Integrity

J is for Jumpy

My high sensitivity makes me extra jumpy when random loud sounds happen. I am Kramer. 😉

K is for Kindle

Image result for kindle gif

I used to be anti-e-readers because I was worried they would make people read less. I am happy to say I was proven wrong. Kindles have made reading more accessible for so many people and I can’t imagine not living with one again!

L is for London

Image result for london

If I can just make it to London someday, I will die happy.

M is for Marrow

Ready to Meet Margo?  Marrow by Tarryn Fisher

Marrow is my favorite book of all time. Margo fights for the weak and Tarryn Fisher sees the broken.

N is for Nature

Nothing is more refreshing to me than good weather and beautiful scenery. I love being outdoors, even when it’s raining.

O is for Old Soul

I believe I know someone like this. I haven't spoken to him in years...but this makes me think of him.

Like Benjamin Button, I was born old, except my old nature is on the inside. I’ve never felt like I’ve been able to fit in with my generation and often prefer the company of older people. Maybe that’s why my husband is 12 years old than I am.

P is for Passionate

Image result for passionate

Passion is contagious. I love to see people fighting for things they believe in, whether I’m passionate about those things or not. Passion is what makes life worth living.

Q is for Queen Elizabeth

Image result for queen elizabeth ii

My Anglophilia knows no bounds. I just love Queen Elizabeth – I think she’s the picture of class and elegance. I look forward to her Christmas messages and enjoy replaying ones from years past each December.

R is for Red Thread

Soulmate And Love Quotes: Soulmate  Quotes :    QUOTATION  Image :    Quotes Of the day   Descriptio

In Tarryn Fisher’s book, Mud Vein, she talks about the red thread that connects us to other people – kindred spirits, if you will. That idea resonated with me on a deep level and since then I’ve discovered a few red threads of my own. These people will forever sit high on the shelves of my heart.

S is for Solitude

Thoreau found contentment in solitude in nature when he spent over two years living alone in a shack by Walden Pond.

Introverts enjoy their solitude. That's where the energy thrives for them. Be sure to add me on snapchat, my username is @sylvestermcnutt

I love people, but I really, really love being alone. I like doing most things alone, without the interference of anyone else’s opinions. Being able to think unimpeded allows me to be my truest self.

T is for Truth

“Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

Since becoming an adult, I’ve realized just how hard the truth is to come by. People will often tell you what you want to hear and say another thing behind your back. I respect people who are honest, even when the truth hurts, above all else. I like to know where I stand and who I can trust.

U is for Uninhibited

adjective: expressing one’s feelings or thoughts unselfconsciously and without restraint.

My goal this year has been to uninhibited in being myself. I want to be 100% authentic all of the time, whether people like who I am or not. I think I’ve already achieved this goal in the first three months of this year because I’ve noticed some people distancing themselves and others drawing closer to me. This is something that would have crippled me years ago, but now it simply fuels my confidence.

V is for Verity

Image result for verity colleen hoover

It was the first V-word to come to mind. I’m still hung up on this book months after reading it.

W is for Womanhood

Image result for womanhood

I’m not a feminist by any means but that doesn’t mean I’m not proud to be a woman. We create the future of society through nurturing our children. It’s a huge responsibility and honor to be a woman.

X is for seXy 😉

And sexy is for Tom Hardy.

Y is for Yellow

Image result for yellow

Yellow is my daughter. The color of joy, sunshine, and light. When she was a baby, she was drawn to anything yellow and now when I see it I think of her as a cheerful infant.

Z is for Zany

adjective: amusingly unconventional and idiosyncratic.

I like the weird ones. 🙂


This is such a huge tag, I don’t want to make anyone specific feel obligated to do it. If you want to give it a go, please feel free!

      I think there are so many different definitions of feminists, we all can’t help but be one in some way or another. ❤
