Happy May, everyone!  I hope it's been a lovely spring for you all so far.  It's been awhile since I last did a currently post, so I thought it'd be fun to share some recent favorites...

currently listening to...Brand New by Ben Rector

currently reading...Their Wedding Journey by William Dean Howells. He was friends with Henry James and Mark Twain...nuff said.

currently royal watching...SO much fun stuff from the Royal Family lately...the Duchess of Cambridge's gorgeous wardrobe from her India trip...Prince George meeting the Obamas in his jammies...and now the photos of Princess

currently cupcake dreaming...they've got a cupcake ATM coming to Disney Springs. Yes, you read that right.  A cupcake ATM.  How cool will that be?

currently Star Wars dreaming...have you seen the new Rogue One trailer with Felicity Jones Catherine Morland? Can't wait!

currently trip planning...because I'm going to England and Ireland with my cousin Becky this summer!!  We'll be seeing the Taming of the Shrew at the GLOBE, visiting the Lake District, and so much more.  I'm basically absurdly excited.

currently booktubing...there are lots of new bookish videos on my YouTube channel including...

25 Bookish Facts about Me (such a fun tag!)

Classics Haul with Penguin English Library editions and, of course, Jane Austen.

speaking of Jane Austen...

Last month I went to a Jane Austen Day event hosted by JASNA celebrating the novel Emma with scholarly talks and a Jane Austen marketplace. I met up with my friend Kate from booktube - it was so much fun!

still speaking of Jane Austen...there's a new adaptation of one of my favorite and one of the most under-rated Jane Austen works, the short novel Lady Susan, that looks like it's going to be really fun.  For no discernible reason (unless to confuse Jane Austen fans) they renamed it Love and Friendship (which is the name of one of Jane Austen's very early works that is not at all related to Lady Susan). ANYway, here's the trailer.  Fingers crossed it'll be good.

some fun new Disney videos...

I posted an updated version of the "What's in my Disney Bag" video this spring.

Also had so much fun making a "Top 5 Disney Secrets" video with Athos...we're planning to do one for each of the parks!

Other recent pixie dust...

Epcot Flower & Garden Festival
