I'm Moving!

I'm moving to a brand new website and I couldn't be more excited!

You know what it's like to move to a new location; you get to decorate, add some color, and move things around until they're exactly the way you want them.

That's how it is on my new website, where you can leave comments, read my blog posts, and easily connect to my Facebook page, Twitter feed and Pinterest boards.

I hope you'll join me at my new home:

I'll have all my best things on display and you're welcome to visit often. See you there!

Clueless is 20? I'm totally buggin!

Clueless is one of my favorite Emma adaptations. It's hard to believe it's been twenty years since the movie came out (of course, I was verrrrry young at the time).


I still love to watch this movie; its mix of snappy dialog, satire and sweetness still hold up today. There's a new book that dishes on all the behind-the-scenes details, from creating the fashions (which were practically movie characters themselves), to finding the film locations, to coming up with those signature catch phrases.

As If! by Jen Chaney is available now on Amazon and wherever books are sold. Click here to find out more.

Welcome Princess Charlotte

(I thought I published this post back on May 6, but accidentally saved it as a draft, instead. I hate it when that happens.)

It's official. England's newest princess is named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Of course, that's the shortened version of her name. Officially, her name is registered as:

Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

Here's the document that registered her birth:

I love the way the "Occupation" field was completed for Will and Kate. And though it looks like the registrar completed the form (the handwriting seems to match), HRH Prince William signed the form in field 14. 

A new baby is always a blessed and thrilling event, but when the baby is a princess, too, it add a little extra touch of magic.

A Princess is Born!

I was traveling yesterday but managed to keep up with news about Britain's new princess. She looked like a little doll in her mother's arms.

Dad seemed pretty happy, too.

Now the big question is, what name will they give their new little princess? Odds are on Charlotte, which would go well with George . . . as the royal family demonstrated in the 18th Century.
