Hello everyone, did you think that I had fallen off the face of the earth? LOL.. well at times I’ve wondered if indeed I have done just that. Yet.. here I am.
What many of you may not have realized is one week ago yesterday, WoM passed the one year mark. I wanted to do a special post on that day and sadly this business just got in the way. I have a new appreciation for all of you dear friends out there who have worked full-time jobs, taking care of their homes and families and then also doing all those things that go along with being the “woman of the house!” I’ve always had a busy life, yet adding a busy work schedule, on top of everything else has really been a challenge. A good challenge but a challenge all the same. I’m not there yet.. but I am pressing forward!
Though I have been very busy, getting myself settled into this new business and all its responsibilities, WoM and my beloved Mr. Thornton has not been too far from my thoughts. Along with my LONG list of “To Do’s” for work, I’ve also had an item on the list .. “Write post of WoM” I’ve been working on one but it is still in the works!
In belated celebration of our milestone here at WoM.. I wanted to share something with you all that is just fun. We all are busy trying to get things ready.. make things perfect for our families for the holidays. So I wanted to post something that would take you all away, just for a few minutes and maybe feed that desire for romance and fun. So here goes…
How many of you out there had the pleasure of following the Vlog on YouTube called “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” ? It is a modern retelling of the Jane Austin classic novel, Pride & Prejudice”. I have to say, it was pure brilliance! Clean, clever and full of fun! It took 100 -5 minute episodes to tell this story, starting in April of 2012 and finishing in March of this year.
Going to the website this evening, I discovered that the series won a prestigious Emmy award. Not at all a surprise. I am ecstatic that this wonderful production received such recognition. If you have not had the pleasure of watching this vlog/series production, I will include a link to the website as well as the first episode below.
For those of you who did have the pleasure of following this fun story, I wanted to be sure that you all knew about the newest production. It is called ‘Emma Approved’. It doesn’t take rocket science to understand that this new production will follow and modernize the Jane Austen classic story of Emma. I’m looking forward to watching this story unfold with the same clever modern twists and play on words.
*Series can also be watched via the website: ‘Emma Approved’.
The series is well on it’s way with 19 episodes already posted on Youtube. (the 20th due to be released tomorrow, Thursday, Dec 12th) I hope you will all take a few minutes to follow this wonderful production. You won’t be disappointed.
And for those of you who have not yet seen ‘The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’, shame on you! LOL Just kidding! I have posted the first episode of that series as well. I will warn you .. it’s addictive and since all videos are available and posted on both the website and YouTube, you might want to make yourself a sandwich and a nice cup of hot tea.. cause you will be there for awhile!
Be sure to leave a comment with what you think about ‘Emma Approved’ and/or ‘The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’. I would love to chat with you all about it. Tell me what you found to be the most clever twist on the original story. What were your favorite moments. What did you think were the funniest? *I will post my favorite episode in the comment section soon!
And here’s to hoping that one day they might consider a industrial classic by an author name E. Gaskell!
**And YEA!! The snowflakes are back!! I miss them and wished they would have continued through January last year.
