Happily Happily Happily Ever ever… Now!
that song from Once Upon A Mattress is stuck in my head
From the mixed up desk of the
Queen of Tarts
Tartlandia, Far Far Away
So I decided to skip the frantic excuses and whining about how behind I am and how overwhelmed etc. etc ad adfinitum (hmmm spell check doesn’t know that word… neither do I really… It means lots, many many lots right? off to google- ha! Ad infinitum I was right!) Anyway… still super busy and not being a great blog mummy with my hectic summer schedule. I miss all ya’ll. I love to chat books! *wails*
But I do have an excuse to add to my reasons… *beams*
I met a boy. A guy. A man really…. I’m all twitterpated and giddy and so damn happy I could sing! Except it’s long distance. So that’s no fun. But we talk a lot and see each other as often as we can.
I met Bookstore Beau in a bookstore. 😉 I was visiting one of my sisters and we were doing our giggle look at books covet activity. I saw this cute guy sitting on the floor with architectural design books on his lap. We smiled at each other a few times cause I could tell our conversation amused him, my “I have this and this and I want this and do you want to borrow this series? I own them all, just haven’t read them yet…” etc. But I was hanging with my sister and well… I’d stopped looking for a guy, so while he was cute and all… I moved on to the next set of shelves. We ended up in the romance section (of course!) and Bookstore Beau found us, introduced himself and gave me his number saying he’d like to get to know me better. After he walked off my sister and I did the *Kermit flail* gahhh!
We’ve been getting to know each other for the last 6 months and I’m over the moon happy. He likes my retro fashion and my quirkiness. I adore his bent sense of humor, his analytical brain and how he treats me. He told me when he first saw me he was looking at an Atomic Ranch magazine and it was like I’d stepped off the pages. *swoon* On our first date he took me to two bookstores! Yep. *nods* He gets it.
Sooo *sings* “Please excuse this helpless daze I’m in… ” I’ll keep ya’ll posted on my romance with Bookstore Beau. I get to visit him (and my sister too!) this weekend. I’m off to pack.
