I love coming home to this surly face! #wednesdaywithernest

Ernest spends his day reading short stories by his literary namesake. #ernesthemingway #reader #thebookhog #harrypotterglasses
"And that’s when he finally tells me his name is Ernest. I’m thinking of giving it away, though. Ernest is so dull, and Hemingway? Who wants a Hemingway?" #pariswife #paulamclain #literaryhog
"Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it." #veronicaroth #divergent | Have you seen the Divergent movie!? So good! As a YA book fan, I love the story and was so happy with its translation into film version. Read the book and watch the movie! #divergentmovie @divergent #yabooks #thebookhog
A year ago today, Ernest Hedgingway came into my life. So grateful for his gentle spirit and ever curious nose. He is my persnickety joy. Happy one-year petiversary, Tiny! #petiversary #agirlandherhog #tinylove #heartsprinkles
