Does It Get Any Better?

A sweet Buckeye friend emailed me yesterday with some exciting news! PBS is airing a series of films based on Jane Austen's novels. Truly, does it get any better than that? I don't think so! :-) I cannot imagine any better way to spend a quiet Sunday evening than curled up on the couch, favorite snuggly quilt, cup of peppermint tea, and a Jane Austen adaptation on film. Pure, absolute bliss! The series begins next Sunday evening and runs for several weeks. If you can only catch one, I would highly suggest the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice (with Colin Firth, oh Mr. Darcy!). It is dreamy. I am such a huge Austen fan and just adore her work. I cannot wait!

I love your blog title, "Does It Get Any Better?" It's so easy to grumble and complain about life and it's fun to see just the little things can make someone so positive.
I really hope you enjoy every second of your show!
