Seven years ago today, I married my best friend. It was a small and pretty wedding full of family and a few close friends. I wore a simple wedding gown, and Hubby wore a tux with a long jacket. He even pulled his long hair back for the occasion. However, the beard was in attendance.

I have to say, I was surprised I was getting married. At the beginning of the 2000s, I never thought I'd find Mr. Right. I had dated a few clunkers, and I was discouraged.

Then in 2001, a few college friends and I saw Moulin Rouge ... )

And now, on with the 31 Day Meme.

Heh...I haven't been much of a blogger lately. I have more Summer Fling posts (aka, excuses to posts pics of Henry Cavill) and more Squeeworthy Books posts waiting in the wings. But today, let's meme!

3. Your favorite quote

There are a lot of quotes I like, but "Carpe Diem!" is probably my favorite.

4. What are you afraid of?

I'd like to say nothing, but that's not true. So...bees, spiders, and the dark.

And a couple of you asked about the story behind how Ewan McGregor was involved when I met my husband. I'll tell that story tomorrow since it's our wedding anniversary.

It's hot in the library tonight. Our air conditioner broke, and now it feels like it's only blowing out hot air. I bet the books are wilting. Ugh.

Anyway, to help me try to blog every day or so, I found this fun meme on [personal profile] misbegotten's journal. It's called The 30 Day Meme. Let's see what happens.

1. Introduction and recent photo

Hello! I'm Amy, and I'm a bit of a shameless geek. I'm a library assistant in the state of NC after being a teacher and a reporter before this. One day, I'll be a real librarian.

I also dream of writing novels. Currently, I'm editing the book I've been working on forever. In August, I'm going to start querying it. Wish me luck!

I'm happily married to a tall, bearded man and we're the proud parents of two cats - Sam and Sparta.

I'm quite the fangirl, even though I'm in my 30's. My current love is Henry Cavill and the movie Man of Steel. I also love Thor, Highlander, Charmed, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and several others.

I don't have a recent picture so I'm opting out of that portion.
