Happy weekend, one and all! Here’s your regular assortment of some new favorite Internet discoveries and quotes. Laugh, muse, and appreciate appropriately. Let me know what you think in the comments below! 

Lady Mary’s Perfect Man
In which lovely Michelle Dockery, the brilliant actress behind THE Lady Mary Crawley of Downton Abbey, reflects on her character’s many suitors over all six seasons. What traits from each would contribute to the ideal man?! A good laugh and a lot of adorableness.

The Enneagram
The enneagram personality test! I know Myers-Brigg well, so this one is newer to me but also interesting. Your top three scores are your strongest tendencies. I’m types 2, 4, and 6. And yeah, I kind of like that I got all even numbers. 

Meet Blogger Elizabeth Hance
Aka… meet me! Haha! In case you missed it, my good blogger friend Jamie did me the honor of interviewing me on her blog recently! We’re fellow Narnia nerds and love some good book talk. Check out my chat with her and be sure to keep browsing her blog!

Me Before You Trailer
I had no idea that the smashingly successful novel Me Before You by Jojo Moyes was headed for the big screen until I saw this trailer link on Facebook this week. I’ve not read the book, but watching this trailer made me want to. I’ve now put in a request at my library and there are probably about 82 people in front of me. Here’s hoping I get it before the movie comes out! 

Rick Steves’ Travel Tips: Rick’s Packing List
Rick Steves is one of my favorite travel experts to read. He’s a wealth of knowledge about all things European travel, and this packing list is fantastic. And it’ll hopefully be coming in handy soon because… I’M GOING TO ENGLAND!!!! More details coming soon :) Enjoy the quotes for now and stay tuned.

I'm coming for you, England! I have a feeling we're going to get along pretty well.
