When Studying Was Fun! - EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival

In that bleep of a moment when my twin sister, Jessica (Etsy shop owner of Eco-Friendly Freckles), and I lived together in our apartment at the age of 17, we both knew how fortunate we were to have our local library right across the street from us.  We enjoyed spending afternoons cooped up in one of the private rooms with our noses in preparation books for the ACT.  We'd also request movies to watch on our evenings together.  Books we regularly checked out ranged from the appealing coffee table book "a must have" to poetry and how-to books to read on picnics at the park.  "Oh Jessy, I miss basking in the sun on our quilt listening to your novice-style guitar playing while I read Shel Silverstein stories.

Aww, such good times and sweet memories! I miss our poetry-reading, guitar-playing picnics too!

I also miss checking out the 1969 Romeo and Juliet film from the library and watching it while eating homemade dark chocolate covered prunes! I loved living with you, my best friend and twin sister! Although the time we spent together living on our own was short, the memories were very sweet.
