Which Story Do I Belong In?

It's another lovely edition of the Whatever Wednesdays link-up and the topic is: If you could live in a different decade, what would it be and why? 

Well, I have always found this quote, from Cornelia Funke's Inkheart, fitting for my life at times...
  "My dear, you were obviously born into the wrong story." 
Except the story that I was meant to be born into changes all the time. 

Sometimes it is my own and other times (typically depending upon the book or movie that I am loving at the time) it is a far different time and place.  If I watch Downton Abbey, I want to live in Yorkshire in the early 1900s. I have always felt that my soul would fit right into a Jane Austen novel or that I would make the perfect Jo March and run a school for boys in the late 1800s. Sometimes I want to live in the wild west and ride the range. Other times I feel an inkling to go back to small town America when it was just blooming.. think "Little House on the Prairie." 

I think those would probably be my favorites, though there are tons of others I think I would like to try out. Like maybe a boarding school during the 1960s. Sounds fun?! Ok, well it was in "The Trouble with Angels."

I do know that I can't live with the dinosaurs. I would not make a good cave woman! Though watching The Croods did make it a little more appealing. Such a cute movie; you should totally see it! 



  1. TROUBLE WITH ANGELS! I cannot believe you threw in that movie - I LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie!

    Oh, wow. I haven't watched it in years. I actually bought the DVD, just to have, but haven't watched anything but the VHS.

    And now I'm going on a tangent.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. hahahah I LOVED The Croods!! They did make it a little more romantic, but only a slight bit.

    If only we could jump right into Downton Abbey. If only.

  3. I didn't even think about little women when I was writing my whatever wednesday.
    That's a glaring omission on my part.
    I'm glad I'm not alone in wanting to live in books.


Thanks for stopping by for a bit!
I love comments, they make me smile :) Hope you are having a wonderful day!
