In the United States today, we celebrate a day of thanksgiving, a day on which we slow down from our usual hustle and bustle of life to take time to reflect on all the many things for which we are thankful.
Although I will be spending a portion of time today grading–it never ends! lol–I will also be observing this day of thanks by remembering my blessings and thanking my Lord for them.
Wherever you may be in this world, I wish you a blessed day of remembering all of your many blessings–big and small. Suffice it to say that this little hearty blogging community is one of the blessings in my life!
Despite my self-proclaimed hiatus from blogging, in light of Friday’s tragedy in Paris, I felt compelled to type a few words as inadequate as they may be in the wake of the devastation: “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.”
May these three words that symbolize the mentality of the country and its people continue to resonate strongly–now more than ever–as they, along with the rest of the world, rally from Friday night’s horror and continue to pursue liberty, equality, and fraternity…especially in the face of such tumult and grief.
The country of France and its people have proved themselves valiant, resilient, and united throughout history. The Arc de Triomphe stands as just one concrete evidence of such a legacy. The present time will be no different as the French once again triumph.
For those Twinkles who are in France, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. We hope that you are safe and look forward to hearing that you are well. *Fighting!*

It’s finally here~! The long-anticipated third installment of the Answer Me (aka Reply) series. The first episode aired today, and I took a much-needed break from the work week to tune in and assess whether this last portion of the Answer Me trilogy would be worth my time and energy.
Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Woohoo~! I hope you’re all thriving this week and enjoying the cool, crisp fall weather.
Last week, my suspicions about a fellow Twinkle was confirmed: Jules has a freakish memory. Heh. Who knew that she could remember the picture with such accuracy. Anyone else guess the three components but chose to remain silent as is the usual nature of our Twinkles? LOL. In any case, she is this week’s true K-drama fan! You can check out her comment here.
Now, since today is So Ji Sub‘s birthday, how could I not honor him with a WW challenge, right? 😉 It’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot! Continue reading Wednesday What?!: November 4, 2015

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Sunday or at least what is left of it since I’m posting this later than usual! 😀 For those of you in the U.S.–or any other part of the world that shifted into daylight savings time today–I hope you enjoyed an extra hour of sleep as we “fell” back an hour in anticipation of the shorter daylight time.
With only two months left of 2015–seriously?!?–I’m changing up the contents of the bulletin board. Hopefully, you won’t mind the changes. 😉
