I am bookgirl, or b or bethany. I begged my husband to start this blog with me, and he had (probably still has) every intention of doing the reading but he has come to the conclusion that he is selfish and doesn't want to write reviews...it makes him think about the reading as homework. He is also in grad school right now and has a full-time job, so I wouldn't call his neglect of B&b ex libris selfishness at all. So, anyway, that is why the blog is called B&b ex libris because he is Brad (B) and I am bethany (b) I liked the title and took it, so now unless a better one comes up I think I'll keep it the way it is. Oh and ex libris means "our library" or "from the libary of" I like it even if he never posts another review, ever.
So, me. I am 28, born in 1980 and have two boys (3 and 5). We'll have more, but that is what we have for now. I graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Spanish and a love of Spanish and English literature. I love the sounds of language, I have studied Japanese, Italian, French and German as well...just a little though. I grew up in Spain, and am therefore blessed by being bilingual since way before I can remember.
I love Jesus and try as hard as I can to follow him daily, while fully knowing I can give nothing and must rely on grace. I am a backyard chicken farmer and really like all types of animals (as long as they have feathers or fur) and would like to own a farm someday. I love photography, painting, drawing and have recently really gotten into knitting, quilting and embroidery. I ran all through highschool, we were good....but it was because we trained like insanity. Now all the physical activity that I do is fun, I play with my kids, run around, be silly and that takes more energy than I have! :) I also can't get enough of rock climbing...more bouldering since I am afraid of heights.
Oh if you want to see more about all my crazy fun life....check out my personal blog: the good.the bad.the ugly. It has tons of recipes, photos, art, kids things, chicken stuff...ya know, whatever I feel like talking about really.
Do you have any questions about me?? Ask away!
