Summary: “Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day.

1. The sky is overcast and murky gray, packed with the sort of clouds you suffer through in fall, but it’s the middle of summer and they’re wildly out of place.

2. I’ve finally reached the tipping point where life gets easier instead of harder.

3. They can’t grant every wish, even faeries have their limits, so they use the smallest of their magics to release the overflow as fireflies.

4. Horses are more intelligent than the English give them credit for and she uses that weakness to her advantage. Rumors of her witchcraft are just that, but she’ll happily barter superstition for a chance to work inside the Duchess’s stables.

5. Stories never begin with headaches. They all start with happy protagonists rushing out into the world– not curled up in bed with the covers over their head trying to ignore the pain.

1. The roads to my house are enchanted and those with ill intent forget where they are going and miss the turnoff to my cottage. Which worked just fine until GPS was invented.
