"There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond it's reach."

New Zealand, November 2012 ✨
I haven't shared a NZ photo in quite awhile! But the next few will be from... can you guess?

stay tuned for more (eventually) πŸ˜‰

The Professor! β˜•οΈ πŸƒ πŸ‚ 🌿 Currently: Reading The Two Towers, drinking spiced tea, journaling Christmas 2016, and doing some trivia to celebrate Tolkien's birthday πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‚ Fun fact: I got that postcard of him at the Eagle & Child! #tolkientribe

Happy 125th birthday to the late Professor Tolkien. πŸ’š Although I haven't actually met him, his work has made a deep and everlasting impact on me, and I know my life would be drastically different if not for his stories of Middle-earth. Many of you can relate. From the time I was a little child and for the rest of my life, I will owe some of my most cherished memories & friendships to this man and the beautiful stories he gave us.
This photo was taken last year when I visited my friends in England, friends who I previously had met on my trip to New Zealand 4 years ago :')

#treatyoself day, I guess πŸ™ƒ I just so happened to stumble upon all these wonderful things within just 2 shops! I'm excited about those books but also FRODO LUNCHBOX 😍

finally gift-exchanged with one of my dearest friends last night; this was one she gave me!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„πŸ˜Š

I put together a Mirkwood Elf outfit before work today! I don't think I've ever dressed up as another character or race in Middle-earth besides a Hobbit 😊 yay for Elves though! πŸƒπŸ‚ Happy Halloween!

happy #hobbitday to all my fellow Tolkien fans! Tonight, to celebrate, I made hobbit-sized apple pies with my love 😊

a recent work of mine, from late 2015
Durin's Bane

my good friend, Elvish, enjoying New Zealand back in 2012 - I miss her & I can't believe it's been this long since we adventured in Middle-earth!!!

I got an email from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt saying they'd give away Hobbit flag banners to the first 20 replies, but SURPRISE! ✨ Not only did I get that, but also 2 buttons, a million bookmarks and 25 little Smaug tattoos! I'm so excited! πŸ“–

From the annual LOTR marathon at my local theater last month. I got 2nd place in the costume contest as Bilbo Baggins :)

Happy Hobbit Day everybody! Happy birthday Frodo & Bilbo Baggins!!! πŸŽ‚ what have you done to celebrate?
