Happy Blogiversary to Us, ft. Things That Have Kept Us Going for the Past Year

Hello friends! Exactly seven years, at the age of seventeen I created the original version of Wordy and Whimsical, which - to be perfectly honest - started off rather weakly.

Matching Books With Some Old Kids’ TV Shows

Hey there, it’s Sabrina!  I don’t know about you, but I used to watch a lot of TV growing up.  Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t spend my childhood glued to the screen, but I did watch a variety of shows that I very much enjoyed - some to extreme extents.  I’m hoping that there’s… Continue reading Matching Books With Some Old Kids’ TV Shows
