Happy 108th Anniversary Anne with an 'E'!
Happy anniversary to everyone's favorite red-headed dreamer, Anne Shirley! L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables was first published in June 1908 and she's been inspiring girls of all ages for the past 108 years!
I first fell in love with Anne of Green Gables when I was around 12 years old at that wonderfully awkward in-between stage when I so wanted to be thought grown up and yet the young girlish side of me still clung to the belief that fairies just might be real.
Jonathan always asks me why I like her so much and I think it's because she captures the very essence of every young girl, all the wonder and dreams, the silly heartaches that really were a big deal and the untainted views of tomorrow's possibilities. Every now and then we all need to be reminded of the young girl that still lives inside of us.
With that being said I thought it would be fun to round up some of my all-time favorite Anne of Green Gables quotes to share with y'all. Enjoy!
Oh, Anne, I couldn't have said it better myself!
If you're a kindred spirit I'd love to hear when you first fell in love with Anne. As you all know...
"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world."
