It’s February!! Do you know what this means?!
I am dedicating all of our #ThrowbackThursday posts this month to classic love stories that make me feel all warm and mushy inside.
Feel free to comment below with your own favorite love stories!
Last, but certainly not least, is one of my most favorite literary couples, Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables!
Hip Hip HOORAY for red-headed heroines!
Y’all already know how much I love Anne Shirley. She is such a dreamy, a spunky lass filled with an unquenchably bright spirit that lights up the lives of those around her.
Sparks certainly flew between her and Gilbert, that’s for sure! Of course, those sparks were of the hostile variety… When he tormented and teased her, and called her “Carrots,” the infamous slate-bashing instance occurred. They became bitter enemies, competing with one another academically to be named the best.
Over time, though, Gilbert becomes sweeter and kinder. Anne resisted the thaw in their relationship at first, but eventually, the two foes become friends.
Friendship then developed into something more, and *sigh* Their love story is just the sweetest.
Everyone’s favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over.
