    I thought of putting Elizabeth on my list, but I figured that another very opinionated person in a family could cause some problems :)I didn’t even think of Mimi! She was such a great grandma. (I did however think about how I’m glad my father isn’t like Mary Anne’s father, so I had some BSC thoughts haha)

      I had the exact same thought about Mary Anne’s father. Lol.

    I love your list and would have to agree with your choice of the Weasley’s as parents!

    L-O-V-E your choices. The only problem is that I want to be Elizabeth Bennet and Atticus Finch at once…I know. I know. One is a girl and one is a boy, but I want to be that witty, regal, and passionate. Both these characters know what they want and go for it. Inspirational, no?

    Wouldn’t Atticus be the perfect dad?! Good choice 🙂
