“Then he kissed her. Betsy didn’t believe in letting boys kiss you. She thought it was silly to be letting first this boy and then that one kiss you, when it didn’t mean a thing. But it was wonderful when Joe Willard kissed her. And it did mean a thing.”
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy and Joe
The Betsy-Tacy series was a childhood favorite of mine and this scene means everything in the world to me. I hope you have a beloved book that makes you smile.
