Have you seen this movie? B rented it last year one cold weekend, and, suffice it to say, I wasn't all that interested in it. I hadn't heard of it, and I was hoping he would bring home The Other Bolyn Girl which I had been dying to see. He convinced me to watch it, and thank goodness he did. It's one of those movies that just gets into your heart and settles right in. I was SOBBING at the end. Not a cute girly "oh it's so cute" cry.......oh no, this was a gasping for breath, break your heart, sobbing!! I can't tell you what I said at the end (it'll ruin the movie for you) but B still says it outloud sometimes and always starts laughing! He rented it again on Valentine's weekend, and, though I didn't expect it to affect me as much because I already know what happens, there I was on the couch again with heart wrenching sobs! It is such a touching, honest, raw movie that is in no way overdone. If you've seen it, let me know what you thought. If you haven't, rent it soon. I promise, it is worth the 1 1/2 hr investment!

PS- It did win an Oscar for best song- Falling Slowly. I tried to upload the video clip from youtube and couldn't, so head on over there if you want to hear/remember which song it is. Just lovely!


  1. I thought it was a great movie that song! I'm so with you on the tears....

  2. Hey girl! I'm sorry I didn't answer your question before about where in Michigan I grew up! I grew up in a small town called Manistee that is about forty minutes south of Traverse City. I don't know a lot about Petoskey other than that it is a popular tourist place-I know my grandparents used to spend a lot of time there. Where are you guys looking to move? I lived in Kalamazoo for a year in college and love South Haven, which is the small port town just West of Kzoo on the shoreline. Good luck to you guys relocating!! Somedays I think I'd love to go back to MI and other days I don't know that I could handle the weather. My hubby grew up in NC near blowing rock and he thinks Indiana is freezing (where we are now). Stay in touch, I'll be praying for you guys!! Erin

  3. Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog and even more so for all of the prayers. It's really refreshing to know that there are complete strangers who you've become friends with through cyberspace who are rooting for you. xox
