Its been along time since I have done a hello post and I think now is a good time to do one.
I have spent a wonderful with my family celebrating Fathers Day. I love hanging out with my family, we chat, laugh, get into an argument or two (always ends happily) and solve the problems of the world. We sit back, eat yummy food and drink nice wine and talk... just talk!
We spent a lot of time talking about our trip to New York City (which is 25 days away...for those who just had to know) and although I didn't really mind talking about it, it just got me all excited and wanting the time to be now. I don't think I have ever wanted a holiday so bad as this one. We started talking about all the movies that have been filmed in NYC and which ones have been our favourites. All this talk about movies and NYC got me thinking. To occupy my time before I go (okay I have housework, ironing, errands etc etc etc but thats boring stuff, I wanted something fun) I decided I would start watching some of the movies/tv shows, you know just to kill time (25 days worth of time actually).
The more I started thinking about it the more excited I got. So as soon as we got home I started looking to see what movies I could possibly watch. OMG! My choice is, like, huge. Just pick one to start with I thought and go from there. So tonight I snuggled up on the couch and rented "You've Got Mail" from Itunes.
This is probably one of my most favourite movies and I was surprised at how much I had forgotton. I laughed and cried (I am such a huge cryer in movies) and laughed and cried and loved it. I did remember the book store and oh how I loved that book store. I can get so lost in a book store for hours. I don't even have to pick up a book, I just love seeing all the books lined up, sitting there, all with a story to tell. There is something so romantic and nostalgic about a book store, especially one like in "You've Got Mail".
I loved the chemistry between Tom and Meg (I say that like I know them lol), they seemed so perfect for each other and I am such a sucker for a happy ending (of course I really sob at the end, especially if its a happy ending sniff, sniff).
I loved seeing the quaint little tree lined streets, the brownstone buildings with their perfectly matched steps leading up to the front doors. I loved seeing the views of NYC, the markets where they sell fresh fruits and flower stands selling so many different kinds of flowers. I loved seeing the hotdog stands, the Starbucks stores and yellow cabs. All the while knowing that in just 25 days, 1 hour, 23 minutes and 14 seconds I will be able to touch them.
love me :-)
