Last night we decided to go for an ‘after dinner walk’. There was still daylight at 6:00 pm, it was truly wonderful.
We had to stop at the movie store and drop off some late rentals. While we were there, I decided I was going to rent a movie and have a movie night myself while court watched hockey. I rented “Love and other drugs” with Jake Gyllenhall (oh how I love to watch movies with him!) and Anne Hathaway.
I absolutely loved it!
I haven’t watched a romantic movie in a few weeks, and this movie hit just the right spot.
I am a romantic.
I love movies in which people fall in love and realize the intensity of that love. I love happy endings and cheesy lines. I love tears and heartfelt monologues.
I love it all!
Love is such a powerful emotion. All kinds of love. It seems to resonates so true to all of us. Everyone seems to have their own intensity in feeling love but we all crave it. We all want it to be given to us, and we all want to give it back.
Hollywood Blockbusters exaggerate love. It is like romance on steroids. Maybe that is why some people hate romantic movies, because they don’t reign true to real life. But I think that is why I love them.
They are exagerated versions of real life. They intensify the dynamic of romantic love and make you feel passionately strong for 90 minutes. They strongly envelope you with feelings of love. They remind you of your own feelings.
What would we do with out the cheesy love movies to remind us to live with love?
“Love and other drugs” was just what I needed last night. It allowed me to connect with that inner romantic in me (I needed to connect to that inner romantic and be a little nicer after my meltdown regarding my Costco trip yesterday, but that is for another time!)
I’ve never known anyone who actually believe that I was enough until I met you. And then you made me believe it too.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
