Movies I love!

Today's A-Z Letter is M... for.. Movies!!

I love watching movies. I think I can spend all day watching movies, and I think I have before. I don't have a preferred genre, except for scary movies, unless you will sleep next to me with the lights on all night, then I will not watch a scary movie. I'm a huge scaredy cat. I love a good cry. 

These are some of the movies that I've recently watch and some of my all time favorite.

//The Impossible//
The movie was about the a family vacationing in Thailand when the Tsunami happened. Just to see and think about all that the people in Thailand went through with this natural disaster, made me sad. But the movie was amazing. 

//Now You See Me//

This is another movie that I recently seen. I love heist movies, I'm fascinated with  movies that are about magicians and illusionists, like The Illusionist, and The Prestige. And this movie had a twist at the end, that had me like whhaaat. 

//The Hunger Games//
{IMDb}
I loved the series, and I loved the movies. Although I think the first one was a little better than the second, I still loved it. 
//Pitch Perfect and Bridemaids//
{IMDb} // {IMDb}
I love movies that make me laugh. And these were both funny and cute. 
//The Italian Job// 
{IMDb}
Another good heist movie. I think this one is one of my favorite action movies.

Love....

Today's A-Z Letter is L... for.. Love
This weekend I went to a wedding. It was beautiful. As I was sitting at church and then at the reception watching them dance, I began to wonder, when will I have this. Right now there are new engagements, weddings, new babies all round me, and sometimes I wish for this. I know this will happen in due time, but I can't help wanted to know when, or to just fast forward to that time. 

I haven't had much experience with relationships,  but when I love I love hard, whether it be my family or my friends or my lover. But at the same time I'm so guarded, because I don't want to get get hurt. And one time I let that get in the way of what I was feeling, and I realized that instead of enjoying the time we had together, I pushed it away. But I'm ready to let it go, I'm ready to be a little bit more vulnerable when it comes to love. I'm ready to be in the moment, and not think about it too much. I'm ready to be open.

These last few years, I've been learning to just have fun. I also realized that I have first get to know myself and most of all Love Myself, before I can let anyone in. So here is a tip for myself: love yourself, live your life, and wait for the right person to come along. Don't give up, don't get frustrated. Love yourself.
Yes, I would love to have someone sweep me off my feet. But he will come. Right now I'm happy to surround myself with my family and friends and God. 
How do you love with all your everything?

Keeping the House {Currently Reading}

Today's A-Z Letter is K... for.. Keeping the House

Title : Keeping the House
Author: Ellen Baker
Publisher:  Random House
Release Date: July 10th, 2007
Summary from GoodReads:

Set in the conformist 1950s and reaching back to span two world wars, Ellen Baker’ s superb novel is the story of a newlywed who falls in love with a grand abandoned house and begins to unravel dark secrets woven through the generations of a family. Like Whitney Otto’s How to Make an American Quilt in its intimate portrayal of women’ s lives, and reminiscent of novels by Elizabeth Berg and Anne Tyler, Keeping the House is a rich tapestry of a novel that introduces a wonderful new fiction writer. 

When Dolly Magnuson moves to Pine Rapids, Wisconsin, in 1950, she discovers all too soon that making marriage work is harder than it looks in the pages of the Ladies’ Home Journal. Dolly tries to adapt to her new life by keeping the house, supporting her husband’s career, and fretting about dinner menus. She even gives up her dream of flying an airplane, trying instead to fit in at the stuffy Ladies Aid quilting circle. Soon, though, her loneliness and restless imagination are seized by the vacant house on the hill. As Dolly’s life and marriage become increasingly difficult, she begins to lose herself in piecing together the story of three generations of Mickelson men and women: Wilma Mickelson, who came to Pine Rapids as a new bride in 1896 and fell in love with a man who was not her husband; her oldest son, Jack, who fought as a Marine in the trenches of World War I; and Jack’s son, JJ, a troubled veteran of World War II, who returns home to discover Dolly in his grandparents’ house. 

As the crisis in Dolly’s marriage escalates, she not only escapes into JJ’s stories of his family’s past but finds in them parallels to her own life. As Keeping the House moves back and forth in time, it eloquently explores themes of wartime heroism and passionate love, of the struggles of men’s struggles with fatherhood and war and of women’s conflicts with issues of conformity, identity, forbidden dreams, and love.

Beautifully written and atmospheric, Keeping the House illuminates the courage it takes to shape and reshape a life, and the difficulty of ever knowing the truth about another person’s desires. Keeping the House is an unforgettable novel about small-town life and big matters of the heart.


I haven't gotten to far into it, but can't wait for the book picks up pace. I like the 50s era, and this book showcases marriage and life in the 50s, so I can't wait.
