If Only…


There are some movies, that no matter when I happen  upon them , I cannot help but watch till the very end. Brian’s Song, Rudy, Runaway Bride and You’ve Got Mail!

Love them all…and I can recite each word for word.  Imagine my delight when I realized that You’ve Got Mail, also has some very loyal followers, and others love the quotes as much as I. What I really think delights me about this movie, is Birdie calls Kathleen, “Dearie”, which is what my Mom called her sister…and watching this movie, reminds me of my mom. <3


These are some of my favorite quotes…and I’ve had fun putting them in order.  Almost like putting together a puzzle.


A bouquet of newly sharpened pencils… I love that visual!


A small, but valuable life…





I love this because it has Kevin’s name…and no doubt someone said the same thing to him about me. 😉 #iliveinmyownlittleworld

I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice, but it’s on my summer reading list.  #coastalliving


A snap to find the one person in the world who fills your heart with joy. 



I do.



While Meg Ryan looks so cute with this hairstyle, I tried to emulate it myself.  #notmylook


“152 people who think he looks like Clark Gable…

The number of people who think he looks like a clark bar!”

love, love, love this quote!



You have to love happy endings.

job you love

And not to be outdone by my fun, family dinner or Meredith’s new career…but the icing on the cupcake this week, I was able to have dinner with 3 of my all-time favorite, men, Ever…and Lora and Mindy, as well, two of my favorite gals.    Truly best dinner ever, drinking my new favorite wine, Flowers Chardonnay.  #beingwithfriendsthebestmedicine



kissing dave

Clearly Tom missed the memo, “everyone kiss Dave”.  Yes, the light around my face is my halo.  #angel



Lora and Mindy, taking a selfie, while I participated in the photo shoot with my guys.  Cute pic, cute girls, bad focus.

Best. Week. Ever!
