A Letter To You- An Autumn Poem

As Autumn sets in,

And the leaves start to change,

And the air becomes crisp.

I think of all the things we missed.

Of you carving your first pumpkin.

Your first sip of cider.

Of jumping in piles of leaves.

Of making pies and cookies.

Of new traditions and old.

Of stories of pumpkins and the magic of legends of old.

Of campfires and marshmallows.

Of long walks and playing in the park.

Curling up on the couch with a good book and a warm drink.

Of listening to jazz and dancing to songs about the season.

Of pilgrims and Indians.

And of plays in costumes made by hand.

Thoughts of you fill my mind,

Of your smile, and your laugh,

And I love you, evermore.

Lights...Camera...Action?- Movie Review- Bringing Up Baby

This romantic screwball comedy is one of my favorite Grant films. It's one of the screwiest movies i've ever seen, filled with zany antics, snappy and flirty banter, wisecracking one-liners, absurd situations and hare-brained misadventures.

 Bringing Up Baby Bringing Up Baby

While trying to obtain a sizeable donation for his museum, David Huxley (Cary Grant) clashes with a flighty and often flirty heiress, Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) and her pet leopard, Baby.

Did I Make A Difference?

 Did I make an impact?

Did I make a change?

Did I follow or lead?

Did I Conform or Stand out?

Did I stand up for my beliefs or keep quiet?

Was I different or standard?

Was I a good friend?

Was I a good sister?

Did I show you a difference?

Did I Make A Difference?....

Lights...Camera...Action?- Movie Review- Please Don't Eat The Daisies

 What does, a housewife, a writer, four boys, a dog, and an old house get you? Why a romantic comedy of course. Well, Que sera, sera.

Please Don't Eat The Daisies

Kate Mackay (Doris Day) is a busy housewife with a drama-critic husband, four rambunctious boys, and a dog that's afraid of, well...everything. And with only three weeks left on their lease they bye an old (BEAUTIFUL) fixer-upper out in the country, but Lawrence Mackay (David Niven) is finding the commute less than ideal, as well as not being able to write anything good about the plays he see's, his newfound celebrity causes problems with both his friends and family.
