You've Got M@il...
Indeed, "three very powerful words." Perhaps pertaining to your email account, but in my case, I am talking about the wonderfully charming movie. I am sure that many of you have seen it at some point since it came out in 1998, and I know that alot of you count it as one of your favorite movies as well. You may be asking yourself "Why is she talking about some movie and not some new craft or flower?" Well my friends, I have to admit, this past week has seen little crafting and little time in the garden. I did not want to bore you with another vase of zinnias, since that is one place I visited yet again (Farm Stand,) so I decided to present you with my love of a good hearted movie, that makes you want to go and move to New York City, or on a tad bit less extravagant note, go and buy the soundtrack. I am not here to try to promote or sell you this movie, I just wanted to share why I love it so much.
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks if not in relationships of their own or for Tom's sake married, should have gotten married, at least after this one. I mean, "Sleepless in Seattle" was great, but how can you resist this movie!?!? Their on-screen chemistry really enhanced this movie, and made it even more light heartedly romantic then it would have been with two different actors. Based on "Shop Around the Corner", a classic with James Stewart made in 1940, (yep, not a coincidence that Kathleens bookstore was named that) it's just as fabulous! I admit to you, my dear readers, that whenever I find "You've Got Mail" on HBO, or on another channel, I always watch it, or if busy, I just leave it on while I'm in the other room in order to listen to the music. And although it may be pitiful that I know each scene, almost word for word, and even though I know what happens in the end, it just never gets old for me. It leaves me yearning for the fall, spent outside, or buying "school supplies" and then for the Spring, enjoying life at a New York farmers market. Not only that, it also makes me want to pack up my things, find a brownstone in New Yorks Westside, and also set up a little bookstore. I could go on forever talking about this film and all of its New York glory, but I thought that this would be more interesting than hearing about the very little that I have done all week which consisted of cleaning, cooking and sunbathing, NO crafting.. I know, I know, I need to get bitten with the creative bug again, but for now, I'm going to go watch it again ;) Until the next time my friends, wishing you a sunny August welcome, and some time to curl up and watch one of your favorites!!
