Love your choice of music..its always SO YOU! Your all over the genre's, lol.
I just downloaded the new U2 album last night, pretty good. Mostly mellow songs.

Movies..hmmm, I am terrible at remembering them. I swear I'll watch one and totally forget the name the next day. Drives the hubs nuts. I do like the Amelia one though. I remembered that!
xxoo,
a.

i often read your blog. thank you so much for sharing such gorgeous snippets of your life.
i just had to leave a comment today because love actually & amelie are 2 of my all time faves too. another that springs to mind is woody allen's very cheesy yet charming "everyone says i love you"

I love your 37 things list!

I have so many favorite movies, but I think my all time is Out of Africa.

good ones. i also like shawshank redemption, weird? and true romance can you say violent? but there is something about it i love. oh and grease. i watched that a zillion times growing up, chocolat, yeah this is hard.

Ooh, Amelie for sure. And I totally hear you about the shop around the corner. That's still one of my dreams to have a little ol' shop like hers, all cozy and welcoming. Shawshank was on just last night - doesn't he just have the dreamiest voice?
Casablanca still tops my list though I think.
Have you ever seen "In the mood for love"? Set in Hong Kong in the 60s and the story is sad but the colours and feel of it are just stunning.
