And I say “season” because as a florist, this is the busiest season for us in the flower world, (and I have a surprise for you, keep going) I’m also a cinephilia, a term used to refer to a passionate interest in cinema.
I love everything about movies, from soundtrack, to custom design, to all the talented actors/actresses, (special shout out to one of my favorites, Meryl Streep, this year Cecil B. DeMille Award winner at the Golden Globes - you’re AWESOME, and NEVER overrated!!), and of course the screenplays.
I’m one of those people that enjoy going to a matinee by myself, (as I’m writing this blog, I’m thinking…. La La Land.:) Most likely you’ll find me Saturday nights curling up with my gang eating popcorn and watching a movie, and yes…….“The Oscars” are my Super Bowl.
So, when time came to create a Valentine’s Campaign, being that I’m a romantic at heart, it was a no brainer to find inspiration on my favorite movies.
Now, if you’re a girl (or a sensitive boy), I’ll most definitely get an AMEN from you when I say that "THE NOTEBOOK" is the ultimate best love story EVER!!!! I can recite almost every line, and I’m not ashamed of it. ;) Here’s is my favorite:
And if you haven’t read the book you probably don’t know…. Noah planted a rose garden for Ellie every time she had a baby…... AWWWWWW, I love you Noah!!!! (warming up for the surprise?)
Now, Valentine’s is a lot about friendship too. We remember and celebrate those who are ALWAYS there for us. Who comes to mind for you? I can't imagine life without my top 3 friends, I love you guys.
For me, Woody and Buzz are the ultimate “I’ve got your back” kind of friends, and maybe because I’ve watched Toy’s Story over a 1000 times when my girls were toddlers, it has a warm place in my heart!!
Ok, this is my last one, so let’s get dark and twisty here. Who doesn’t love the story of Pat (super cute Bradley Cooper), and Tiffany (super talented academy award winner Jennifer Lawrence), in Silver Linings Playbook?
Two individuals with tons of baggage from past relationships, not to mention some pretty heavy emotional issues, but despite all that, an unexpected connection forms between them, and silver linings appear for both of them!!!
There you have, my top 3 "Valentine’s" movies. If you haven’t seen them yet, I totally encourage you to do so, you won’t be wasting your time, I promise. :) - (here it comes)
