One of the only benefits of not having the infant we so desperately yearn for is that Alex and I can go on date nights any time we want.
For Valentine’s Day, Alex was so sweet to buy us tickets to one of my all-time favorite movies “Yours, Mine, and Ours” (the original of course – I hate remakes). The movie was being shown downtown at the Elks Movie Theater as part of the Nostalgia Night Film Series. I have to admit we were probably the youngest couple in the theater but I just love the movie and the theater even provided a special program giving historical facts about the movie. I had no idea the film was based on a true story. I really enjoy learning the history and fun little tidbits about films.
February is one of the better months of the year because it is the shortest winter month, the Superbowl and Academy Awards are both held during, and I look good in red. This year there is even more to celebrate in February. Alex and I have been “officially” together for 7 years and the month also includes Alex’s birthday.
Being that it is the month of love, I thought I would touch on the subject with another movie guide. The following movie guide is not totally focused on romance but instead on a movie genre I love . . . MUSICALS. Obviously, love is almost always the main focal point of a musical but the dancing and singing are the parts that make my heart swell.
