Happy Valentine’s Eve

With Valentine’s Day breathing down our necks, I thought I would take a moment to share a few quotes from some of my favorite movie scenes. Being such a romantic deep down inside, it was hard to decide which ones made the cut.

Ethel: You’re my knight in shining armor. Don’t you forget it. You’re going to get back up on that horse, and I’m going be right behind you, holding on tight, and away we’re going to go, go, go.
Norman: I don’t like horses.

On Golden Pond

Rose: Do you love him, Loretta?
Loretta Castorini: Aw, ma, I love him awful.
Rose: Oh, God, that’s too bad.

Moonstruck 

“And then the dreams break into a million tiny pieces. The dream dies. Which leaves you with a choice: you can settle for reality, or you can go off, like a fool, and dream another dream.”

Rachel in Heartburn

Leia: I love you.

Han: I know.

The Empire Strikes Back

“So I had planned to marry Peter, but I married Jack instead. I guess my father was right. Life doesn’t always turn out the way you planned. But Jack, Jack gave me the best gift, a stamp in my passport. He took me to Florence for our honeymoon. I guess you can say he gave me the world. Peter once asked me when it was that I fell in love with Jack, and I told him, it was while you were sleeping.”

Lucy in While You Were Sleeping

This list could go on and on. There are so many great scenes and romantic quotes. What about you? Do you have a favorite that tugs at your heart strings?

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 13- Love

“I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)” -e.e. cummings

How could I NOT share the most special Valentine I received this year from my favorite 6 year old? A few things to note- the marks by the heart’s hands are the motion of his hands flapping, that is his curly hair on top although it is colored in orange (which it is not) and he has eyebrows. Little CJ and I have shared a rocky journey but I love him more than anything and it’s small things like this that tell me that he knows it.

All You Need is Love…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cupid’s Arrow.”

 

In honor of Valentine’s Day and the daily prompt of “Cupid’s Arrow” I am dedicating this post to my romantic favorites. I’m not an overly romantic person in my real life, but I cannot pass up a great love story.

A line from the movie Sleepless in Seattle that makes me sigh—

“Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home… only to no home I’d ever known… I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic.”   -Sam Baldwin, Sleepless in Seattle

Sam is speaking of his deceased wife whose life is cut short, leaving him to raise his young son alone. The soft longing in his voice always gets to me. Oh, to be loved like that!

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in by e. e. cummings is one of my favorite poems about love.

I love everything about this poem. It is the perfect description of love to me. It’s the feeling that you carry inside you when love and you are loved. To hear the poem in its entirety, click here.

Friends’ Monica and Chandler’s Proposal

If you aren’t a fan of the tv series, Friends, this might not have the same impact but to me, it was one of the most romantic tv moments ever! Everything that happened in the episode leading up to this moment only made it that much more perfect.

Lizzie and Darcy, need I say anymore?

“It is a truth universally acknowledged. that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” -Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Okay, maybe it’s cliché but I did say I was a sucker for romance, right? I fell in love with Pride and Prejudice the first time I read it and I have never stopped, no matter how many times I re-read the book.

In closing, I will leave you with my all-time favorite love song by the Beatles- If I Fell

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love, Kat
