movie time

personal,12 April 2015

Today has been a beautiful day. We woke up, cuddled in bed, ate breakfast and drove to the barn to watch my baby sister horseback ride. Greta loves (!) horses and talks about them all the time so her eyes lit up like stars when she got to pet and even sit on the back for a minute.

Last night me and a friend went to the movies. I am a real movie junkie or at least I used to be,
pre- motherhood. I get extremely inspired by movies and they have a big impact on me emotionally. I used to only watch drama and indie movies but now a days I prefer very light subjects and upbeat films. I find there isn’t enough time to dwell, analyze and ride through personal journeys just from watching movies, so I want to limit the intake by keeping it light, simple and comfortable. And yes, I am one of those people who can watch the same movie over and over and over and over and over agin without ever getting tired.

Here are some of my all time favorite movies in no specific order:


Lost in translation

Requiem for a dream

The notebook

The machinist

A beautiful mind

The march of the penguins

    Hahha! Can’t belive that you have listed Titanic! I always get weird looks from people when I say that it’s one of my favourite movies too. :D
    Requiem for a dream and Lost in translation are mind-blowing and I can watch them over and over again without ever getting bored.
    I can also recommend you to check out “House of sand and fog” when you will feel like watching a little bit of drama and “deep” movies. :)

    Have a great Sunday evening!

      I agree but I need to feel like I deserve it and not have a ton of other to do’s on my list to be able to really focus and relax :).
