This post should have gone up on Thursday, but as you all know by now we’re busy turning our house with 20-year-old “white” carpet into a much cleaner, nicer, and more beautiful place to live. Which includes more than you might think. (Anyone who’s undergone some remodeling knows what I’m talking about).
Anyways, all of this remodeling, getting ready to move, and wedding planning has certainly negatively impacted my ability to just sitdownandwrite. Hopefully after the Honeymoon things will calm down some more and I’ll be back to business as usual. But until then, I’ve still managed to jot down a few things here and there, to share with you all. Like another list of movies!

There’s a distinctive feeling that drapes itself across us all as summer begins to wind down. The other day, as I was cleaning out my closet, I found myself whispering sweet-nothings to my sweaters, “Just a few more months and I promise, I’ll wear you every day! Oh how I’ve missed you so…” Yes, even though it’s still the beginning of August, the hint of Fall is already in the air. But it’s not here yet! So here’s a great list of Summer movies to help you make the most of what time we have left! (And stay entertained while you sit in the air conditioning on days when it’s still hot enough to melt!).
