I started this post about random things I'm loving lately, and then I realized they were about movies, so it's going to be a post filled with random movie love.

- This picture of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe shot by Annie Leibovitz. Michelle is starring in the new movie "My Week with Marilyn," as Marilyn Monroe and it looks breathtaking. I've always had an odd obsession with Marilyn Monroe as most people do, and I think Michelle really does her justice.
Does this picture inspire you as it does me?

-We watched the 2011 version of Jane Eyre last weekend and I fell in love with this movie and with Mr. Rochester played by Michael Fassbender. He is such a fascinating actor, I was transfixed to the screen. I'm dying to see Shame which just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival starring Michael Fassbender. I can't tell you why I loved Jane Eyre as much as I did. It's one of those movies that I didn't want to end and in my mind, the movie continues on and Mr. Rochester and Jane are still out there, in love. Sigh. Sometimes I see a movie, and I end up feeling inspired, touched, different in a way, and this was one of those films. Do movies do that to you too?

-This movie comes out today, I Don't Know How She Does It. With the Mrs. SJP. As a working mom who almost never has free time, I think I can relate to this one. I hope it's as good as I want it to be. Now I just need a babysitter so I can go to the movie.

If you know me in real life, and you know me well, you would know that I love movies. I do. Growing up my walls were covered in movie posters, and I loved dreaming up movie ideas, writing scripts, acting. I've taken several screenwriting and acting classes throughout my life. There is a fire inside of us that ignites when we are passionate about something, and this is what does it for me. Lately, I'm having a harder time ignoring this fire and I'm itching to do something about it.

I have an insanely busy week ahead of me with out-of-town guests, Disneyland, Carter's Birthday and the million and one errands leading up to all of those. I will do my best to keep you all updated.
