Linkin' Up for a Little Love

Can I get a big "WOOHOO" for Friday?!?!?!?

And now for something new here on the porch...."I'm Loving' It Friday".

And this Friday I'm lovin' "JULIE & JULIA", hands down my favorite movie of the last year!!!

Since first seeing this movie when it came out on DVD, I have watched it over and over. I just love it for so many reasons:

Meryl Streep captures the very essence of Julia Child in her performance. Every little nuance, gesture, and inflection just speaks "JULIA". It's as if the ghost of the great chef stepped in to inhabit the actress's body and define the performance. And what's not to love about Julia? She was comfortable with her ownself and loved life.

I love Julie and watching her journey through a year of blogging. The fact that she undertook cooking her way through "The Art of Mastering French Cooking" is daunting enough. That she did this in a miniscule apartment kitchen while she was working full-time is unbelievable to me. Her growth, personally and in the kitchen, throughout that year is inspirational to me and encouraged me to commit to my own blog.

It is a beautifully made movie, each frame visually pleasing. It made me long to see to Paris and taste the most scrumptious looking food ever. This movie just made me FEEL GOOD!!! I know it has been out for several months now, but I'm not tired of it yet! It is very simply a well-made and enjoyable motion picture and, face it, those are getting few and far between anymore.

I'm linking up to Tidymom's "I'm Lovin' It Friday" today, so click on over and see what other Bloggers are lovin' today!!!

Make yours a Fantastic Friday!!!
