They don’t have to be films with deep meaning and life-changing truth. Some of the best romantic movies ever made are light-hearted and happy.
Here are a few favorites:

Excellent writing, great acting, a believable plot, and unforgettable characters make this film a classic. The scenes with elderly couples sharing their stories are just one of the things that make this film unique, entertaining, and unforgettable. Check Time Warner Cable to see if this enduring movie is available to stream in your own home.
Bridget Jones’s Diary
Loosely based on the Austen classic Pride and Prejudice,Bridget Jones’s Diary is a film set in modern-day London, following the life of protagonist Bridget Jones as she meets a new year with resolutions to improve her self.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Though classified as a romantic comedy, Breakfast at Tiffany’s strong dramatic plot, but you’ll more-than-likely fall in love with the film’s protagonist, the dynamic Holly Golightly.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
