Movie Recommendation

This picture has nothing to do with the movie, but a few people (not to name names, but Travis and Joanna) were getting pretty nasty about me doing posts without pictures...so in order to preserve my life, I put this picture up. Think about it like this, the picture was taken outdoors, and bees live outdoors (hopefully).

I read the book "The Secret Life of Bees" last summer. After I finished the book I immediately got online to do some research (is it obvious how nerdy I am?). I saw that the movie was coming out in just a few short months. Yay!

So I saw the movie yesterday and as far as book to film adaptations go, this was pretty dang good. Dakota Fanning is the lead, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, and Alicia Keys also play major roles. Dakota has been a talented actress from the time of her first film, and she keeps getting better.

So, if you are bored this weekend with nothing to do, give this movie a try. I loved it.

I don't think it is neccessary, the movie does a decent job with the story.

I'll have to check that one out. I also want to say that I love your picture of you and Audrey. And to comment on the previous post on health...I love that picture of you two sleeping as well. She is such a sweety. I love when Layla asks me if I am okay. In those moments I wonder how I deserve such amazing little girls and how can I be a better mom to them. To teach them what they need to learn to help them make it through this life. Motherhood is just an amazing, beautiful thing!

You are a beautiful mother with a beautiful family!
