Confession.....................

I watch, or rather listen to Sense and Sensibility every time I quilt. Which is all the time. I figure I have watched this show over 20 times in the last few weeks and I never get sick of it. Clint can't believe that I watch it so much, but I find each time I watch it, I pick up on every phrase that I have missed before. I can almost quote the whole movie, with out any help. The reason I am telling you this is because I have thought a lot about the ending and how it can help me in my life. If you aren't familiar with the show I will tell you the end--- Elinor finds out that Edward didn't marry Lucy Steele and she starts bawling (love that part); then Marianne, Margaret, and Mrs. Dashwood go outside. Margaret climbs into the tree house and tells them that Edward is kneeling down and Marianne and Mrs. Dashwood hug. You can see the pure joy in their faces and the happiness that they have for their daughter and sister. Then they get married, yeah! I am a true romantic at heart. But as I have watched the show a ton, I have come to understand even more how important it is to be happy for each other. I have found, through my professional and personal life that jealousy and anger get in the way of relationships and being happy for other peoples successes. So I am going to try hard to always be happy for someone else who is succeeding and in the end, I hope that I can be a success as well.

So, on that note I am happy to announce that my sister (Jen) is a huge succes and I am happy for her. She is the most amazing, most talented bow lady out there! I am not just saying that because she's my sister, her bows are incredible! She is having a matching bow and dress giveaway. Believe me the dresses are so cute, my little Lili has several of the dresses from her website and she wears her bows exclusively. So go on over there, and say hi! Tell Jen I sent you and enter the giveaway. Surely you know of a little girl that would love a matching dress and bow. Oh, and if you can find a picture of Jen anywhere, let me know. She refuses to be photographed for some strange reason. Just imagine me with a much cuter chin, and that's what she looks like.

Good luck! I hope one of you win.

I haven't watched that one in a while. It's my favorite version of Sense and Sensibility too. I have several other Jane Austin-y type of DVD's I should loan you, if you like that time period. Do you know you can get some really good DVD's at the library too? Go check out Under The Greenwood Tree.

I love the movie too. I watch it often. I also like Pride and Predjudice. I checked out your sister's blog. Her bows are really cute.

Sister's dresses = totally cute!
Obsession with Sense and Sensibility = Totally understandable!

I just LOVE that movie, I am like you and watch is constantly, there is just something to comforting about it isn’t there? I like to watch it when I am stitching in the evenings.

If you like Sense and Sensibility then you'll love Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South. Check out the reviews on amazon at:

I'm on my second DVD of Sense and Sensibility...wore out the first one!! It's my favorite too!

You are so right, it does no good to be jealous or envious of others you just end up unhappy, it's so much better to be able to praise and enjoy the other persons success. I don't know if I could have said this when I was younger but enlightenment comes with age and if you give praise you will almost certainly get back what you give.

I do the same thing!! I exchange it with Pride and Prejudice once in a while, but I just love Sense and Sensibility! I can quote the whole movie and my 3 year old loves Edward :o) Nice to know I am not the only Jane addict!!
