Moving on.....

Have you seen Eat, Pray, Love yet?  I had a day full of eating, praying, and loving! To start with, we finally got to go back to church today.  It feels like we've been gone for FOREVER because of all our traveling etc.  It felt good to be back.  Like family.  Very refreshing.  (That's the pray part.)  Then, I had a fun girl afternoon --- we ate a delicious lunch at our favorite pizza place, then saw the movie, THEN talked (love) about it over coffee and a heavenly slice of chocolate silk pie.  (In case you didn't notice, I did the best with the "eat" part.)


I recommend the movie.  It's sweet, and has some great messages about life... Especially about the importance of slowing down and learning to love yourself.  *One of my favorite lines was when the italian guys say to Liz (Julia Roberts): "You Americans know entertainment, but you don't know pleasure."  How true is that?! There are some things I disagree with in the movie, of course; but, that's what life is all about. And, yes, it did make me want to travel more.   

Now, my cute husband is making me crab-cakes for dinner, and I'm organizing binders for back-to-school tomorrow. Love it!

Today was the kind of day that's good for the soul.  The perfect cap to a wonderfully refreshing summer.
How was your Sunday?  What are your thoughts on the movie?
