Caught up with my old good fun friend Jemma and I finally met Bubba Kuchel and what a doll she is! Living in different states/countries makes friendship difficult sometimes but its always nice to simply pick up where you left things.
On a sadder note: My beautiful friend Nicole lost her precious Nonna this week. Its a sad reminder that life is short, life is precious and life is to be cherished.. every second we are granted. Make it all count. x
Unless you’ve been living under a rock since the 90’s, you have probably seen Pretty Woman a few times and love it…and whats not to love? Its the classic cinderella story all over again (well, if cinderella had briefly turned to street walking) – There is a rich man, a gorgeous girl who is down on her luck, they meet, she gets a makeover, they fall madly inlove, and live happily ever after *le sigh*
BEN: Do you wanna walk?
FELICITY: The truth is, I can’t be with you like this. I mean, I know I said that I could, but I can’t. I can’t just compromise myself like that. I mean, I’m an emotional person. I feel things, and I need to be able to get upset and talk about how I’m feeling. I mean, that’s just, that’s who I am, and I can’t change it. I don’t want to. And the thing is, you knew that. You knew it, and you still pursued me. Because you want something with me. You just aren’t strong enough to have it. Which… in a way, makes you a coward. And the saddest part is that one day, you’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna realize what you missed and it’ gonna be too late.
BEN: I don’t know what to say.
FELICITY: I know, it’s okay. [gives him a kiss on the cheek & walks away]
