Roman Holiday

by Andrea Renee Cox

Did you know your local movie theater might show a classic film every now and then?

A couple of weeks ago I discovered that the theater I frequent was planning on featuring Roman Holiday, my favorite Audrey Hepburn film. Of course I had to see it! And, thankfully, one of the showtimes was on a Sunday afternoon, a time at which I could attend.

I was the first one in the theater, and chills washed over me as I thought of what seeing this film must have been like for the moviegoers of the early 1950s (the movie originally released in 1953). As I sat there waiting for the movie to begin, I realized again just how much the movie experience had changed over the years (not that I was there for all of the changes, considering I was born in the late 1980s). Though I won't go into the details today, here's a neat article about some of the differences.

Be My Guest: Andrea Boeshaar

by Andrea Renee Cox

Recently I read and greatly enjoyed a book written by Andrea Boeshaar (The Lighthouse Brides Collection), so I invited her to be a guest on my blog. I hope you enjoy this fun interview she sent me. Make sure you stay tuned to the very end. We've got a sweet surprise for you!


When did you decide that you would be an author? Was it something you fell into or felt called to?
I knew I would be a writer when I was in 4th grade. It was then that I wrote my first “novel” called “Little Miss Mouse.” I still have it. It’s hilarious to read now, but I realized I wanted to write as a child.

Bit O' Inspiration: Part Two

One thing on my mind today:

The Dallas Stars

My favorite hockey team is playing well to start their season. As of Sunday afternoon, they hold the best record in the entire NHL, at 12-3-0 (for those of you who aren't hockey fans, that's twelve wins, three losses, and zero overtime losses).
