"But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough."

"Do you think our love can create miracles?"
The Notebook came out a long time ago. And as a person, a girl, who loves ridiculous romance, and loves movies, one would think this would be on my all time favorites list. One of the movies that I would pull out and watch again and again with my tissues near by.
But that's note case. I knew it was supposed to be epic- every girls favorite movie. And I knew that I would love it- everything from the wrap around porches on the big southern homes, to the 1940s hair and make-up. But I just never did. I could never find the moment where I just wanted to cry. Going into a movie just knowing you're going to end up bawling your eyes out- even if you don't know why- for me at least, makes me less likely to watch it.
But tonight, I don't know. I guess I decided to bite the bullet. I wanted to feel like that, to escape into another world the way great movies can. So I'm sitting here, tears streaming down my face, and I can say that I don't regret that decision for a moment. In fact I dearly regret not having seen this sooner.
