    Do you know what this week is?

    The 60th Anniversary of the releasing of one of my all time favorite movies…

    The Quiet Man
    Nominated for seven Oscars, and 60 years later, it is still among Hollywood’s favorite romantic comedies.
    I mean, seriously, how could you go wrong with these two?

    Maureen O’Hara and The Duke will always be my favorite actors. {I know people think that’s goofy. But, so be it.} Now that I think about it, she is probably the reason I always wanted red hair! Maybe I love this movie because of childhood memories. Maybe it’s because I should have been born in another place and time. Maybe it’s just because I’m a romantic dork. Who knows! But, I love it. LOVE LOVE.
    To celebrate the 60th Anniversary, I made Manly sit down and watch it with me. He’s a good sport. I kept trying to take a fun picture of us cuddling as we watched my show, but it didn’t work because I’m camera challenged. For that, my husband is probably truly grateful. I’m sure he wouldn’t want proof of himself watching anything that doesn’t involve aliens, superhero’s, guts, and/or massive amounts of death… bless his heart.
    So, this is all I have to show for our cute impromptu date night, an iPhone photo of the cover of the movie. Go me.

    Anyhoo,
    take a break from all the Batman hysteria/modern day Hollywood guts and gore this week. Pop some popcorn, snuggle up to your sweetheart, dream of Ireland, and enjoy a little sap instead.
    Dang, I need some red lipstick.

    Happy 60th!
