Pass the Cheese

Okay, this post has the potential to be VERY cheesy...don't say that I didn't warn you ;)

Last week's Smell the Roses task was to watch your all time favorite movie. I'm not a a movie buff by any means, and I'm usually behind on times when it comes to keeping up with new releases. But there is a movie that has been very near and dear to my heart since I watched it for the first time.

Ready for this?


Yep, A Walk to Remember! This is the first movie that I remember watching that made me bawl my eyes out throughout the entire thing. I couldn't get over the immense amount of love that was shared between these two total opposite people and it really touched me to watch Landon learn & develop because of love. Talk about going through a few boxes of tissues...


I'm gonna let you guys in on a little secret. But you have to promise not to tell Adam, okay? ;) Before we were officially dating (way back in 2006) Adam wrote me a 3 page letter (front & back) about how he felt about me. One of the lines that stood out to me was, "I want to support you in your dreams of being a wedding planner...I want to be your Landon." 

UM I DIE. How freaking sweet is that? He knew how much the movie meant to me.
Well I can tell you one thing, he has surpassed my "Landon" expectations by far. Oh and by the way, I wanted to be a wedding planner when I was in high school. All it took to get that out of my system was working at a wedding venue on the weekends for a few years...NO THANKS. And yes, I still have the letter that he wrote me over 6 years ago :)


 Ever since Adam wrote me that note, the movie has meant even more to me than it did before. I don't care how cheesy it is, it will always make me cry my eyes out. Just thinking about the movie brings memories flooding back from when Adam & I first started dating and I get all kinds of emotional. Adam is big on paying attention to little details and taking in everything that I say, which usually leads to pretty sweet/unexpected surprises. I love when Landon helps Jamie check off items from her bucket list, that part just makes my heart so full of joy and reminds me of Adam's little surprises :)


Confession: I have the entire soundtrack to the movie and just listening to it brings tears to my eyes. I guess you could say that I'm a cry baby! And another thing, Adam attempted to build me a telescope like the picture down below when we were in high school. Little did he know that it was going to cost him about $2,000...which is kind of out of the question when you're a senior in high school and mowing lawns to make your money. But hey, it's the thought that counted right?!


Did you watch your favorite movie last week? Leave a comment and let me know :) I'd love to go check out your Smell the Roses post if you did one!





This week's task:
Visit somewhere that you've never been before.

Whether it's a new restaurant, a new park, a new bookstore or even a new friend's house...go somewhere that you've never been before, shake it up a little bit :) To make it even more fun, visit somewhere that you've never been before with someone else who's never been there either!

  19. I have the movie too! And some of the soundtrack on my iPod! :-) Adam is too precious!

    My high school love saw the movie before I did, and he immediately called me. I didn't answer, and he left THE SWEETEST VOICEMAIL through TEARS! He was a total sweetheart, but my boyfriend before him had passed away, and he had seen what it was like for me to be "left behind". Of course, we watched the movie together, and I was sobbing!

    Such a lovely movie!
