“If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name.”

Film: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Starring: Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard

Synopsis: A young New York socialite becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building.

This week I want to approach the movie review in a different way. Whenever I watch a movie, certain parts stay with me because I can relate to the ideas or situation.

I love this movie, mostly because I can relate to Holly Golightly. She is a girl living an grown up lifestyle without ever really fitting in. She was popular, but because she put on a good show for all the people who knew her. No one really knew her until Paul Varjak moved in. He broke down her walls and exposed her insecurities, not in a cruel way, but to help her. Adam plays a similar role in my life. Now if only I could be half as classy in style as Holly. I'm working on it.

I love this movie. And I hadn't thought about it before, but I think David does that for me too. Interesting.

I've actually never seen this...but I've always wanted to! Maybe I can convince David to see it with me soon. Is it husband friendly?

I would give almost anything to have her bathtub couch. And wardrobe, obviously.
