Me, the fall, and Meg Ryan
I don't know what it is about these two movies but I can watch them over and over (and over) again and indeed I have. Both of these movies, "When Harry met Sally" and "You've got Mail", give me such a yearning to live in New York in the fall as the central characters do. When Harry and Sally walk through the bright yellow, red, and orange leaf-strewn Central Park, I just want to curl up with a spiced coffee and the Sunday Times crossword. Similarly, when Meg Ryan jauntily walks down the streets of New York, stopping to buy a pumpkin for her bookstore and remembering a line from an email about autumn being a time when you want to buy "bouquets of sharpened pencils," I am just smitten.
It's the first official day of fall today (yay!) and I definitely plan on cozying up with some warm cider (try this recipe from Martha Stewart) or a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and one of these movies.
What are you up to this weekend?
