living in: amelie


Hi loves, today is a very special day for us.  What, please say you didn’t forget…  It’s our one year anniversary of this wonderful, fulfilling, spiritually enriching, soul satisfying (stop me if I get carried away) relationship we have going on here that I like to call living in.  On our first date, we talked about this movie, and since then we’ve had a total of 47 spectacular dates. 47 spectacular dates is hard to top.  No joke, this has been the most consistently loving and stable relationships thus far in my 26 years.  See ex-boyfriends?  I’m not a commitment-phobe after all.

    Amy, I think you and I were separated at birth, because we have the same taste in movies! Who doesn’t cry when Dominique Bretodeau finds the tin box in the phone booth! Who doesn’t want to ride off on the back of Nino’s motorbike? Who doesn’t want to redecorate their house in shades of red?!

  2. I missed this one over the summer. I have always loved this movie, so glad to see it was featured here. I love the wall paper that was chosen, it looks very vintage Edwardian, perfect for Amelie’s bedroom.
