Last night was girl’s night at the movies! Janet, Erika and I went to see “Eat, Pray, Love” and it was incredible. I haven’t read the book yet and really didn’t know what to expect. I heard it got bad reviews, but everyone was telling me that since I have been to Italy I “have to go see it”. And I have to say, I was impressed.

I also really adored Julia Robert’s hair. In every scene it was just beautiful. I was actually distracted by it at times. She’s such a great actress, it’s refreshing watching her.

I loved how it was really four mini movies in one. Each location she visited was it’s own self-contained story with life lessons, comedy and really really good food. Read: lots of pasta. I think I drooled when I saw all of this!

All those Italian scenes made my heart flutter. Some of them literally took my breath away and I realized how much I missed Italy.

I ❤ Italy.

I think I need to see the movie again, or at least read the book, because there were so many amazing quotes in there that I wish I remembered. But I especially liked all the ones about ‘balance’ and finding inner peace. Ya’ll know how I’m always trying to find that balance (aren’t we all?) The quote that stuck out most in my mind was something along the lines of this: “Finding balance means loving yourself more than anyone else can.” How true it is…
