A glass of red wine with Julie and Julia

The weekend has come and gone!  It's been raining at this side of the world, but I never let the weather put me down.  Saturday night, while it was pouring down with rain outside, I was warm in my blanket and had a glass of red wine in front of my laptop, watching Julie and Julia.  Awhile back, I have read somewhere that it is a good film so when my husband and I went to Asda Saturday afternoon, I headed to the DVD shop and finally got it! (And just want to throw this in - I ate rubbish yesterday, too - McDonald's!  Is that too bad?)

If you haven't seen it yet, go and get a DVD because it is absolutely inspiring.  Merryl Streep was superb!  And Amy Adams, too!  I love how Paul (Julia's husband) told her how amazing her book is and that is a book of genius and that it is a book that will change the world!!!  That scene was so endearing.  Julie's husband wasn't so bad himself, ever so supportive of Julie all the time, even in her madness.

Yes, I liked the film so much.  And I felt really sad that Julie never met Julia.  And Julia never really knew what effect she had on Julie and how she turned her life around.  Tonight, I surfed the net and looked for anything written about Julie and Julia and came across Julie's blog!!! Yes, her real blog!!! The blog that was on the film!  I got so excited so I am now sharing it with you.

Here's the link:  The Julie/Julia Project .

Hope you enjoy it...and the film, too.  Because I did.

Have a great Monday, everyone!!!!

I liked the movie. First, I had read Julie and Julie, the book and My Life in France. Julia Child's story is so inspirational. I wrote a blog post about it almost a year ago to the day:

It is good to have a junk 'n' wine day now and then. Glad you enjoyed yours. :)

I just recently watched this movie on a lazy Sunday lounging around in my sweats. Afterward, I wanted to cook everything that they did in that movie. It was such a great movie. Thanks for sharing Julie's actual blog site. It's so plain, but her voice sounds the same as Amy Adams.
Great post! :D

I really enjoyed this film, too - although I admit I liked the Julia bits better than the Julie sections. Still, it was a really fun film to watch!

I loved this movie, it's what inspired me back in January to begin blogging, it's been amazing! I would never have thought to start a blog had it not been for that movie!

This is one movie I would love to watch but have not got round to doing it yet.

@ Theresa - thanks for sharing with me your post. I will check the book My Life in France, it sounds interesting!

@ Old Kitty - I totally agree - Meryl Streep at her best! She really did well on this one!

@ Glynis - have you seen the film? Hope you liked it.

@ Ellie - nice to see you here! I love your writing style! Thanks for coming :)

@Brenda - I think the blog lacks photos and colours, don't you think? I just felt good that I found it on line, that it was real, after seeing the film! :)

@ Talli - Haha! I enjoyed both but of course Meryll Streep is one of my favourite actresses so I love her to bits on this one, too! :)

@Jen - Yes, I totally agree, it's an inspirational film. I suddently thought of my own blog and began to think of the so many readers out there that don't leave a comment but DO read our stuff! :)

@Loree - I recommend this film :)
