A favorite movie can earn its rank for any number of reasons. The story itself can have special meaning for you, or you might connect with the characters. It might become a favorite because of when or where you first saw it, or because you can watch it over and over and never get tired of it. (And a shout-out to New Jersey always good too – Hello, New Jersey!) For all of these reasons, and many more, You’ve Got Mail is my favorite movie.
For the last ten-plus years (has it really been that long?) I’ve loved this movie for its simple story, for the beautifully written characters, for all of the books, and the daisies. Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan’s character) loves daisies in the movie, and they’re my favorite flower, too. I just watched the movie again the other night, and it got me craving a bouquet of fresh daisies for my kitchen table.
For now, I’ll settle for the next best thing and share this photo of daisies I took a little while ago. It’s from Colonial Park, and – as any picture with daisies in it is – it’s Picture Perfect to me…
