a mood board + a simply love documentary series

jess at stamp in my passport {one great blog} has inspired me to create mood boards
i love hers and have been wanting to create one
so here is my first one
created on charlotte's first snow day:
+ a new documentary series on simply love 
i know i mentioned doing an 'old movie monday night' series {which i would still love to do} but i thought about it and i absolutely love documentaries; i have a passion for all mediums of non-fiction. i love to connect with real people; their love stories, their trials, successes, life lessons, etc. i am hoping to view several throughout the next year or so and am planning on sharing with you. 
i would love for you to join me as i share and explore a wide array. 

Love, Etc. is a documentary that follows five couples for one year in new york city: old, young, gay, straight, falling in love, getting married, having babies, breaking up. the film showed the complexities of romantic love--not just the happy stuff. i watched it yesterday during my snow day and adored it. it was funny, heartbreaking and beautiful. 

{i loved all of it but the secret is- i fell so in love with the elderly couple. for so many reasons. one of my favorite lines: "she loves me very deeply and i love her very deeply. you know, when you love somebody as the years go on- it gets stronger."} awe. and then the piano song - 'you haven't lived until you've loved' - so much love.
'we start with now.'

...here's the trailer...

what do you think, my darlings? would you want to see it?
