It’s Friday and these are my feelings.

tumblr_inline_ncq72uudTe1rw0c9sMy brother’s girlfriend lives in a really amazing house with a bunch of girls. Sometimes they have Wine and Feelings, wherein they do exactly what the name suggests and share their feelings in some solid girl-time. That sounds pretty wonderful to me. Seeing as how my current solo state at home would make Wine and Feelings a pathetic affair — as in, I think by yourself it just looks a lot like depression — I am going to dump some of my many emotions on you, O lovely Internet. Here are some Friday Feelings of late.

My annual viewing of this movie this week has me feeling like Fall is here. It’s one of my all-time favorites and just puts me in the mood for fall weather, cozy food, and imaginary creatures that keep you isolated far from the real world. Is it bad that I always feel like, yep, totally would have maintained the lie and stayed in the Village?

This video recently had me crying. Mostly because BUTTERFLY KISSES Y’ALL. And then I started imaging having to read this poem at the funeral of someone I loved and I just laid on the floor and sobbed for awhile. Yes, those two things are not the same at all as one is the story of someone’s actual pain and the other is just my incessant and dramatic imagination, but still. All the Feelings were had.

This photoshoot had me feeling amazed and in awe the way that only true beauty and ballerinas can. That top photo is one from the series by the amazing M.K. Sadler and if your feeling is not that it is one of the most beautiful things ever, than my feelings would kindly like to tell yours that they are ridiculous, gravely mistaken, and not invited back to the next Feeling Fest. Joking. Kind of. Ok, not really.

This article had me snort laughing out of my nose, the true zenith of responses to humor. By the way, yes it written 2 years ago, and no, I don’t care. Oh the joy of finding things after everyone else on the Internet! I experience that every time someone leaves a lengthy and opinionated comment disagreeing on this post and I just want to be like, “DUDE. This has been up for OVER A YEAR and I promise you that EVERY POSSIBLE FORM OF YOUR OPINION has already been voiced at least 20 times.”

This wedding video had me feeling ridiculously happy. Emily, I always rooted for you to find love, and deep down I think we all knew that you needed more than a man who whacked the last “f” of his name. But what I really love isn’t just her beautiful wedding, but that totally legit, plan o’ salvation, Biblical homily. The fact that heaven will be increasingly populated with reality TV stars thrills me to no end.

I guess that is enough feelings for a Friday morning. But please, join me in this emotion-palooza and feel free to dump below. All Feelings are welcome. But maybe not “Feels.” Still haven’t decided how I feel about that abbreviation that the youths are using these days but I am inclined against it.

    Every time someone suggests we see a movie at Carmike (once again the only cheap theater in town) I tell the story about the time we tried to watch The Village and they cut the movie off RIGHT AS SHE LOOKS UP TO SEE WHAT THE HECK HAS BEEN CHASING HER THROUGH THE WOODS.

    • Hannah says:

      THAT WAS THE WORST. I am incapable of watching this movie without making everyone hear that story. Truly, Carmike is an experience not for the faint of heart.

    That anthro article kind of reminds me of one of my all-time favorite blogs…

    ‘Wine & Feelings’, love that title. But I agree, not the same in your aloneness :-/
    I read that poem at my husbands funeral just last year. So spoke to my heart – esp the 3rd stanza.
    I also am against the abbreviation of such words. A current one here in New Zealand is ‘totes’ – very cute when coming from the mouth of my 11 yr old son in response to his mother’s requests – ‘totes babe’!
    Take care and thank you for sharing your Friday emotion-paloozas xxx

    • Hannah says:

      I will admit, I am guilty of the totes. But always corrected by James if he is within hearing distance!

      I teared up afresh hearing that you read it at his funeral. I feel like it sums up perfectly how crushing that loss must feel!

    OMG dyyying as I read that tumblr about Anthro products. Hilarious! Thank you so much for sharing the Emily Maynard wedding. It was so sweet and genuine, and it really warms my heart to see that she found true love that’s centered on Christ, after her all of her reality TV drama. So happy for her and Ricki! And man, her hubby’s a looker! Seriously, they make one gorgeous family.

    Also, I think I need to make Wine & Feelings happen in my life (with people of course, not alone).

  5. Jess says:

    Can’t wait for “Wine and Feelings” in Heaven with you, Fran, Emily, and Catherine.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who peruses random things on the internet until I’ve experienced the entire gamut of human emotion. That Anthro-post: HYSTERICAL. Wedding video: wow… just wow. Butterfly Kisses: in spite of how much eye rolling happens when I hear the first strains of that song, I ALWAYS end up crying, and that video was no exception… Sheesh. 🙂

    P.S. My hair wants to be Emily’s hair… is that too much to ask?!
