Saw Breaking Dawn Part Two today and despite not having read the last book or being a ‘recognized’ Twihard I followed the story with ease. Overall I enjoyed the movie. My favorite part was the last ten minutes and when Edward is shown the past, it actually brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been accused of being overly emotional, a hopeless romantic, a softy……well I’ll take all of those crowns and wear them with pride!!! And when the flashback scene was set to the backdrop song by Christina Perri, a total Fav of mine, I knew it was going to be a moment that tugged hard at my heart strings!! I mean c’mon, how could you not feel it. Such a perfect love. Against all odds. The perfect match. It’s just what womem hope for. Whether you’re twelve or fifty, we all want that perfect person, that perfect family, that perfect set of friends, the life where you can turn to the people you love and know that they’ll be there! Ready to tear heads off and fight the hardest and bloodiest battles. And a partner, a mate, who is destined to be your special somebody. A thousand years. Its what I wish for you, for me, for everybody. Find your Edward. Find your Jacob, your Bella, your Alice. And don’t let anyone tell you its silly to be soft hearted and sweet and emotional. If you hear Christina Perri, she sings from the heart and from her own personal experiences, its ok to cry, its ok to want what Jasper and Alice have, what Bella and Edward have. The mass success of the series relies on the hope we all have that if not today, in some life, maybe a thousand years from now, we’ll all find the perfect protector lover confidant friend and soulmate. Thank you Meyer for a series that brought back romance and to C.P. for adding your angelic voice to what will become a cult classic. I’ve loved you since I first heard you on some dance show, that I never watch, but that night did, only to be amazed by your original song Jar of Hearts that hit me like a ton of bricks!!! I havent been that touched by lyrics in a long long time.
And to Straighty, what else can I say, except this series was written for people just like you, talk about hitting the target audience! Glad to have shared it with you. You made me feel better for the tears I shed, cuz you beat me tenfold kiddo. Good for you!
And shout out to Maryann, thx for your sweater, kept me toasty and warm. Like you always do. gonna miss you at movies when you have the baby. Xo
