I am watching Sleepless in Seattle as I type this post during nap time...
"Now that was when people KNEW how to be in love. They knew it! Time, distance... nothing could separate them because they knew. It was right. It was real. It was..."
What a movie! It is seriously my favorite movie of all time. I am basically Meg Ryan's character in real life. It's scary.
