It could be the fact that there is nothing more romantic than a fire, hot cocoa and cuddling. It could also be the fact that my heart can’t help but pitter patter at the sight of the first snow, but whatever the reason, I consider the holidays the most romantic time of the year.
For someone who is single (I'm not complaining...merely making an observation), this time of year reminds us that we have no significant other to purchase a gift for, no one to spend those cold winter nights cuddling with(except our best friends) and no one to bring to the holiday party.
That kiss at midnight is always disappointing. It reminds us that, February 14th is right around the corner and we will probably spend it alone AGAIN with a pint of mint chocolate chip and “She’s The Man” on DVD.
However, like I’ve said before, I am a hopeless romantic and this post is dedicated to everyone who loves to watch sappy, heartwarming tales of first love, everlasting love and unrequited love.
Here are my top 5 movie quotes to keep you warm and cuddly during the season of love. So grab your snuggie, some Kleenex and a bottle of pinot- ‘Cause ladies...it’s going to be a long winter!
5: If you have never seen this movie…go out and rent it. Heck, BUY IT! Every girl at some point has felt like Julia Roberts does in this movie. I HAVE!!! This movie is beyond “quotable”, but my favorite has to be…
"I have a favor to ask, I'm hoping it's not too much. After all, you said you'd always be there for me, so, here it goes: Don't like her. Don't pick her. Don't be with her. Anyone but HER. It hurts me too much. And if I could possibly fit one more thing in there if it is okay with you, maybe, just maybe, do you think you could fall for me?" - My Best Friend's Wedding
4. Everyone has seen this movie, read this book or danced in their jammies along with Bridget Jones and whether we want to admit it, we all want to be told…
"I like you just as you are." -bridget jones diary
3. Go grab your Pinot and your BFF. There is nothing sexier than British Accents and Jude Law in plastic glasses. And you aren’t fooling anyone by saying that there isn’t a guy that you will always love…no matter how much of an asshole he is. I WISH I could channel Iris in The Holiday and say this…but unfortunately I just don’t have the “Gumption”
“ Shush. You broke my heart. And you acted like somehow it was my fault, my misunderstanding, and I was too in love with you to ever be mad at you, so I just punished myself! For years! But you waltzing in here on my lovely Christmas holiday, and telling me that you don't want to lose me whilst you're about to get MARRIED, somehow newly entitles me to say, it's over. This - This twisted, toxic THING between us, is finally finished! I'm miraculously done being in love with you! Ha! I've got a life to start living…”
2. I've seen this movie make men weeeeep
“If you're a bird I'm a bird.”- The Notebook
"But for now, let me say - Without hope or agenda - Just because it's Christmas - And at Christmas you tell the truth - To me, you are perfect - And my wasted heart will love you "-Love Actually
What are your favorite movies or movie quotes???
