That’s a Wrap!

This past weekend and week flew by! Graduation festivities will do that to you. To unwind a bit after the back-to-back events, I went to see The Met’s China: Through the Looking Glass, and it was a stunning exhibition (photo above). If you’re in NYC this summer it’s worth visiting. Monday is Memorial Day – remember to honor the men and women who have given their lives in service to our country. And now, let’s wrap up the week with a recap…

SAYING GOODBYE: To David Letterman. Letterman’s final Late Show aired on Wednesday, and it was celeb-filled.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: To Nora Ephron. The beloved writer and director would have been 74 on May 19th. To remember her, 12 ways she taught us to be better women.

READ: I finished Luckiest Girl Alivlate last week (it took me two days – I couldn’t put it down). Reese Witherspoon will be turning it into a movie.

WATCH: This movie looks so good.

WES ANDERSON: How well do you know his style? I got 65% – I clearly have some more Wes Anderson movies to watch.

HELPFUL: How to read a recipe.

Have a nice weekend!

Happy Birthday, Woody!

Yesterday, December 1, was Woody Allen’s birthday. He turned 78 years old. I’ve made it abundantly clear that I’m a huge Woody Allen fan. It all started halfway through college when I wrote about him for one of my film classes. I quickly became hooked on his writing, films, and humor, and I ended up writing a 50+ page paper about him, his life, and his films and writing. It was one of my favorite papers to write, and it never once felt like ‘work.’ He is a fascinating man and if you haven’t seen one of his movies, you’ve got a lot to choose from. Get started! I’m almost jealous if you haven’t seen any of his work because that just means you get to discover and watch his talent for the first time. With over 50 films, there are so many to enjoy. Having thoroughly enjoyed his recent films (Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine, in particular), I can’t wait to see his next film, Magic in the MoonlightHappy birthday, Woody!
