That's how you know

If any of you out there still haven't seen the movie Enchanted, you don't know what you're missing! I am a seriously tainted-by-all-things-disney hopeless romantic, and like most little girls truly believed that I would one day be rescued by prince charming, galantly riding in on a white horse, sword drawn, waiting to defend my honor. He would swoop in, save the day, swing me up by one arm onto the back of his stallion, give me the kiss I had been waiting for my whole life, and ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. C'mon, most of you believed it too.

But of course, one day we all grow up and realize that just isn't reality, but I still believe we hold onto most of those ideals as we go through our romantic relationships. We expect deep down to be cherished more than anything, to have our honor defended, to be protected, and want to be treated like the princess we are inside.

That is why "Enchanted" struck such a chord! This movie made me laugh right out loud, and I told Chris, if he would just memorize the words to the song "That's how you know" that he would forevermore know how to make me happy. Don't you remember being 16 at a dance and hoping to get asked for a slow dance by that one boy you really liked just so he would hold you close? And wouldn't you swoon to have a song dedicated with words that are just for you? I may mock Chris when he buys a CD and tells me a certain song made him think of me, but inside I really like it; And what really rings true for me is this : "You've got to tell her you need her, not treat her like a mind reader..."

Here's a link to the clip from the movie. Enjoy.

I haven't seen Enchanted yet, but I've heard great things. I also wanted to let you know that I started Twilight the other night because of your recommendation. It's so good, and I'm halfway through it already!
