Can't help dreaming of lovely summer nights and fun ways to share them with the people I love.

I m a g i n e ...

You ... your friends ... family
and a b
and of crickets

watching a movie under the stars !


aybe a girls night floating in the pool watching
To Catch a Thief

with something fruity in hand ?
( you thought I was going to say Breakfast at Tiffany's didn't you ? )

Or, a candle lit picnic of
Pillow Talk
for date night ?

How romantic would that be ?

What would you show ?

I'm sensing a Cary Grant theme here
( how did
that happen ? )

Thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog. I am in love with yours. Especially the title!

I just watched "Charade" the other day and am dying to watch it again. It's a wonderfully, funny movie (at times)
