I know I resolved to be more consistent with my blogging this year. I have not fulfilled that resolution yet, but I am working on it. I have many subjects to write on so stick with me and stay tuned. Tonight I cannot help but write about “Into the Woods” because it is my current OBSESSION. I used all caps; this is serious!! I saw the movie two weeks ago with some friends, and we had a great time. Well, I did; I can’t speak for them. The movie was beautiful, funny, and dramatic. The casting was spot-on, the visuals mesmerizing, and the music addictive. I wanted to sing along the entire time, and I didn’t even know the words. Naturally, I purchased the soundtrack, and it is all I have been listening to this week. One of my favorite moments in the movie was Prince Charming and Rapunzel’s Prince splashing around in water singing about love-related agony. The scene was pretty much a girl’s dream come true. That song has been on repeat!! I highly recommend both the soundtrack and the movie if you are a fan of musicals. However, I caution you that this movie is not meant for young children despite the Disney label. Scenes such as the wolf enticing Red Riding Hood and Prince Charming kissing the baker’s wife could be scary and confusing respectively.
Until next time, dream dreams & make wishes readers!

P.S. I wish more than anything that “Into the Woods” be available on DVD right now.
