Ah, Romance

Ah, it is February 14th, Valentine's Day. Romance is in the air. Or is that cabbage cooking? Nope, it's romance. Even though I do know Valentine's Day is a holiday tightly embraced by the card companies I still can’t help but get a warm tingling feeling when I think about my own true love. Uh huh. Tingly. All over. Yes, even after all these years. And, oh how I do love a good romantic movie.
So, let's give Cupid a break today...
(Poor little guy. It is so bloody cold here that I fear the dear soul may freeze wings off.)
...and stay in, cuddle under a quilt and watch a movie or four.
Here is a list of many of my favorite romantic films, in no particular order. Are any of YOUR personal favorites here? Perhaps there are some you might wish to see for the first time...
Murphy's Romance
Sabrina (Both Versions)
The Goodbye Girl
Barefoot In The Park
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Dr. Zhivago
The Way We Were
When Harry Met Sally
Sleepless In Seattle
You've Got Mail
While You Were Sleeping
Sense and Sensibilities
The African Queen
Bringing Up Baby
The Quiet Man
Roman Holiday
City of Angels
Foreign Affairs
My Favorite Wife
The Lion of Africa
Notting Hill
It Could Happen To You
Return To Me
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
The American President
Just Like Heaven
Sweet Home Alabama
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Just remember...if you are not *in love* now, don't give up hope! No one is ever too old to find love...
Love can be just around the corner, on a beach, a plane, in a classroom, at the DMV, at an auto repair shop or even at an interstate rest area. Just open your heart. And eyes. And nose. Smell it? Romance IS in the air...

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I too am a sucker for romance...but I think I've missed seeing several of these movies. I'll have to put them on my list of ones I need to see.

Happy Valentine's Day, Sue! Some of my favorite movies are in your list: You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, and Moonstruck. Enjoy your day, and your chocolate!

Happy Valentines Day Sue..!
Lots of snow here too, poor cupid..he must be blue with cold..!
My romantic movie has to be Barefoot in the Park..hubby and I saw it around Valentines Day in 1968 and decided to get married, and we did... 6 weeks later in March 1968. We just watched it again, and you know what...I would marry him all over again too..!

Great movie choices! I love Serendipity, When Harry Met Sally, Moonstruck, and Sabrina. I would have to add Out Of Africa, Say Anything, and The Lake House to the list too. So many good ones. I may have to dig out a romantic movie to watch tonight!
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day today! It is actually COLD Down South today!!! Brrr....

Wishing you a most wonderful Happy Valentine's Day - the card company thing is true - which is why we all need to spread the love beginning for ourselves and then to those around us every day. So I send some to you now...for being a fun and bright spot of my day.
Great list of films, I think I've seen them all. Good idea to curl up and watch a few!

Susie I don't mind having my blog linked to yours in the least. I have done the same with your blog. I just love visiting you. Cabbage cooking! How funny! You have some of my fave movies listed there. I haven't seen Chocolat yet, must add it to my list.

Love many of those movies. I think the vintage cards are wonderful. I have the exact post card you do!
Are you a collector too?? It's very old, from when Bill's Dad was a boy!
